LESSEREVIL RECEIVES TOP HONOR FOR QUALITY AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET 2020 SUPPLIER AWARDS
AWARDED FOR ITS COMMITMENT TO QUALITY ACROSS ALL CATEGORIES FOR PREMIUM INGREDIENTS AND PRODUCTION INNOVATION
DANBURY, CT – Feb. 26, 2020
LesserEvil was recently honored by Whole Foods Market with the ‘Raising the Bar for Quality’ award spanning all merchandise categories at the leading natural foods retailer’s 2020 Supplier Awards ceremony in Austin, Texas. The annual awards recognize suppliers that embody Whole Foods Market’s mission and core values through a commitment to quality, environmental stewardship, organic integrity, innovation, purpose and partnership.
“We are grateful for and humbled by this national award from our partners at Whole Foods Market; our laser-focus on quality is at the very core of our mission as a company,” said Charles Coristine, LesserEvil president and CEO. “Not only does Whole Foods challenge us to push the boundaries of innovation and look to us for category leadership in meeting consumers’ ever-shifting demands, they inspire us to raise the bar throughout our supply chain and production methods to deliver on our deep commitment to transparency and sustainability.”
The vertically integrated snack company was chosen for its thoughtful selection of ingredients, not commonly found in the snacking aisle, such as organic cassava flour, organic sweet potato flour, certified humane egg white powder, and organic avocado oil. LesserEvil’s innovative production methods were also recognized for bringing delicious everyday items and exclusive seasonal products to market, from air-popped Organic Popcorn to Grain Free Paleo Puffs and Egg White Curls. A complete transition to biodegradable NEO packaging has further exemplified LesserEvil’s commitment towards fostering higher, more sustainable standards for packaged goods.
LesserEvil was one of only 32 world-class suppliers recognized this year. The honorees were selected by Whole Foods Market global and regional leadership, category experts and buyers who work closely with suppliers on a daily basis.
