The Taste of Nature Story
Creating Simple, Great Tasting Bars That Leave A Legacy. Taste of Nature was founded on this basic principle: to work together as a family to create a food company that makes a simple, great tasting product that would give back to the world more than it took.
Their Taste of Nature bars are made from the highest quality organic ingredients, supplied through a network of family farms and businesses. Our bars are made in our facility in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Even though it is a fully accredited British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Good Manufacturing practices (GMP) facility with the most stringent international food standards, they use minimal processing to keep the product nutrient dense.
People have to enjoy the food they eat, so they work hard to make bars that taste delicious. To produce the freshest, most nutritious food possible, they produce the bars more frequently in smaller quantities, keep the inventory low, and get the product into stores quickly.
Foods that are grown organically are better for people, for the farmers, and for the plants, animals and environment as a whole. It is widely recognized that organic foods are higher in nutrient content. Their bars are a source of energy, fibre, protein, essential fatty acids, omega 3 fatty acids, and vitamins, minerals and trace elements that occur naturally in organic foods.
They know that it’s possible to provide healthy food while leaving a zero-carbon foot print, and we work every day to make that a reality. They use green business practices in our manufacturing, packaging and shipping. They currently source Bullfrog green power for processing our products. They recycle food waste to farms for use as animal feed. Everything is done with the environment in mind. It is their modest but meaningful contribution to building a better and healthier future for everyone.
Taste of Nature gives back too. They donate their bars to the Salvation Army and Second Harvest, and participate in events that promote environmental and ecological awareness. They just started an initiative with Trees Canada to plant trees in wilderness areas and edible trees in urban areas. By giving back they are adding to their community in ways that numbers can’t measure.
Taste of Nature combines the need to feed people real food with the need to preserve nature. The more they give away, the more they will receive. Taste of Nature is more about why they are making this food than the food itself.
