Natural Grocers polls customers on favorite organic produce, products

Launched in 2018, the Natural Grocers brand now has more than 750 premium products – but which are the most popular?

Natural Grocers’ “Best of the Best” customer survey ran in September, with respondents answering five questions to rank their most beloved Natural Grocers Brand products.

“Because we know our customers love our 100% organic produce department – we also asked them to weigh in on their favorite organic fruit or veggie,” the company wrote in a news release. “Before we share the winners, we wanted to let you know that Natural Grocers Brand products reflect our values – supporting small farmers, family businesses and environmental stewardship; values that have been defining the company’s mission since 1955, never compromising quality for the easy way through.”

The company’s guidelines do not permit hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives, according to the news release.

Without further ado, the results for Natural Grocers’ first annual “Best of the Best” survey are:
