The following core values help direct our business decisions.
Wellness of the individual – We believe in providing healthy choices for people. Organic & natural are a focus. There are many products on the market today that denote a healthy image but contain questionable ingredients. We try our best to balance providing people with products that they want to have access to, with having a standard of what does not belong in a health food store. We will not stock products with artificial flavours, sweeteners, colours, or hydrogenated oils.
Wellness of the community – Healthyway is a part of the community. We are a family run, locally owned business. The culture, economy and health of our community are of interest to us. We host several event days each year with proceeds going to charitable organizations in our community such as: Campbell River Food Bank, Salvation Army Soup Kitchen, Campbell River Women’s Centre, Greenway’s Land Trust, and Kidstart. We also support local sporting opportunities by providing healthy snacks for Merville 15 km, Bike to Work Week, and Cryderman’s Running Clinic.
Wellness of the planet – We are all connected in that we share the environmental issues of our earth. The organic movement is deeply rooted in a concern for Mother Nature. The use of herbicides and pesticides is a major polluter of watersheds and soil. Choosing organic, or better yet, choosing “local” organic reduces our impact on this earth. At Healthyway we also practice the small things that make a difference. We compost our produce waste, we recycle whatever we can, and we choose to not provide plastic shopping bags in our store.
