MASHING UP MIAMI

A few months ago, JugoFresh, a pressed organic juice company with several retail locations in South Florida, opened up a “store within a store” at the new Whole Foods Market in downtown Miami.

This is quite unusual because JugoFresh is one of the very, very few external vendors to have such an arrangement, out of the hundreds of Whole Foods Market stores worldwide. (All items are paid for at the JugoFresh counter, instead of the regular Whole Foods Market checkout line.) Read more »

There are very few people on the planet that have more insight into what is going on in the organic food industry than the department heads and buyers at Whole Foods Market.

After all, these are individuals who put billions of dollars worth of products on supermarket shelves. Not only are they market influencers and tastemakers, but at the end of the day, they are also responsible for figuring out what consumers are willing to spend their money on.

WHAT’S IN STORE

As most you of probably know, Whole Foods Market just launched its very first national ad campaign called Values Matter. The goal was to communicate the tremendous importance of how and from where the company sources its food.

Yet, the ad campaign is hardly the only new initiative the company is rolling out.

In its recently opened store in Alpharetta, Georgia, Whole Foods Market is beta-testing a new format that will improve and increase its engagement with shoppers. Read more »

A MARKET ON WHEELS

When Co-CEO Walter Robb first envisioned how Whole Foods Market could play an active role in improving fresh food access to underserved populations in this country, my guess is that trolleys were not on his mind.

But thanks to an incredibly enterprising woman in Portland, Oregon named Amelia Pape, the company may have found its most important and unexpected vehicle (no pun intended) to achieve this goal.

Having recently finished her MBA at Portland State in 2011, Amelia Pape felt a calling to tackle the food access problem as well. Read more »

It didn’t take long for me to be blown away by a new drink called Graindrops.

And apparently, the same holds true for Whole Foods Market, who first discovered Graindrops ten years ago in Germany at BioFach 2004, the world’s largest trade show dedicated to organic products.

At the time, Graindrops had only been selling single grain (rice, oat, spelt) milks in Europe.

But these were hardly your average milks. Read more »
