Whole Foods CEO John Mackey Dishes on Organics, Consolidation, Unions
Whole Foods founder and CEO John Mackey generates schizoid reactions in the enviro community. He is hailed for showing that organic food can be the basis for a large, thriving business and for formulating new, strict animal-treatment standards, but decried for pushing out small, local farmers and vendors, opposing unions, and not voting for John Kerry or Ralph Nader (gasp!). He's a proud libertarian who caps his own salary and offers rare autonomy and benefits to his employees. Mackey chats with Grist Magazine.
