We aim to help improve the world in which we live. In everything we do, we are committed to nurturing the mind, body and spirit for a better life.
At Earth’s Own Food Company, we are always looking for ways to reduce our footprint. One of the most impactful changes we have made is to establish production facilities in both Eastern and Western Canada. This minimizes the impact shipping has on the environment and ensures that you receive the freshest product available.
Making our plants as efficient as possible is another way we strive to be environmentally responsible. We currently employ a system by which the solid waste from our extraction process is returned to the earth as compost or fertilizer used in agriculture. We also participate in BC Hydro’s Power Smart Partners Industrial Program at our British Columbia facility, which enables us to maximize our energy use reduction.
In early 2010 we audited our facilities for greenhouse gas emissions. Upon completion of the audit we implemented specific reduction strategies and employee education programs which resulted in becoming a Climate Smart certified company.
We have taken considerable steps to seek out packaging partners who share our commitment to the environment. Tetra Pak, the maker of our shelf stable and chilled gable packaging, has introduced initiatives that have resulted in an 18% reduction in paperboard weight and a significant reduction of plastic in the inner layer of the package.
Our Commitment to sustainability also extends to the ingredients we use. Though we could save money by sourcing ingredients from outside North America, we believe in using only the best wholesome North American grown ingredients wherever possible. Again the environmental impact of shipping over long distances is reduced and we all benefit from the support we provide to those that adhere to safer farming practices.
At Earth's Own Food Company, we invest in local and national programs that contribute to well-being. Whether it is participating in national health initiatives and education programs or donating to Food Banks, we believe in having a positive impact in our community. Most recently we have lent our support to:
The Heart & Stroke Foundation
The Vancouver Food Bank
The Surrey Food Bank
Second Harvest Toronto
Daily Bread Toronto
