EarthKosher was founded with the intention of supporting smaller natural food companies to obtain kosher certification in an affordable, and down to earth manner. EarthKosher is committed to being the leading kosher certification agency in North America, for natural and organic food companies. We are constantly inspired by the values these companies hold, and the energy and commitment that is placed in these values. Earth Circle Organics is one of these remarkable companies.
We are an importer and international distributor of raw and organic superfoods. At Earth Circle Organics we believe that the food we put into our bodies is one of the most important aspects of our lives. Our mission at Earth Circle Organics is to educate, expand, and supply the market for sustainably-sourced raw and organic products, and to operate with the highest integrity in all of our activities. That is why we source organic and minimally processed products with the highest standards of quality and integrity. We partner with farmers and producers who have a strong commitment to improving livelihoods of local communities.
History of Earth Circle Organics
Earth Circle Organics was founded in 2006 in Northern California. Our humble beginnings started with a bucket of organic olives, a few jars of raw nut butters, and a circle of friends. Overtime we began gathering and sharing more raw and organic superfoods, branching out to include cacao, goji berries, maca powder, and coconut palm sweeteners. Earth Circle Organics developed lasting relationships with growers around the world and excited consumers in our surrounding community. Starting with our local co-op, we began distributing our exceptional products to start-ups, processors, restaurants, and retail outlets. Earth Circle Organics has continued to grow and develop, always with a constant focus on excellent customer service and exceptional product quality. We are proud to be a leader in the organic and raw food movement as we continue to source and supply superfood products from around the world.
Sustainability & Stewardship
At Earth Circle Organics we are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint and act as a steward for the earth wherever possible. We currently utilize an eco-friendly Green website hosting service, GreenGeeks, which is powered with 100% wind-energy and has a negative carbon footprint, and developed our website with a certified Bay Area Green Business, Earthsite. As Earth Circle Organics continues to grow and evolve we are always looking for more ways to improve our systems and practices to better support environmental awareness.
