Global Whole Body Buyer
As a global Whole Body buyer at Whole Foods Market, Steven Benoit purchases supplements and personal care products for the company’s stores.
Benoit’s career in the natural food industry began at a small, local health food store in Austin, Texas, where he worked as a body care buyer. Benoit later worked as a supplement and lifestyle buyer at a Whole Foods Market store in Austin, before taking a job with an international supplement company, which enabled him to grow relationships with hundreds of business partners throughout the United States.
Benoit returned to Whole Foods Market in 2011 as a global competitive analyst; in that role he was responsible for financial, merchandising, and product reporting. He returned to his roots in 2014, joining the global Whole Body team in his current role.
Outside of work, he enjoys perfecting his coffee brewing skills, spending as much time as possible at the beach (or anywhere outside), experimenting with new personal care and supplement products, and bonding with his dog.
