GROCERY CHAIN ELIMINATES TRANS FAT IN ITS COOKING OIL

Foods prepared in the Ray's deli and bakery sections will now be prepared with Wesson Crystal Smart Choice Cottonseed Canola Oil, an oil that brings out the natural flavors of food, while protecting against flavor transfer between products.

"We aim to bring the highest quality ingredients to our customers each time they visit our deli and bakery," said Doug Nidiffer, president and CEO, C&K Market, Inc. "We value our customers' health and listen to their concerns about recent trans fat research, so we're happy to make this change in our stores."

Signage informing customers of the change in frying oil will be proudly displayed at the deli department of Ray's, Shop Smart, and Priceless Food locations.

Wesson Crystal Smart Choice Cottonseed Canola Oil is a product of ConAgra Foods, Inc. ConAgra Foods Inc. is one of North America's largest packaged food companies, serving grocery retailers, as well as restaurants and other foodservice establishments.

C&K Market, Inc. is a family-owned company based in Brookings. The company owns Ray's Food Place full service grocery stores, Shop Smart, Price Less Foods stores, and Pharmacy Express.

In 1957, Raymond L. "Ray" Nidiffer purchased a one-half interest in the C&K Market in Brookings, buying out Kimberly and joined Collins in the C&K partnership. In 1969, Collins decided to retire and sold his interest to Ray. As the sole owner of the corporation, Ray began growing the company.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Ray's store opened in 1957, the company now operates 60 stores in Oregon and California.

  • Asian stocks set for worst monthly drop in three years as Fed, China loom
    Global financial markets looked set for another rough week on Monday, with stocks and commodities falling ahead of data that could give clues on when the U.S. will raise interest rates and surveys which are likely to point to further weakness in China. Confusion over policy direction in the world's two largest economies sent global markets into turmoil early last week, with the wildest price swings in years pushing investors to the exits. European shares looked set to follow Asian shares and U.S. stock futures lower on Monday, with Germany's share index (.GDAXI) expected to open down 1.35 percent and France's CAC 40 (.FCHI) likely to fall 1.39 percent, according to IG.
  • Exclusive: Citi aims to boost equities franchise amid industry shakeout
    Citigroup plans to rebuild its long-neglected equities franchise seeking to capitalize on a retrenchment by rivals in the face of new rules designed to make the financial system less risky, according people familiar with the bank's plans. Citi has also hired 11 analysts so far this year to support its investment advisory business, and is increasing financing of the unit in general, said the sources, who did not have permission to be quoted in the media.
  • Focus turns to U.S. data as China slowdown looms
    After a dizzying two weeks that saw a rapid plunge and rebound in equity prices, investors are looking forward to a week of economic data that may provide clarity on the likelihood of a near-term U.S. interest rate hike and help tamp down the market's recent wild swings. The economic figures will culminate in Friday?s jobs report that should reveal more about the strength of the U.S. economy. Car sales, construction spending, the Federal Reserve's "beige book" and jobs growth may show the economy is strong enough to withstand the first rate hike in nearly a decade from the Federal Reserve, despite worries about a hard landing for China?s economy.
