CLAREMONT, NH - North Country Smokehouse is expanding its distribution to the West through new partnerships with KeHe, Tony's Fine Foods, and Newport Meats, as well as California-based retailers Gelson's Market and Bristol Farms. 

"Expanding our footprint to the West Coast was a natural next step for us," said Aaron Corbett, chief executive officer of North Country Smokehouse. "Consumers are looking for humanely raised and organic meats and they want to buy from brands that value social responsibility. The West Coast leads the charge when it comes to actively seeking out better-for-you foods. Not only do they eat humanely raised and organic meat more frequently, but they also search out transparent brands they know they can trust." 

For three decades, North Country Smokehouse exclusively focused on restaurant distribution before entering the retail space five years ago.  

In addition to new partnerships in the West, North Country Smokehouse can be found in most retailers along the East Coast like Hannaford, Stop & Shop, Shaw's, Market Basket, Big Y, Target, and more than 300 Whole Foods Market locations.
