High Quality Standards
Many of us are concerned with knowing what goes into the products we buy. Whole Foods Market’s rigorous quality standards make that easier. If a product doesn’t meet their standards, they don’t sell it. Whole Foods Market always:
- Carefully evaluates each and every product sold.
- Features foods that are free of artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, sweeteners and hydrogenated fats. Nothing in the entire store has any of these ingredients in them!
- Is passionate about great tasting food and the pleasure of sharing it with others.
- Is committed to foods that are fresh, wholesome and safe to eat.
- Seeks out and promotes organically grown foods.
- Provides food and nutritional products that support health and well-being.
In addition to high quality standards throughout the store, Whole Foods has additional department-specific standards. For example, in the Whole Foods seafood department you’ll never find:
- Antibiotics, growth hormones or poultry and mammalian products in feed
- Genetically modified or cloned seafood
- Added preservatives
Additionally, all farmed fish have a minimal environmental impact, are traceable from farm to store and have undergone rigorous audits from third-party testers.
