Ordinary Vegan Podcast #9: An Interview With Sandy Gooch

“Sandy Gooch single handedly pioneered a natural foods revolution
for everyday people.”
~~~~Whole Foods CEO and co-founder John Mackey

Sandy Gooch was experiencing seizures and chest pains at too young of an age. Upon investigation, Sandy Gooch found that what she was eating was making her ill. She made an immediate change in her eating choices.  Little did she know, in her own quest for health she would pioneer the nation’s natural food movement. 

Sandy Gooch discusses her illness, her recovery and what it took to open the first Mrs. Gooch’s Natural Food Grocery Store in Los Angeles in 1976. 

She discusses how she revamped advertising and the grocery business by offering product knowledge.

She believed when you empower people with the knowledge needed to make an educated decision in their food choices, they will learn for themselves that natural foods is a natural choice. 

Sandy also shares her thoughts about food safety, Mrs. Gooch’s eventual merge with Whole Foods and what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

…and much more. I’m very excited for you to meet this inspiring woman, Sandy Gooch.
