Largest supplier of organic foods to Whole Foods (35% of their business--locked up through 2020) and also supplies to regular grocery stores. This is a rapidly growing business which justifies the high P/E. Keep in mind they are a supplier, so growth is not just based on Whole Foods-type stores growing, it relies on conventional supermarkets expanding their selection, and consumers buying into the "organic" hype.

They have struck a long term deal with WFM, which will prove to be a serious money maker. More and more people are eating healthy these days. Organic food is no long just for hippies and yuppies, it's going mainstream. This is a rock solid buy and hold(for a very long time) company.

In my opinion the valuation of this company is a little high.
There are some issues with the use of cash flow the ratios are not the best of the industry.
I prefer tickets like SYY or SPTN .

It seems crazy, to me, that consumers don't mind growth hormones in their milk, and all the toxins that are taken for granted in non-organic commercial agriculture. Farmers (like my wife) say that the word Organic is a funny word because it's actually spelling out the very things we're all supposed to be doing with our food, and we have to certify it because people got greedy and farmers got lazy. Anyway, it's a growth industry (pardon the pun) in part because organic isn't a choice, really. In milk, in yogurt (in particular) it is the only option once you know the truth about growth hormones and make a purchasing decision for your own children.

Not only supplies items to Whole Foods, but other markets as well. As healthy eating becomes popular so will this stock.

all natural, organic, gluten free, no preservatives, no canola oil, ...This is what I have to hear from crazy hippie yoga instructors who drive off in their Hybrid SUV's all day when I hand free stuff out for WF's and other stores like it.. Might as well make some money off of it...

Health, its where its at. Have you noticed lately that the grocery store shelves are filled with products advertising how "clean" they are and how few additives they have. People want natural products.

This portfolio tracks the performance of good companies vs. evil companies.

Organics keep pesticides out of our food chain = Good.

Everyone thinks that because Whole Foods is failing that natural foods are on a down slide. The truth is that more and more people make the switch to naturals and organics every time there is a food scare. So why is Whole Foods failing? Because they are overpriced, and every one of the "conventional" grocers that were never competitors before are now carrying what they once had a monopoly on.
Where does everyone else get the product from? UNFI
The more Whole Foods declines, the more customers are switching over, and the more business UNFI gains.
