Introduction

WHOLE FOODS MARKET stores feature an exciting choice of thousands of products and a
unique shopping experience. Our stores are filled with healthful ingredients, abundant
samples, open kitchens where our in-store chefs conjure up ever-changing selections of
prepared foods, scratch bakeries, hand-stacked produce, take-out food stations, gourmet
cheese displays, European-style charcuterie departments, and pristine seafood cases that
bring fresh product up to eye level. To enrich your cooking at home, there are also
recipe cards to take with you, entertaining ideas, and the latest information on
emerging food issues.

From the beginning, Whole Foods Market emerged as a true innovator, transforming
food shopping from a chore into a dynamic experience that enlivens all the senses. The
wondrous sights, sounds, smells, and activity make each shopping trip a true experience
of discovery. Like the public markets of years past, Whole Foods Market stores play a
unique role as a community meeting place where friends can gather, interact, and learn,
while at the same time discover the many joys of eating and sharing food.

Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet™
WE believe in a virtuous circle entwining the food chain, human beings, and
Mother Earth: Each is reliant upon the others through a beautiful and delicate
symbiosis.
Whole Foods: We obtain our products locally and from all over the world—often
from small, uniquely dedicated food artisans. We strive to offer the highest
quality, least processed, most flavorful, and naturally preserved foods. Why?
Because food in its purest state—unadulterated by artificial additives,
sweeteners, colorings, and preservatives—is the best tasting and most nutritious
food available.
Whole People: We recruit the best people we can to become part of our team. We
empower them to make their own decisions, creating a respectful workplace
where people are treated fairly and are highly motivated to succeed. We look for
people who are passionate about food. Our Team Members are also well-rounded
human beings. They play a critical role in helping build the store into a
profitable and beneficial part of its community. Also, our customers are the
lifeblood of our business, and we celebrate the fact that this knowledgeable
consumer group turns to us for the very best, most natural food and nutritional
products available. We go to extraordinary lengths to serve our customers
competently, efficiently, knowledgeably, and with flair.
Whole Planet: We believe companies, like individuals, must assume their share
of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth. On a global basis, we actively support
organic farming—the best method for promoting sustainable agriculture and
protecting the environment and the farmworkers. On a local basis, we are
actively involved in our communities by supporting food banks, sponsoring
neighborhood events, compensating our Team Members for community service
work, and contributing at least 5 percent of total net profits to not-for-profit
organizations.

OUR VISION & PHILOSOPHY
As a pioneer of the natural foods movement, Whole Foods Market was part of a small
but vocal group concerned with how the raw ingredients that ultimately ended up on
our dinner tables and in our children’s lunch boxes were grown, processed, and sold.
Through the years, many of our foods had lost much of their true flavor due to the
advent of modern farming practices, the disappearance of the small family farm, and the
increased use of synthetic chemicals in production. Operating against the mainstream
view over two decades ago, this group shared a simple vision: The purity of our food
and the health of our bodies are directly related to the purity and health of our
environment. The vitality and well-being of each individual is a microcosm of a much
larger culture, global in stature.
When we opened our first store in 1980, the seeds that represent Whole Foods
Markets unique core values and commitment to “Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole
Planet™” were first planted. In fact, this commitment has become our motto and today
expresses our philosophy: The planet’s health and human health are inextricably linked
with how we grow our food and what we eat. We have since cultivated those seeds to
grow into the world’s largest organic and natural foods supermarket—a company of
“heart and soul.”
We carry natural and organic products because we believe that food in its purest state
—unadulterated by artificial additives, sweeteners, colorings, and preservatives—is the
best tasting and most nutritious food available. We actively support organic farming
because we believe it is the best method for promoting sustainable agriculture as well as
protecting the environment and farmworkers. By seeking out farmers and food artisans
from around the corner as well as all around the world, Whole Foods Market searches
for not only the purest but also the freshest and most flavorful foods available.
