Nutty for Nature was born out of a desire to bring you simple and premium-quality organic foods while respecting local communities and minimizing our footprint. So we set out on a journey of discovery.
We spent two years researching how certain foods were produced in Brazil. We wanted to intimately understand every point of the supply chain and how each step affected the environment and the livelihood of the people involved in it. This process entailed countless hours of deep study, travels throughout this verdant South American country, and passionate interviews with several suppliers and vendors. The result of this exploration was a short list of food products and suppliers who share our philosophy and sincere care for the health of our planet and its communities.
We humbly invite you to learn more about our philosophy, our products, and our commitment to environmental and social justice.
Why Should You Go Nutty?
1. Premium quality with minimal processing
2. Environmental respect
We also avoid the use of plastic materials whenever and wherever we can. Plastic is composed of major toxic pollutants and is not biodegradable. It is also not as easy to recycle as glass. That is why we use glass jars for our coconut oil. This option is more expensive but the right thing to do.
3. Care for local communities
We also believe in education and collaboration. We partner with suppliers who are willing to give back to their respective communities any way they can. A case in point is a cacao farmer who does volunteer work by teaching other farmers in the region how to best preserve the original vegetation of the Mata Atlântica on their farms.
