Right from the Beginning,

Gathering Place Trading Partners Only With the Best Farmers

We favour multi-generational family farms or cooperatives. We tour their farms, learning about how the product is grown, harvested, and preserved. We trust our farmers to bring you the highest quality, freshest and most ethically produced food in the world. Our business is founded on these values.

We Travel the World Looking for Farms and Farmers Who:

Grow Organic Ingredients

We hand-select farming partners who are certified organic and whose products are produced without genetic engineering of any kind.

    Use Fair Trade Practices

    Our farming partners put the Earth first, utilizing farming methods, such as hand-harvesting, that promote soil health and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

      Provide Equal Pay

      The farmers who grow our food are paid a living wage and women and men are paid equally.

        Give Back to Their Local Communities

        Our partners and suppliers around the world are committed to bettering the lives of the people who live in their home communities.

          Always Fresh

          By direct sourcing, our farmers and suppliers provide us the current year's harvest, resulting in the best tasting products.
