Organic vs. Natural
While both "natural" and "organic" generally mean no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, "organic" guarantees that none of those are used, along with no artificial fertilizers, toxic pesticides, irradiation or GMOs. "Natural" claims are voluntary (if not meaningless), while "organic" claims are regulated and third party audited. Organic agriculture is regenerative, supports the environment and protects the family farm. Certified Organic refers to agricultural products that have been grown and processed according to strict uniform standards, verified annually by independent state or private organizations such as Quality Assurance International. The QAI seal is your guarantee that all organic ingredients used by Nature's Path have been third-party certified.
Nature's Path Manifesto
Nature’s Path lives for healthy, great-tasting organic foods. It’s why they get up in the morning. But Nature's Path is also a company that wants to do more than just sell breakfast foods. Nature's Path aspires to advance the cause of people and planet, along the path to sustainability. And Nature's Path likes to think they put their money where their mouth is. Or rather, where their heart is. Because growing organic, healthy foods in a sustainable way is Nature's Path's passion—the cornerstone of their family company. It’s where, and how, it all began.
But Nature's Path also knows that when it comes down to it—no matter what kind of a difference they want to make as a company, and no matter how much you share those values—if Nature's Path's food isn’t delicious and exciting, they’re not living up to their fullest potential.
Healthy foods don’t need to be boring and tasteless. Which is why Nature's Path spends their days and nights dreaming up new recipes, tracking down exotic new ingredients, and researching the latest (or most ancient) superfoods. Nature's Path knows you’ll be pretty impressed when you read their labels. But Nature's Path hopes you’ll be even more impressed when you take your first bite.
