Integrity in All Business Dealings

Our supplier partners are our allies in serving the interests of our other stakeholders in bringing to market the safest highest quality products available. We treat them with respect, fairness and integrity at all times and expect the same in return. We seek supplier partnerships that share our concern for social responsibility and the environment.

Honesty and Communication

We are committed to honesty, timeliness and clarity in communicating with our suppliers and we expect the same in return.


We seek to create transparency from “farm to fork” with respect to production, planning, sourcing, ingredients, product safety and efficacy in order to bring to market the safest highest quality products available. We work with our supplier partners in eliminating all unnecessary production and distribution costs to help ensure the best possible price.


We partner with our suppliers to educate, inspire and communicate the outstanding quality and benefits of our products to promote a lifestyle of health, balance and well-being.


We foster supplier partnerships that enable us to remain at the forefront of the retail food industry, by creating new, unique and innovative products.
