The Company Contrast – Kroger

Each week 2ndVote will be taking a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system, and then providing some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on today is Kroger (1.6 – Liberal).

Kroger Co. is one of the largest grocery chains that operates over 20 brands including Kroger, King Soopers, Dillons, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, QFC, Harris Teeter, and Smith’s. Even though Kroger provides a large selection of items at low costs, shopping there may undermine your values based on their continual contributions to the liberal leftist movement.

Kroger Co. scores a 1.6 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of their contributions to organizations such as ACLU, Planned Parenthood, USHCC, and many more leftist organizations. To see all of the reasons Kroger scores so poorly, you can click on their company score page here

Fortunately, when you need to make a trip to the grocery store but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative values, there are better alternatives out there. Schnucks (4 – Lean Conservative), Aldi (3 – Neutral), and Food City (3 – Neutral) all offer great options to get your groceries without funding the left’s agenda. These stores’ neutral stance on issues and commitment to providing fresh and affordable groceries is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to Kroger.
