Whole Foods Market’s Local Producer Loan Program

Whole Food Market is providing up to $10 million annually in low-interest, long-term loans. Eligible products include agricultural crops, value-added food products, and other all-natural grocery items.

If you are considering applying for a loan, please remember that loan recipients must:
  • Meet Whole Foods Market's Quality Standards
  • Use funds for expansion (e.g., buy more animals or new equipment/infrastructure, expand crops), not operating expenses
  • Meet Whole Foods Market's Animal Compassion Standards (if meat or dairy producers)
  • Have a viable business plan and adequate cash flow to service debt.
