We are the ingredients we source and we’re proud of every nut, spice and lentil that is placed in a Mindful Foods jar. Transparency forms the foundation of our sustainable sourcing values. If we’re not proud to share where our ingredients come from then we’re not working hard enough to live up to our values of health, environment and community.
We’re on a journey to being the most sustainable business we can but with so many factors at play, we have to make trade-offs in sourcing ingredients. We don’t source each of our ingredients from the picture-perfect, ideal instance of a farm. While we work on becoming 100% sustainable in our ingredient sourcing we acknowledge that that’s okay. We want to let you, our mindful community, know that when you make a purchase of Mindful Foods, the ingredients have been carefully selected. We promise to be fully transparent in all the decisions we make on our labelling, in stores and through our digital footprint.
These are the Non-Negotiable Values you’ll see on our labels:
No insecticides, pesticides, or fungicides
Insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, collectively known as pesticides, are chemicals that are used in agricultural pest control. Pesticides that are sprayed on crops leave a residue that settles into the soil and can run off into waterways or leach into groundwater that settles into the soil, can run off into waterways, leach into groundwater, and even find it’s resting place in our bodies.. We do not support the use of these chemicals on our food.
Ethical treatment of workers
From the farms that our ingredients are grown on to the warehouse in Bangalow where we activate and package, we ensure that these environments are safe for all workers and consumers. And we ensure all workers receive their correct wages and entitlements.
