Because we care about making the highest quality snacks we possibly can while having a positive impact on the world, we carefully source all of our ingredients from companies we trust and respect—companies who are doing great work in the world.
Here’s a list of our partners we are so proud to work with:
“Golden Organics has been in business for nearly 25 years. The owner David Rickard…found Golden Organics in 2004 in response to the large consolidation in the industry, with the intention of providing products with a higher standard and catering to our customers needs. We are proud of the many relationships we have built with local companies. We work with over 100 small businesses, including restaurant, bakeries, scratch kitchens, food stands, and many larger manufacturers. With over 40 years of experience in the industry we strive to source the best ingredients from reputable sources. Our products consist of single-item ingredients that are unprocessed with no additives.”
Mountain Rose Herbs
“From product quality and sustainable packaging, to fair trade practices and watershed conservation, we take pride in doing business right. Our core belief that people, plants, and planet are more important than profit guides everything we do.”
“Encha is an exclusively-organic matcha brand. We literally practice “farm to cup” to ensure quality and safety, reduce trading layers, and support everyone in the community to have his/her perfect cup of organic matcha. Encha Works Directly with the Farm for Quality Assurance
After Encha Founder (Dr. Li Gong) discovered an excellent organic matcha farm in Uji, Kyoto, Japan, we work directly with the farm. We have the visibility into the entire process, from growing to grinding, in matcha farming. Once Encha matcha is ground and seal-packaged in the farm, it doesn’t get opened again until you open it to enjoy its health nutrients and natural organic flavor. Encha only offers pure and organic matcha powder from 1st and 2nd harvests. No additives, no preservatives.
Lochhead Vanilla Company
“Lochhead Mfg. Company (“LMCO”) is committed to corporate social responsibility and promoting sustainable farming practices. Sustainability and social responsibility are important in making sure that we have and will continue to have the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment. LMCO purchases the highest quality conventional and certified organic vanilla beans from family farmers and collectors in Madagascar and other growing regions. Because high quality beans require more time on the vine and better overall growing conditions in terms of soil retention, sunlight and drainage, purchasing high quality beans encourages the family farmers to care for the small plots of land with a long term vision that is sustainable over the long haul. Many farmers and collectors that supply our vanilla beans have been cultivating vanilla vines for generations within their families—illustrating the sustainability of their farming practices.”
