These are the stories of the dreamers and the doers, the farmers, the bakers, the organic soy candlemakers. Whole Foods Market is the sum of our suppliers, our Team Members, and our customers. They are our inspiration.
We’re on a mission: to nourish people and the planet. What does that really mean? Scroll down, and we won’t just tell you, we’ll show you. These are the real people behind the products – a community of some of the smartest, most passionate, hardest-working folks you’ll ever meet.
Welcome to the Whole Story.
Sourcing Evolution in Action: Transparency and Technology
“Pacha/Soli are quite simply one of my favorite brands and have been since a glorious box of bar soap crossed my desk years ago…”
The term is everywhere, but what does it actually mean, and how could it shift agriculture and food systems for the better? Read on, dig in, and discover how we’re supporting this growing movement by working with farmers, ranchers, scientists, and experts across the food industry.
Obsessed with animal welfare? Ingredients? Traceability? Sourcing? We are too. Our obsession with the highest quality food, supplements, and natural products began over forty years ago when we opened our first store and started banning unacceptable ingredients. Over the years, we’ve created Quality Standards that work on your behalf every day, helping to make sure you can trust what’s on our shelves.
At Whole Foods Market, we’d be nothing without our suppliers. Relationships and collaboration are the cornerstone of what we’ve built over the last forty years, in hopes of creating a better future for all of us.
