Top 10 REAL organic companies to put your trust in.
The health food market has never been more confusing. As more and more people choose to go organic, the big mass produced food companies are feeling left out.
But this has had some dangerous consequences, more than even companies who have little interest in ‘organic’ food are pretending that they do, mudding the waters of the food market.
Not only are the big food chains altering their products and their branding in order to dupe consumers into buying what they believe is ‘healthy’ food (when it actually isn’t) and worse still, they are buying out small organic companies for amounts of money that they can’t refuse, leaving consumers believing that they are giving their money to small independent companies when they are in fact handing over their cash to big multinational conglomerates.
The following 10 companies you can be sure are 100% organic.
1. Nature’s Path
An independent company since 1985, they produce breakfast products lie cereals, waffles and snack bars. Other ‘organic’ breakfast brands such as Kashi and Cascadian Farm were bought out by Kellogg’s and General Mills.
2. Lundberg Farms
This company has been offered – and refused – to be bought out several times. They produce rice products and gluten free chips.
“You’re a cynic if you say only small companies can … have values, aren’t you?” “Somehow you have to believe that size doesn’t matter”
3. Pacific Natural Foods
Based in Oregon, they produce soups, broths, nut milks and other healthy foods. They are one of the only 100% organic soup brands you will find on supermarket shelves.
4. Uncle Matt’s
One of the only 100% organic and natural juice brands, many others use concentrate and other preservatives in their products, despite the packaging suggesting otherwise.
5. Dr. Bronner’s
This brand has spoken publicly against the non-transparent packaging for organic food.
CEO David Bronner said:
“If we don’t win the right to label and enable people to choose non-GMO,” “then everything is going to be GMO.”
6. Traditional Medicinals
Traditional Medicinals are one of the only producers of all natural teas. While the herbal tea market is full of products claiming that they are natural, many other include chemicals, or come from questionable sources, such as Tazo, who are actually owned by Starbucks.
7. Amy’s Kitchen
Amy’s Kitchen is now one of the most well known organic companies, who have stayed as just that, even despite a huge growth in size. They specialize in natural, frozen pizzas, mac n’ cheese and soups.
8. Frontier Natural Products
Producers of Simply Organic spices and Aura Cacia essential oils, this company specializes in herbs and spices that are all natural and the best quality on the market.
9. Frey Wines
Organic wines are often hard to come by, as chemical pesticides seems to get on every crop growing, even grapes labelled as ‘organic’, but not Frey’s wines. Their grapes are grown in “extensive organic gardens” and their wines have won awards.
10. Equal Exchange
Not only are Equal Exchange products all natural, and have an extensive range of quality products they are all 100% fair trade.
