February 27, 2020, Abbotsford, B.C. – With consumer demand for transparent and clean products continuing to rise, One Degree Organic Foods has announced the release of eight new products which are certified as glyphosate-residue-free, and display the BioChecked Non-Glyphosate Certified Seal that will be unveiled at Natural Products Expo West 2020.
Each product lives up to a clean-ingredient guarantee to be organic, non-GMO, glyphosate-free and to never contain anything artificial – a rarity in the cereal and granola aisle.
The products include:
One Degree Organics will be sampling the new product innovations from March 3 to 7 at Natural Products Expo West 2020 in Anaheim, Calif., at Booth #1960.
One Degree is also announcing a new supplier – IBIS Rice – for all its rice-based products. The priority was to find a dryland rice with naturally low levels of arsenic in the groundwater and soil and the search took One Degree to the northern plains of Cambodia, which offers a pristine growing environment for the rice. The organic rice does not use irrigation and relies solely on rainfall for its growth and development.
“One of our favourite things about IBIS Rice is that, in addition to providing us with rice that meets our high-standards by using environmentally friendly farming methods, they are protecting 500,000 hectares of precious forest and wetlands, conserving more than 50 endangered animal species and increasing the incomes of 1,000 rice-farming families,” says One Degree co-founder Stan Smith. “When we say we know our farmers and there is just ‘one degree of separation,’ we mean it. Our name echoes our commitment to total food transparency.
“Transparency is at the heart of everything we do at One Degree. We’re excited to be expanding our product lines and continue to give our customers the ability to meet the farmers behind each ingredient. The new products were developed with evolving consumer preferences in mind, from new formats to bold flavours, and we can’t wait for everyone to get a taste.”
One Degree Organics is family-founded and family-run by passionate organic food advocates with a deep respect for sustainable farming and clean, nourishing foods.
