Food Philosophy

Yes, we admit it... we're a company that loves food. We love learning about food, cooking food, talking about food, and especially eating and sharing food.

Good food provides health, joy, and energy, and is a delight to the senses. And food, made right, can make the world a better place.

That's why we use organic ingredients in all our products. Food grown organically - without the use of toxic pesticides or synthetic chemicals - is better for the planet, the body and the soul. And all our food is free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup.

We recognize that food matters to our families, our communities, and our planet - as our food choiced affect the physical, social, and environment fabric of our lives.
