At our July meeting, Jenny Brown from Whole Foods came and explained the details of their loan program. It is available to farmers as well as small food businesses. Here are the facts:

  • It is a nonexclusive loan, which means you can sell your product to other retailers in addition to Whole Foods.
  • Maximum loan of $100K
  • 5-12% interest rate
  • $65 processing fee covers the credit check and UCC filing
  • Must be used for capital expenditures and not operational expenses
  • Businesses are using the loan to get their products into Whole Foods
  • Takes 1-3 months to get approval

If you’d like to ask Jenny a specific question, feel free to email or call her anytime at 512.542.0895. Lisa Gargas is the local Whole Foods Forager for the Southwest Region.
