OUR COMMITMENT

Our commitment to quality is unprecedented. With over a decade working in the health and wellness industry we have witnessed the rise (and sometimes fall) of companies working in the organic health food industry. By beginning the quality control on the farm and maintaining a tight watch on every single aspect of the harvest, production and shipping we treat our quality control like a submarine and do not allow even the slightest hole in our boat. We only deal with organic products and wild products in our certified FDA, and certified organic kitchen. If quality is the most important part of your business and your project, then we are a great team!

STORY ABOUT US

Gone Green Superfoods was created to bridge the gap between all the “middle men” between the farmers and the final consumers. We saw that farmers in developing countries were doing all the work planting, growing, tending, storing, sorting, packing and shipping the commodities around the world while the “traders” in New York and London who had never ever heard of the most of these countries, let alone visited them, were the ones setting the price. Not only this, but when the commodities leave the producing county the farmers were left with the least amount of money before the consumer decides to buy it. Absolutely no money was going back to the producing country, let alone the farmer. It is our mission to change this because in the end, it is the farmers who grow our food that are the real “bankers”.

OUR VISION

We take great pride in our vision. Our mission statement is; “To Create Social, Economic & Environmental Solutions for all people worldwide”. With a mission this big we must have a big impact. We see the best way to create Social Solutions is to empower not only our employees and vendors but our community. We believe in giving people a second chance. Every person, no matter how or where you grew up has undeniable rights as a human and those rights must always be protected. To create Economic Solutions, we believe the best way is to operate in a economic atmosphere that is less dependent on its currency and more dependent on its ability to produce value in the world. Last and certainly not least, we have Environmental Solutions. We believe the best way to create Environmental Solutions in the world we have to focus on Clean Air (Planting Trees), Clean Food (Organic, Wild, Heirloom), and Clean Water (Charity:Water, EcoFiltro).
