“When Whole Foods Market joined the Amazon family, we set out to make healthy and organic food more accessible. Over the last year, we’ve been working together tirelessly to pass on savings to customers,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer.
Whole Foods Market prohibits over 100 preservatives, flavors, colors and other ingredients, commonly found in food that includes high-fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats. The grocery store never sells products using antibiotics of added hormones.
The company is continuing efforts to shake the image of being an expensive grocery destination.

“Whole Foods Market continues to maintain the high quality standards that we’ve championed for nearly 40 years and, with Amazon, we will lower more prices in the future, building on the positive momentum from previous price investments,” said John Mackey, Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO. “The standards for how our products are sourced, grown and produced are powerful and set Whole Foods Market apart from the competition.”
There are Whole Foods Market stores on Miamisburg Centerville Road in Dayton, Deerfield Boulevard in Mason and others in Cincinnati and Columbus.
