Whole Foods Market Celebrates Supplier All-Stars

Whole Foods Supplier All-Stars

Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods Market has named the recipients of its annual Supplier All-Star Awards, recognizing 15 brands aligned with the grocer’s core values.

This year’s recipients, which are being honored for their contributions throughout 2022, have spent between two and 28 years on Whole Foods Market’s shelves. The awards program, in its 11th year, was previously known as Supplier of the Year Awards.

They include Abbot’s Butcher, Athletic Brewing Co., Blue Stripes Urban Cacao, Ciruli Brothers, Eel River Organic Beef, FRIAL, Jasper Hill Farm, Kettle Cuisine, New Chapter, Organic Valley, Pangea Shellfish Co., Patagonian Lamb, SIMPLi, The Elite Flower and Vital Farms.

“We are proud to recognize this dedicated group of suppliers and the work they do to serve our customers, advance our mission and propel the industry forward every day,” said Sonya Gafsi Oblisk, chief merchandising and marketing officer.

“From emerging local brands to long-standing partners beloved by our team members and customers, these suppliers are essential to our business and continue to raise the bar for excellence within the grocery space. Congratulations to this year’s all-stars on this well-deserved recognition.”

Whole Foods Market leaders, category experts and merchants select supplier winners across all departments and product categories, including private label, produce, specialty, seafood, meat, grocery, culinary and whole body. 

Suppliers are also nominated by Whole Foods Market’s Local Foragers, who are responsible for finding new and emerging local producers within the communities served by Whole Foods Market.
