About Ralphs

As the largest food retailer in Southern California, Ralphs has served loyal customers fresh produce, meats, seafood, and dairy since 1873. Headquartered in Compton, California, the brand strives to bring customers high-quality foods and products at affordable prices. You can find everything from local produce to prepared meals made with natural ingredients. If you enjoy shopping for natural and organic foods, you'll find your favorite companies along with Ralphs own Simple Truth brand.

Ralphs started in downtown Los Angeles as a small local grocery store with brothers George A. And Walter Ralphs running the business. By the 1940s, they had more than 25 stores throughout Southern California. In 1994, Ralphs merged with Food-4-Less, and in 1989, both chains merged with Fred Meyer under the umbrella company of Kroger Co. The company values its relationship with the local community and offers discounts and community rewards to help those in need. Kroger's Framework for Action program has advocated diversity, equality, and inclusion for all of its team members.
