Construction is underway on a Whole Foods Market in Shreveport. The grocer wants to line the shelves with more local products to make it unique. The Austin, Texas-based upscale grocery chain is holding a class for Louisiana vendors on Friday, Feb. 27, in Shreveport.
The program will go in-depth on quality standards, food safety, packaging and regulatory requirements, according to Kelly Landrieu, a Whole Foods local forager. (Yes, that is her official title.) She says dozens of people have signed up for her class.
