Organic Matters

We believe organic should be the norm, not the exception

Here’s the truth: Organic food is not just better for our health, it’s better for the environment, too. That’s why we’ve been 100% organic since we shipped our very first bottle of juice. We often wonder: why aren’t all plant-based products we share the shelf with organic, too?

It’s a rigorous—and ongoing—process to become certified organic, from sourcing the best organic ingredients to building an organic-compliant facility to meeting all the USDA standards. But because we want to make organic as accessible and delicious as possible, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Labels don’t lie

If you don’t see a certified organic icon the label, a product isn’t organic. Forager Project tip: if you see non-GMO on the label, it doesn’t mean the product is organic, but anything with a certified organic label is non-GMO—like us!

 

Organic Food 101

There’s a lot of confusion about what organic really means when it comes to food. Here’s a quick cheat sheet of what that little label on all of our products stands for.

  • GMOs
  • Synthetic pesticides
  • Irradiated ingredients
  • Artificial preservatives
  • Artificial colors or flavors

  • Reduced chemical exposure
  • Richer in nutrients
  • Healthier rivers and lakes
  • Healthier soil and decreased erosion
  • Increased species biodiversity
