Natural Grocers exclusively provides meat raised without the use of antibiotics, growth promoters, or feed containing animal by-products. Their pasture-based dairy standards ensure that no products from confinement dairies are on the shelves, providing healthier dairy products to consumers, a better lifestyle for the animals and a more ethical environmental impact. Since going bag-free at checkout in 2009, Natural Grocers is estimated to have saved over 100 million bags from landfills.
