Nature’s Path Earns Organic Commitment Award at Whole Foods Market 2018 Supplier Awards

Company recognized for its commitment to bringing high quality organic products to market

Richmond, British Columbia (April 12, 2019) Organic breakfast and snack food company Nature’s Path was honored by Whole Foods Market with the Organic Commitment Award at the company’s 2018 Supplier Awards ceremony in Austin, Texas. The annual awards recognize suppliers that embody Whole Foods Market’s mission and values through a proven commitment to quality, environmental stewardship, organic integrity, innovation, and partnership.

“We are delighted to be recognized by our good friends at Whole Foods Market for our unwavering commitment to the planet and people’s health,” said Arran Stephens, CEO and Co-Founder of Nature’s Path. “As pioneers of the organic movement, organic integrity, environmental activism and so much more have been rooted in our company’s beliefs since our humble beginnings more than 30 years ago.”

“I’m proud that as an organic food company we have remained independent – this has enabled us to stay true to our values and transparent with our consumers,” continued Stephens. “For more than three decades we have played a leadership role in the North American organic food movement, tirelessly advocating for organic and regenerative farming methods.”

Nature’s Path was chosen for its unparalleled commitment to bringing high quality organic products – from cereal to granola and oatmeal –  to market, rooted in its mission to “leave the earth better than we found it.” Considered “pioneers of the organic movement” and a Whole Foods Market partner for more than 30 years, Nature’s Path continues to expand into new product categories without sacrificing quality and dedication to organic standards.

Nature’s Path was one of 28 suppliers recognized this year. The honorees were selected by Whole Foods Market category experts and buyers who work closely with suppliers on a daily basis.
