GROCERY CHAIN ELIMINATES TRANS FAT IN ITS COOKING OIL

C&K Market is pleased to announce the company's 60 grocery stores will switch to Wesson Trans Fat-Free Frying Oil as of Sept. 8.

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.
