About Oryana Natural Food Market
One bottom line isn’t good enough for us – we decided to invest in four.
Being a locally-owned cooperative grocer is complicated, in the best way. Oryana has worked for over 40 years to achieve a quadruple bottom line: People, Planet, Purpose and lastly, Profit. Profit is good, as it allows us to ‘do more Good,’ (you can read our latest Annual Report to see what we’ve been up to) but we also strive to make business decisions that positively impact the people we live with and serve, the planet we co-exist on and the purpose of our founding fathers and mothers. You can read about our guiding principles below.
The purpose of Oryana is to provide high-quality food produced in ecologically sound ways at fair value to owners and the community. Oryana owners and staff are committed to enhancing their community through the practice of cooperative economics and education about the relationship of food to health.
