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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
