Mission & Values
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.
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.
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.
