Meet the little carton that could.
Preservatives and their packaging have never met. That’s because the packages Pacific uses allow even the most perishable foods to stay fresh and tasty without chemicals or preservatives. They also require no refrigeration, which saves on energy, too. Tetra Pak packaging requires fewer materials to create, to process and to ship. And in many places, it’s even recyclable. Open up a carton and taste the possibility.
In the waste game, their best score is a big fat zero.
Around here, the only good waste is no waste. At Pacific, they’ve made “Zero Waste” a long-term company goal. Ambitious? Certainly, but it’s not impossible. Every year they’re using less and repurposing more. 80% of their company waste is now recycled or repurposed. 100% of their food scraps are converted into animal feed or compost. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of okara, a soy by-product, are made into high-protein animal feed. Even their animals’ waste is converted into phosphorus irrigation and compost or transformed into bedding. While they’re not one to brag, they’re proud of their accomplishments. As they see it, the only way to move forward is to leave nothing behind.
Restoring the wetlands. Welcoming back old friends.
When their founder and his family first purchased farmland in the Willamette Valley, they didn’t just envision what the land might become, they recalled what it once was. On some of the properties were wetlands that had been buried or overrun with invasive species. Restoring the land to healthy, fertile farmland was an ambitious and costly endeavor. Many said it couldn’t be done. But by working closely with the Wetlands Conservancy, the wetlands in Deer Creek, Hedges Creek and Three Sisters have been reborn. Today, they filter water and offer a valuable habitat for birds and other wildlife. And if the land there is that healthy, imagine what the food they grow there is like.
Sustainable farming is something they’re passionate about so they try to lead with a kind hand. That means protecting their farmland, raising animals humanely and treating the people they work with fairly.
Never a rogue filbert shall this way pass.
Accountability is a lot to ask of a hazelnut (or any other nut for that matter). But at Pacific, their ingredients are held to some pretty high standards. Long before there were USDA Organic labels, they began tracing the origin of every natural and organic ingredient used in their foods.
Farm fresh thinking.
Knowing where their food comes from is important to them. The way plants are grown and how animals are treated affects the quality of the ingredients they use. By sourcing all their ingredients from farms they respect, they know they’re getting the best quality possible. Making food taste good is only half the equation. They’re here to make food they feel good about bringing into the world.
Taste nature's handiwork.
At Pacific, they believe in celebrating the natural goodness of food.That's why they use real, simple ingredients, and not too many of 'em. They verify the origin of every organic ingredient they use in their Certified to the Source program, then prepare everything for you using time-honored (AKA old school) cooking methods. They tend to ask, what would nature do? She's always had a way with food.
The smallest footprint leaves the biggest impact.
"What if" gets asked a lot 'round these parts. What if they operated more efficiently? What if they made less waste? What if they recycled more? They're constantly working to lessen their carbon footprint. They use packaging that requires no energy-intensive refrigeration. They've eliminated their trash compactor. They've changed the way they use energy. In 2010, they were even awarded the BEST award as one of Portland's sustainable leaders. But it's hardly about the glory. For them, they won't rest til they've left this world a better place. Really, their work has just begun.
