What’s the difference between 'sustainable', 'organic' and 'clean'?
‘Sustainable’ farmers also maintain the health of the water, land, and soil via farming methods. Transportation, packaging, and the overall environmental impact are also considered.
‘Clean’ food has not been processed or altered from its natural state. It contains no added chemicals, sugars or fats.
Whether certified organic or not, all of our farmers use sustainable farming methods to produce clean food. For our farmers, sustainability is not a trend. This is their lifestyle, their belief, and their passion. It is why we choose to support them.
What does 'no chemicals' mean?
Organic and sustainable farms do use naturally occurring chemicals such as elemental sulphur to benefit their crops. If ever a questionable substance is used, we will disclose it to you.
We do our best to source food in it’s purest form, which means there are no artificial preservatives, no additives, no artificial colours, flavours, or artificial sweeteners.
