At our downtown Chicago based USDA organic we manufacture creatively and professionally in small batches, a carefully nurtured line of exquisite products that definitely are not like the processed food companies that manufacture most of what is most seen in commercial grocery store aisles.
Our products that feature health, wellness and natural beauty are dedicated to customers who seek unique and creative offerings.
They are unique because they challenge the buyer both with their combinations of flavors, scents, herbs, their health appeal, their multi use capability, simple, elegant packaging and their uniqueness.
There is in the marketplace an increasing awareness to ethics and sustainability. No other industry is as much affected by this consumer curiosity than the food and wellness industry.
It is our firm belief that smaller, eco-friendly and socially conscious manufacturers will find greater and easier acceptance by the American consumer for their products, especially if they are affordable as well!
We import ingredients from small and large, sustainable farms in the US and around the world, formulate our unique creations to produce the finished beauty, health and wellness goods, using local labor and locally produced sustainable packaging right here in Chicago.
We are interested in the values of sustainability, local manufacturing and in promoting wellness among our customers. My employees and I are deeply grateful to have our products sold our online shop and various small stores and social organizations.
We assure you no less than our very best services, products and prices. We felt that healthy, cruelty free, organic and community beneficial products should be both economical and easily available and so we created our business!
We claim our status as artisan-traders, independent of all agri-food groups or of all signs of mass distribution from commercial giants. We try to work only with grass root manufacturers and farmers every time we create a new product line.
As part of our commitment to helping our planet - we now offer our 'Ethical Shopper Rewards' program! Show us how you recycle our product packaging when you are done and we will take 5% off your next bill!
