Why Organic?

Snacks are an important part of a balanced diet, depending on the types of snack foods you choose.

However, the typical vending machine fare of potato chips and chocolate bars can do more harm than good for you and your body. Organic foods offer a healthy alternative with an assortment of choices and a wealth of benefits for both you and the planet.

  • Organically produced snacks contain higher levels of vitamins and nutrients than commercial foods.
  • Synthetic pesticides, preservatives, and other typical chemical substances found in commercial foods are not found in organic products. This decreases allergies, infections, and a number of serious diseases including cancer.
  • Toxic and synthetic chemical-free cultivation and processing are also better for the environment. Organic farming not only decreases land, air, and water pollution, it requires less water and energy while promoting healthy soil and encouraging wildlife.



Organic Snacks and Flavor

It's a common myth that organic food is bland and not the tastiest choice at mealtime. The truth is organically produced foods are typically juicier, fresher, and overall better tasting than their commercial counterparts.

Another misconception is that there aren't many choices available for organic and healthy snacks, especially on-the-go. The truth is today's organic food market has grown tremendously and the variety of convenience foods is incredible!

An organic apple or banana is usually the first snack that comes to mind when you think organic. Fresh fruits and vegetables are just the beginning of the selection. Dried fruit is quite popular and makes a savory addition to trail mix with organic peanuts. Traditional snacks like pretzels, cookies, and popcorn are also produced organically.

Those who prefer to sip their snacks, rather than eat them, will appreciate the wide range of organic juices, smoothies, and organic hot chocolate available. Organic chocolate is another luxury that has proven to be much healthier than commercial chocolate bars. You can even find organic mints and candies in an assortment of natural flavours.
