Whole Trade Guarantee Videos
Whole Trade Overview
A brief roses'-eye view of Whole Foods Market’s Whole Trade program. Products that wear the label — flowers, fresh produce, coffee, sugar and more — must meet high-quality standards and a commitment to better wages and working conditions, environmental responsibility and worker-determined community improvement projects.
Whole Trade Campos Borquez Asparagus
Whole Foods Market sources Whole Trade asparagus from Campos Borquez in Sonora, Mexico. Workers at Campos Borquez voted to invest Whole Trade community development funds into a dental clinic and an optometry clinic for farmworkers and their families.
Whole Trade Flowers Help Real People
Whole Trade flowers provide funds that go directly into important community programs. Those few extra dollars end up funding first homes for families, children attending school, community art programs, medical and dental treatments and an overall improvement in the quality of life of workers, their families and their community.
Whole Trade Haitian Francis Mangoes
Whole Foods Market is the sole buyer of Fair Trade Certified mangoes from Haitian growers, sometimes buying from a family with just one tree. The Whole Trade Guarantee ensures growers receive equitable pay — a key point since this mango crop is a major source of income for many of these families.
