Beginning July 24, Mile High Organics, an online organic grocer based in Boulder, will begin making deliveries to Summit County customers, according to a company news release.
First established in 2010, Mile High Organics has been a year-round source of genetically modified organism-free organic groceries for Front Range residents. In 2011 it became the first United States Department of Agriculture-certified online organic grocer in the country.
To celebrate its expansion to residents in Dillon, Silverthorne, Breckenridge and Frisco, Mile High Organics is offering anyone who places an order for July 24 a 10 percent discount on groceries through the end of 2013.
Deliveries will take place weekly on Wednesdays, the release stated, and orders must be placed online at www.milehighorganics.com or over the phone at 303-835-1212 by 10 a.m. Tuesday. Deliveries come in reusable, insulated packaging, and products are guaranteed until midnight on delivery day.
Considering the high demand and limited supply of organic foods in the mountains, Mile High Organics founder and CEO Michael Joseph said an expansion into Summit County made obvious sense.
“Not only have we been asked to provide our service in the mountains, we’re excited to bring home delivery and Front Range prices to make mountain living even better,” Joseph said in the release. “We have taken extra care in making sure that our service will work for people in the mountains before our first delivery there. Thousands of items have been added to our selection so that members can skip a lengthy trip to the grocery store.”
Mile High Organics also is delivering to other communities along the I-70 corridor, including Vail, Avon, Edwards and Wolcott.
The company was recently recognized by the Organic Consumers Association as one of the 50 best Right-To-Know grocers in the U.S. for the transparency of their product ingredients and labeling policies, the release stated. Mile High Organics carries a wide selection of groceries, including organic meat and produce, household items and nutritional supplements.
“Not only have we been asked to provide our service in the mountains, we’re excited to bring home delivery and Front Range prices to make mountain living even better,” Mile High Organics founder and CEO Michael Joseph said.
