FORT LEE, Virginia — Two private label product lines have joined the Defense Commissary Agency’s family of commissary brands, adding organic baby food and organic vegetables to its growing inventory of low-cost, national brand equivalents.

Since April 1, the TippyToes brand of organic baby food has joined the commissary brand lineup, and starting in May, Full Circle Market will offer organic beans and chick peas, said Jennifer Ferrell, DeCA’s private label program manager.
