Kroger said Tuesday it is mulling the sale of its Turkey Hill ice cream and beverages business unit.
The company has hired Goldman Sachs to evaluate and "explore strategic alternatives, including a potential sale," company reps said. The business unit employs almost 800 full-time, part-time and seasonal associates.
Turkey HIll produces a full line of popular iced teas, fruit drinks, milk, frozen dairy treats and a variety of ice cream in its Conestoga, Pennsylvania, manufacturing and distribution facility. 
Kroger owns 38 food manufacturing plants, including 19 dairies, that produce the grocer's portfolio of house brands. The namesake Kroger, Private Selection, Simple Truth, Psst... and other brands generate more than $20 billion in sales for the company.
Kroger's offerings from house brands also fits prominently in its strategy of offering customers lower prices as supermarket competition intensifies with Amazon jumping into the industry last year with its Whole Foods takeover.
"Turkey Hill's successful and recognizable ice cream and beverage products have the potential for greater growth outside of our company," said Erin Sharp, group vice president for Kroger Manufacturing.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body.

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
