Mission & Values

Values Matter

At Whole Foods Market®, "healthy" means a whole lot more. It goes beyond good for you, to also encompass the greater good. Whether you're hungry for better, or simply food-curious, we offer a place for you to shop where value is inseparable from values.

Our Core Values

These eight values are the backbone of our company culture and how we aspire to do business every day – with you, our supplier partners, our customer and worker communities, and each other.

EXPLORE OUR VALUES

Quality Standards

To give you the best experience and products, we consider quality the highest form of value. Here that means strict standards that take into account such things as artificial food preservatives, sustainable seafood, animal welfare, antibiotics in meat and pesticides in vegetables. We don’t sell just anything, because when you want natural food products, we are committed to going beyond your expectations.

DIG DEEPER

Caring for Communities

As a store that brings local and global products to you, we believe that community extends beyond the boundaries of the towns and cities where we have stores. We're committed to improving the lives and opportunities of people in communities around the world where we do business.
