Bringing healthy, affordable food to an area near you
When we say that BioFit Performance is bringing the best in all the industry we mean it! For that reason, I am excited to announce that we have teamed up with Sprouts farmers market to help all of our members with their nutritional and health goals.
Now, why would a strength conditioning facility and a grocery store team up? Well you see we have more in common than you may think, we care about our community and most importantly our health. Health, in today’s fast-paced, microwave world can be difficult. Making the right choice for what food is right for you and your family can sometimes be costly and possibly difficult to find. In fact, how do you even know where your food comes from or that it is organic? What does organic even mean?
The knowledgeable, experienced team members at Sprouts Farmers Market understand the importance that you place on your family’s food sources and are mindful of the costs of providing it to you at an affordable price. They can help you understand where the food that they offer comes from as well as the health benefits of eating organically grown and fed food.
When you stop by any of the 300 stores across the United States, you will walk into a welcoming environment and will be greeted by not simply employees of the company, but people as concerned about your meal and health choices as you are. The newest location in Oviedo, FL will be holding its Grand Opening Event on June 19, and we welcome you to join us to see what all of the talk is about.
Sprouts Farmers Market is not simply another hipster health food store or specialty food market. With a very strong emphasis on organic, you will find natural products, derived from sustainable sources throughout the store. The guiding principle behind the store is not only to provide you the consumer with healthy products at affordable prices. It is also community driven to ensure that everyone has access to healthy food, it supports local farmers and producers and ensures that local employees are adequately compensated.
Sprouts encourage its suppliers to follow its code of conduct of ethical purchasing, product traceability and fair treatment of people and animals. It believes in the concept of “Good Food. Good People”. In other words, good food comes from good people. With this mantra, Sprouts only utilizes suppliers who subscribe to and adopt the same ethical and sustainable practices that promote the well-being of all resources.
