About UNFI

UNFI is the leading U.S. independent national distributor of natural, organic, specialty foods and related products including: nutritional supplements, personal care items and organic produce. In addition to our world class distribution services, we also provide a wide range of innovative services for our customers and suppliers that foster mutual success and growth. These services include marketing and promotional tools, merchandising, category management and store support.

Why we carry products from UNFI

We’re pleased to work with UNFI for products we can’t find locally. Not all basic ingredients are made in Austin or, in many cases, in Texas. Baking soda, for instance, doesn’t come from here – nor does coconut oil. Also, some vendors who do make great products locally aren’t willing to sell their product in bulk and prefer to stick with packaging for a variety of reasons – demand and the cost of changing their process among them.

For these items, we were presented with a choice: find small, local vendors from all over the US to make individual orders and ship product from, or get products off the UNFI distribution truck that already drives down Manor Road every day. We decided that more cost and waste would be reduced if we bought from the truck that’s already on our street.

That being said, if some of the products we have to carry from out of state become available locally, in bulk, with pure ingredients in the future, we’ll be happy to start carrying them.
