February 28, 2012 - Buffing organic labels clean in the personal care aisle
Any food with “organic” on the label is subject to strict standards and enforcement by the Federal government, but personal care products are not.

December 12, 2011 - Sourcing locally: how small producers thrive and define Whole Foods Market
When Whole Foods Market first opened its doors as a small natural and organic retailer in 1980, local producers were the lifeblood of our business. More than 30 years and 340 stores later, that fact still rings true. We know what it feels like to be a small business with a big vision and understand that local businesses (even those with the highest quality products and a strong business plan) sometimes need a hand to turn their dreams into reality—that’s why Whole Foods Market launched the Local Producer Loan Program. By funding low-interest loans, our goal is to help small producers grow their business and give them a fighting chance in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
