We are in the middle of a food revolution. Right before our eyes, a new food system is growing from the ground up, and as consumers we have a large impact on what form it takes. The future of food is not as dark as you might have imagined.

My guest on this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy is Walter Robb, former CEO of Whole Foods Market, who has a long and varied entrepreneurial history ranging from natural food retailer to farmer to consultant. Walter is a mentor and advisor to the next generation of American food companies and he is dedicated to transforming our food system.

Dr. Hyman is an 11-time New York Times bestselling author, family physician and international leader in the field of Functional Medicine. His podcast, The Doctor's Farmacy, is a place for deep conversations about the critical issues of our time in the space of health, wellness, food and politics. New episodes are released every Wednesday here on YouTube, and wherever you listen to podcasts.

6 Comments on The Future of Food is Better Than We Thought with Walter Robb

  1. Great interview. American Health Corps — great idea!

  2. Inspiring!

  3. Definitely a great interview.
    John Mackey, co-founder and I believe current CEO of Whole Foods has written a great book “The Whole Foods Diet”. I have the audiobook version. I highly recommend it for anyone wondering what the heck should they eat.

  4. We were so excited when a Whole Foods store came to our city. We soon called it Half Foods. Why? A large portion of the store is decicated to liquor, fast food, a restaurant and a Winnebago, and this was before Amazon bought them. I shop at Erewhon and Lassons now. Why? Because every piece of produce is organic. Not so at WF. WF has more conventional than organic produce. Come on- you have Whole in your name and it isn’t all organic! If I wanted conventional produce, I would go to Vons, Ralphs, etc and pay a munch cheaper price.

  5. Wouldn’t it be great to provide the otherwise wasted healthy food to stores that can be directed to SNAP recipients instead of sending it to the landfill? Instead of loading up on a cart full of cheese puffs and other processed food, these products could be going to the people who really need a healthy alternative to the junk food available in most grocery stores.
