Whole Foods Market
Whole Foods Market is a dynamic leader in the quality food business. They are a mission-driven company that aims to set the standards of excellence for food retailers.
Whole Foods Market was founded in Austin, Texas, when four local businesspeople decided the natural foods industry was ready for a supermarket format. Their founders were John Mackey and Renee Lawson Hardy, owners of Safer Way Natural Foods, and Craig Weller and Mark Skiles, owners of Clarksville Natural Grocery. The original Whole Foods Market opened in 1980 with a staff of only 19 people. It was an immediate success. At the time, there were less than half a dozen natural food supermarkets in the United States. They have grown by leaps and bounds since our first store opened.
Whole Foods seeks out the finest natural and organic foods available, maintains the strictest quality standards in the industry, and has an unshakeable commitment to sustainable agriculture.
Wholesome Goodness is on a mission to replace food that’s become highly processed, loaded with sodium, sugar and fat. They’re dedicated to making foods that are naturally delicious, better-for-you, made with clean ingredients, and affordable to the masses.
