United Natural Foods is a name many food entrepreneurs are familiar with. As one of the largest wholesaler distributors of organic and natural food, they provide ingredients to food companies large and small around the country. Turns out that the food business for UNFI (as it’s often known for short) is so good these days that they’ve decided to focus solely on that are have divested their non-food products to L&R Distributors. More information with the complete financial writeup is here but it’s interesting to see that at every level the natural and organic markets are growing in leaps and bounds!
