Dairy Free Foods Made with Care
At Turtle Mountain, LLC they are keenly aware of how foods affect a person's well-being and quality of life. As they listen to the needs and desires of their customers, they have learned that the success of their products is as much about what they do not contain as it is about what they do contain. To this end, they use only the highest quality ingredients, and employ the most stringent testing, production, and packaging methods.
It is Turtle Mountain's policy to exclude all allergens from their products unless they are known constituents of an ingredient and the allergen is declared on the package. They use state of the art testing procedures with sensitivity to the allergen down to five parts per million (5 ppm). Their allergen program involves validating the cleanliness of the processing line, auditing the raw materials and testing the intermediates and finished products.
Co-packers are required to process their products using the same procedures that exclude allergens from entering the system and products that their company plants do. These procedures include all of the above and any combination of the following:
- Using specified ingredients from approved suppliers.
- Use of allergen excluding scheduling.
- Warehousing using methods that prevent cross contamination
They clean their processing plants using a 4-step process, utilizing the highest standards practiced in the industry. This process includes a hot water rinse, a caustic wash, a hot water rinse and finally a sanitizer rinse. To ensure that the all of the caustic wash is removed during the rinse phase the rinse water is tested.
None of the containers and lids that their products are packaged in contain Bisphenol-A (BPA's). They hold documentation from each of the manufacturers for their containers, bottles, cups and lids stating that they do not use this substance as a raw material. They also analytically test each packaging component randomly to verify that it is BPA free.
Dairy Free with A Conscience
They work with a host of non-profit organizations, schools, and community groups oriented toward making positive changes and contributions to the world at large. They sponsor and participate in events and donate to causes that align with their corporate values - which in case you haven't noticed don't include world domination or exhausting the limited resources of our planet. They're committed to making healthy dairy free foods and beverages that meet the dietary needs of a growing population of dairy alternative seekers, who tend to be active in areas of food and environmental activism just like they are.
The So Kind Culture
Their business philosophy is based on a firm commitment to treating everyone and everything - our environment, animals, each other, their partners, and their community - with unwavering respect. That commitment affects everything they do, including how they source ingredients, how they manufacture products, the impact they leave on the natural world, and the partnerships they form to keep pushing ourselves forward.
They've made some definite strides forward in accomplishing their sustainability goals, and they're pretty proud of that. However, they know better than to pat theirselves on the back just yet, as it's humbling to realize
how far they have to go.
The four pillars of their business philosophy - SO Passionate, SO Pure, SO Kind, and SO Delicious - are a simple way of boiling things down to the basics. They strive to live SO Kind every day they come to work, whether in the office or on the production floor. Here's a glimpse of their internal programs that touch on their commitment to their people and our environment:
Green Office Program
They've adopted an environmentally friendly purchasing program for all of their facilities, so they now use 100% recycled paper products, biodegradable cleaners and soaps, energy-efficient lighting, low-flow water fixtures, and rechargeable batteries, and they do their best to recycle wherever possible.
They're proud to be recognized for their efforts, as they were recently certified as a RE:think Business! The RE:think certification is awarded to businesses in Lane County, Oregon that are committed to reducing waste, conserving resources, and improving their environmental performance.
Alternative Commuting Program
They live, work, and play in the bike-friendly communities of Eugene and Springfield, Oregon, so they thought, why not make it easier for people to leave their cars at home? Their solution was to create the Alternative Commuting Program, which rewards their employees for taking alternative forms of transportation by collecting and redeeming points for each mile traveled, whether it's by bike, bus, or carpool. Points can then be redeemed for gift certificates at locally based, sustainable businesses in their community. They even have a "grant" program where employees can receive a $500 discount off bike gear to help get them started!
Green Home Upgrades
They believe even little things can add up to become big things over time. For example, did you know that just one compact fluorescent bulb can save over $40 in electricity over its lifetime compared to a standard incandescent, or that switching to water-saving showerheads can save about 2,300 of gallons of water a year? They make it easy for their team members to be lean and green by offering free upgrades for light bulbs and water-saving devices for their homes.
Volunteer Day Off
They recognize the responsibility of being a good corporate citizen in the local communities where they live, work, and play, so they've initiated a program where all team members can take one day of paid time off each year for volunteering at a charitable organization of their choice.
They're So Delicious
Turtle Mountain LLC, creators of the So Delicious Dairy Free brand, is a privately held natural foods company headquartered in Oregon's lush Willamette Valley. Since 1987, they specialize in the creation of all natural, dairy free products. Their products are carried in select grocery and natural food stores throughout the US, as well as Canada and Korea.
So Passionate. So Pure. So Kind. So Delicious.
Their business philosophy has been quite simple: they create the finest dairy free products on the market using the best all natural ingredients obtainable, while monitoring the quality of their processes through every step until the product reaches the hands of their customers. They believe that there are no better products available today than those which bear the Turtle Mountain logo.
Products That Deliver
Turtle Mountain produces a variety of all natural, dairy free frozen desserts, beverages, and cultured products. Their quality measures are world class, featuring an allergen prevention program that has set a new benchmark for the food industry. Check out their growing range of product offerings and explore the delicious possibilities.
The company began as a one-man operation by its founder and present CEO/President, Mark Brawerman. As a consumer of healthy food alternatives Mark saw a growing need for products that tasted like their dairy counterparts but contained no dairy ingredients. Mark began by developing a series of non-dairy frozen dessert recipes. These humble beginnings served as a foundation for what has become an industry leader in providing premium dairy free frozen desserts, beverages, creamers and cultured products.
Turning A Vision Into Reality
From the onset Mark's vision was to provide consumers with only the best tasting dairy free products that Mother Nature could provide. Since 1990 Turtle Mountain has evolved from a company specializing in dairy free frozen desserts to an organization that offers a complete portfolio of outstanding products that can be found throughout today's progressive supermarkets and natural food stores. No other company boasts as wide a range of frozen and refrigerated products, and many that are the market leaders in their respective category. They owe their success not only to Mark's vision but to a dedicated team of individuals who enthusiastically embrace the uncompromising goal of providing the best dairy-free products in the marketplace.
