Whole Foods Market is the world's #1 natural foods grocery store chain. The company operates more than 460 stores throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. Whole Foods stores emphasize perishable and prepared products, which account for about two-thirds of sales. Most of the food and other items the stores sell are free of pesticides, preservatives, sweeteners, and cruelty. Whole Foods offers some 4,400 items in four lines of private-label products (such as the premium Whole Foods line). Founded in Austin, Texas, in 1980, Whole Foods pioneered the supermarket concept in natural and organic foods retailing. In June 2017, Whole Foods agreed to be bought by Amazon.com for about $13.7 billion.
