Best Health Food
For the best prices and selection, shoppers head to Mana Foods. "We buy in volume and pass on every discount we get to the customers," said Theresa Thielk who helped brother Ed Thielk get the business started 26 years ago. A lot of credit for pricing and selection also goes to Purchasing Director and co-owner Sunette Fenn.
"We appreciate all the support in the community," said Sunette. "A lot of Paia people come here. They can get stuff cheaper."
Mana Foods employs over 100 people. "Most are full time," said Sunette. They need that many people to operate a vitamin room, produce department, bakery, deli & more.
In addition to vegan and vegetarian items, Mana Foods has a wide range of natural poultry, fish and beef, whole grains, and even natural cleaning products.
