United Natural Foods
United Natural Foods is a distributor of natural and certified organic food products. We receive organic juice, tea, pantry items (rice, peanut butter, flour, etc.), snacks, energy bars, and dairy products from United Natural.
We also receive Organic Bacon and Beef from Organic Prairie through United Natural Foods. Organic Prairie is an independent cooperative of organic family farms. All animals are raised humanely, are certified organic, are hormone and antibiotic free, and are raised on a natural vegetarian diet.
In addition to providing organic and natural foods, United Natural Foods pursues a variety of sustainability initiatives in order to reduce the footprint associated with their operations. Many of their distribution centers are LEED certified. They have: 3 LEED Gold certified facilities, 1 Silver, and 2 undergoing the certification process. In addition, in 2010 they pledged to reduce their carbon emissions by 5% over five years. In order to achieve this goal United Natural Foods has constructed large solar arrays on four of their facilities. They also are working to reduce waste, water, and energy use; use software to minimize driving during delivery routes; and have a hybrid vehicle incentive program for their employees.
