Whole Foods Case Study For week three’s paper, Team A will be conducting a case study on Whole Foods Market. Whole Foods is a large natural and organic supermarket store. This case study we will provide an analysis of how the impact of internal and external environment affect Whole Foods, provide an analysis of Whole Foods mission statement, how strategic management is helping Whole Foods grow, and provide a SWOTT analysis. Internal Environment Analysis Strengths: Whole Foods vision shows company pride in the products that Whole Foods sell. “Whole Foods Market’s vision of a sustainable future means our children and grandchildren will be living in a world that values human creativity, diversity, and individual choice. Businesses will harness human and material resources without devaluing the integrity of the individual or the planet’s ecosystems. Companies, governments, and institutions will be held accountable for their actions. People will better understand that all actions have repercussions and that planning and foresight coupled with hard work and flexibility can overcome almost any problem encountered. It will be a world that values education and a free exchange of ideas by an informed citizenry; where people are encouraged to discover, nurture, and share their life’s passions.” Whole Foods has diversified with companies such as Allegro Coffee Company, which had been in business for twenty years before purchased by Whole Foods. Pigeon Cove Seafood Processing, which had been in business for 11 years prior to being purchased by Whole Foods and Whole Foods also has eight distribution centers, seven regional bake houses and four commissaries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
