Food Lion, based in Salisbury, N.C., is a company of Delhaize America, the U.S. division of Brussells-based Delhaize Group (NYSE:DEF). Food Lion has a long-standing heritage of low prices and convenient locations.

Food Lion was founded as Food Town on December 11, 1957, in Salisbury, N.C., by Brown Ketner, Ralph Ketner and Wilson Smith.

By the time Delhaize "Le Lion", now parent company Delhaize Group, acquired its first stake in the company in 1974, 19 stores were in existence. In 1982 Food Town hit another milestone as it changed its name to Food Lion to represent expansion and the heritage of its parent company.

Food Lion employs more than 62,000 associates, with 31,000 in North Carolina, the home of its corporate offices and more than 500 stores.
