Eat Happy Kitchen Strikes Southwest Distribution Agreement with Whitestone Natural Foods

Organically sourced, gluten-free, no sugar added product line adds 35 retail storefronts across California and Arizona to growing number of smaller chain stores, natural grocers, and co-ops.


Los Angeles, CA, March 15, 2022 – Eat Happy Kitchen, manufacturer of small-batch organically sourced, gluten-free and no sugar added food products, today announced a partnership with Whitestone Natural Foods, a purveyor of premium food and beverages, to distribute its line of authentic sauces to 35 natural and gourmet grocers across the southwest United States. The distribution agreement expands Eat Happy Kitchen’s rapidly growing retail footprint, which currently includes stores in California, Arizona, Colorado and Georgia

The agreement with Whitestone Natural Foods introduces Eat Happy Kitchen to retail consumers who place an emphasis on healthy living. The network of grocers whose store shelves now feature Eat Happy Kitchen products include all 11 Lassens locations across California, Farmshop LA in Brentwood, and a variety of other natural food markets in Arizona and up the California coast.

“I established Eat Happy Kitchen to offer authentic, healthful foods that are as flavorful as they are clean,” said Anna Vocino, founder and CEO of Eat Happy Kitchen, and author of two bestselling Eat Happy cookbooks. “Earning a spot in Whitestone’s carefully curated product portfolio, and on the shelves of some of the most admired and discerning retailers in the natural food industry, is a true testament to our quality and appeal. For people living with Celiac, including me, gluten-free is not a preference; it’s a necessity. We go to great lengths to deliver foods true to their claims, and that customers can trust.”

The Eat Happy Kitchen products that Whitestone Natural Foods now distributes include original Marinara Sauce, Puttanesca Sauce, which adds a complex layer of spices to the marinara, and Pink Crema Sauce, a richer sauce that includes heavy cream and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Additional products will be introduced in the near future.

“Adding a premium brand like Eat Happy Kitchen to our offerings further underscores the reputation we’ve built with our retail network to identify and deliver the finest natural foods available,” noted Adam Cardeñas, executive vice president, Whitestone Natural Foods. “The positive feedback we’ve already received about Eat Happy Kitchen from our retailers is a win for them, a win for Eat Happy Kitchen, and a win for us. It’s a perfect scenario.”
