We’re always looking for the best ingredients. Sometimes it means more work, but at the end of the day (or many days) we have a product we can firmly stand behind. Most of our year is spent traveling, visiting farms, inspecting factories and establishing partnerships with farmers all over the world. You can't cut corners, pinch pennies or take easy routes to get the best ingredients, so we don't.
SCROLL TO LEARN MORE
It would be an understatement to say we do a lot of research when we're looking for a new product. Finding that place in the world where the absolute best product comes from takes time, finding farms in those ever-so-special places takes even more time. We compare sources, growing environments, soils, plant origin and even farming techniques before selecting potential candidates.
After we've done the preliminary research, we make sure each farm meets standards that vary from product to product. Some of these include USDA Organic, NON GMO, Kosher and Gluten Free. (Sometimes the product isn't "technically" any of these things, but is so good and outstanding that we work with the farmers to get them there.) If the product meets our standards, we pack our bags, ready our passports and begin our journey.
We take every step along the way very seriously, but this one gets special attention. Whether we've been working with a source for years or weeks, we review the processes every time we visit and we do it right next to the individuals who work on them. Walking through each process presents us with unique opportunities to connect with our supplier, inspect product quality, review farming techniques and discuss potential obstacles that wouldn't otherwise be noticed.
All the hard work for a product is done where it originiated from but we like to do a little more after we've received it from those special places in the world. Each and every product that is recieved by our warehouse is independently sent to be tested. There are standard and unique tests performed for each product and only after passing are they packed and shipped.
Every ingredient is the result of years of work, from the people who care for the growing plants to the people who ship them from our warehouse. It's reassuring knowing that we've been involved with every stage of the process and exciting knowing our products are in your home. We're proud of our products, we stand behind them and we know you'll love them as much as we do.
