We’re not in the business of making shareholders happy. In fact, we don’t have shareholders. We’re in the business of cooking delicious, organic vegetarian meals for everyone.
Goodness is our guiding principle.
We choose what’s best for our customers, our farmers, our employees and our planet. It’s a tall order, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We were organic before it was a national certification. So when the U.S. Department of Agriculture decided to create standards for organic, they looked to us for guidance. Together with other industry leaders, we helped pioneer the organic food industry and, more importantly, we helped make organic food available to more people.
All of our dishes are non-GMO and we’re a proud supporter of GMO labeling initiatives. Because we believe that people have a right to know what they put in their bodies. We were also the first to market with non-BPA-lined cans, and we’re happy to see many other food companies following our lead.
Our commitment to organic ensures that farmers aren’t exposed to harmful chemicals and pesticides. We've even worked with farmers to make sure that everyone working in the fields is ergonomically fit to maximize comfort.
When we learned that many of our Spanish-speaking employees weren’t using their health insurance to visit doctors because of language barriers and because they didn’t want to take time off from work, we built on-site Health Centers staffed with bilingual doctors to ensure that all of our employees and their families are getting the proper care they need.
We’ve earned a reputation among farmers for being too picky and overly demanding. This is something we’re proud of. Because we don’t manufacture food, we cook it with love. And we believe that if we care about everything we do and everyone we cook for, then you’ll be able to taste the love.
Our goal is to do things the right way. Right by our customers. Right by our farmers. Right by our family of employees. And right by our Earth. The right way isn’t always the smart way or the easy way, but it’s the only way we’re interested in.
