About Us

Functional foods for a life lived in sync

Our Brand Promises

These five brand promises are what we as a company hold most dear. They’re what makes us, us.

These promises are reflected in every product we make, every article or recipe we write, and every communication we have with you.

1. Always Plant Based

We believe that, as a general principle, plant based foods are cleaner, more nutritious and have a lower ethical and ecological impact. Good for us, good for the animals, good for the future of our spaceship.

2. Minimal Ecological Impact

From the ingredients we use (100% plant-based, 95+% organic) to the packaging our products come in (low-waste, minimal plastic) to the materials we use to pack the boxes that arrive to your door (all compostable!)...we scrutinize every step of our operations to minimize energy usage and waste.

3. Organic Wherever Possible

Organic certification almost always means a cleaner and more nutritious product. Not every ingredient we use is available organic certified (yet), so we source organic whenever available (currently 95+% of our ingredients), and work with producers to develop organic supply chains when not.

4. Clean At Every Level

Humanity has sadly created a planet and industrial food system saturated with contaminants of every variety. To counter this, all of our products go through multiple steps of rigorous 3rd party testing to ensure purity, and our packaging was designed from the ground up to make sure it arrives to you that way.

5. Respect for the Wisdom of Nature

We design our products using modern know-how to amplify the benefits that whole plants have provided humanity for 1000s of years. We call this design ethos Naturally Innovative Nutrition. The whole-plant, full-spectrum extracts you find in many of our products are one example of this.
