A couple weeks ago Whole Foods launched a new way of classifying produce in stores.

The new labeling, which they call "Responsibly Grown," rates produce on a scale of "Good, Better, Best" based on certain criteria.

The rating system takes into account many factors, including things like GMO transparency, environmental impact with pesticides, and soil health. You can see the reasoning behind this new system in the short informative video Whole Foods currently has on its site below.
