Wisconsin Natural Acres Sweetens Its Midwest Expansion

Premium Chicago Retailer Added to Its Rapidly Growing Distribution Network

CHILTON, WI--(Marketwire - July 17, 2008) - Wisconsin Natural Acres (WNA), producer of all-natural honey and home to millions of healthy and thriving honeybees, today announced the continued expansion of its distribution throughout the Midwest, by adding Fox & Obel, located in Chicago, to its expanding high-end distribution network.

Opened in 2001, Fox & Obel was created to be Chicago's first world-class food market. Packed with locally grown organic produce, prime beef dry-aged on the premise, freshly baked artisan bread and pastries, seafood flown to Chicago the day it is caught and a collection of the finest cheeses, Fox & Obel has won praise from countless fans and media outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, which lauded the market for having "A feast of options..." The Chicago Sun Times recently praised Fox & Obel for having a "Large wine selection, fresher-than-fresh meat and fish, great hunks of cheese, fresh breads, glass cases full of to-go items and bottles of truffle balsamic vinegar."

"Fox & Obel provides their customers with more than just food; they give them an experience, providing them with access to high-quality, fresh ingredients at reasonable prices," said Doug Schulz, proprietor and co-founder of Wisconsin Natural Acres. "The shopping experience the market gives their customers mirrors our company's values of allowing everyone to enjoy all-natural premium honey."

To confirm the honey's pureness, WNA recently commissioned S-F Analytical Laboratories to test its honey for insecticides, chemicals or other foreign substances. S-F Laboratories is one of the Midwest's largest environmental, industrial and food analysis facilities, serving the testing needs of more than 4,000 clients throughout the US and Canada. Test results were overwhelmingly favorable, with no detectable amounts of organo-phosphate, chlorinated insecticides or antibiotics being found in WNA's honey.
