Whole Foods Gives Olympia Provisions a $100,000 Boost

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Whole Foods Market has given Olympia Provisions a boost in kicking up production capacity and quality with the loan of $100,000.

Denise Breyley, Local Forager-Pacific Northwest & Western Canada, Whole Foods Market“The team at Olympia Provisions is passionate about creating and sharing charcuterie that stays true to an old world technique that is rarely seen in America,” said Denise Breyley, Whole Foods Market’s Local Forager in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada, according to the Portland Business Journal. “This loan will be another chapter in the company’s incredible success story and I’m so excited to see what comes from this.”

Elias Cairo, Founder & Co-Owner, Olympia ProvisionsThe company said that the move will significantly help growth, with Elias Cairo, one of the Founders and Co-Owners of Olympia Provisions, saying, “As we continue to grow our business, it’s important to align ourselves with partners like Whole Foods Market who share our values. For years... the Whole Foods Market team (has) shown us that they believe in what we’re doing. This loan helps us stay true to our technique and our decision to use only quality natural ingredients, and still be able to scale our operations.”

The $100,000 low-interest loan is through the retailer’s Local Producer Loan Program, a service looking to help local growers, producers, and food artisans.

Olympia said that the loan will help to purchase and install a new blast chiller, helping to significantly increase production capacity and improve product quality.

The tenth Oregon-based food producer to receive such a grant from Whole Foods, the retailer presented a large check to the charcuterie company at its Eugene store last week.

According to the business journal, Oregon companies have received more than $525,000 through the program to date.
