Tasty owner adds Nature's Own to PA bread lines

Trucks bread from Norfolk, until Oxford plant opens next year

Tasty owner adds Nature's Own to PA bread lines

Flowers Foods, the Georgia company that bought Tastykake last year and plans to add a bread-baking line at Tasty's Oxford, Chester County plant, has started shipping its Nature's Own brand breads to Giant, Wal-Mart, Redner's and Weis markets in Pennsylvania, Tasty president Dan Scott said in a statement.

Nature's Own, already available in Delaware and Maryland, is now being trucked farther north from Flowers' Norfolk, Va., bakery, in anticipation of the Oxford plant's opening next year. Flowers says Nature's Own soft breads contains "no artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors," and "no high fructose corn syrup."
