Our Supply Chain

Only 6% of companies have complete visibility into their supply chains [1]. And that's problematic. It means that there is no guarantee that the products we buy are produced without degrading the environment and using exploitative labor practices.

The current food commodity market is an example of an obscure supply chain where goods are passed through so many intermediaries--from multiple aggregators and brokers to sellers on Alibaba or distributors to the company--before they get to you. Once those goods arrive in your hand, they become stale and flavorless objects with shady origins and unknown social and environmental impacts.

At bountifood.co, we do it differently. Transparent supply chain and direct partnerships with farmers are at the core of what we do to bring foods with integrity to you. What does our supply chain look like? Farmers to bountifood.co to you. That's it.

Why Do We Do This?

Not because it's a trendy thing to do. These direct relationships help us ensure that we bring you quality and tasty food, meaningfully improve farmers' lives, and truly, more than just putting all the possible buzzwords in the descriptions, restore our planet's land and resources.

Delicious Food
Rather than buying from commodity piles where crops are unnaturally big and artificially perfect but lack flavors, we go on a search for farmers who steward their land and grow their crops regeneratively because they know that this will yield nutritious foods that pack with flavors.

Real Positive Impacts
Getting close to the ground allows us to see how farms are managed and that the positive social and environmental impacts actually happen. And since the research around regenerative agriculture is still evolving, close collaborations allow us and farmers to exchange and implement new ideas that can help improve agricultural practices and create products that will continually improve the environment and satisfy your taste buds.

Better Wages for Those Who Care for the Land
We bypass all the middlemen and go straight to farmers to give all those profit margins back to them and more. In particular, to those who grow crops whose commodity markets determine their unrealistically low prices. Farmers are more than just folks who grow our foods. They are stewards of the land--what they do directly impact our environment and the foods that go inside our body. bountifood.co goes beyond Fairtrade prices and rewards farmers more so that they have secure and stable lives, which allows them to have the resources to invest in caring for the environment we all share.
