From time to time, we will feature one of our suppliers, so you can get to know the distributors behind the produce, products, and labels you see on the shelves of your local organic food store. The more informed you are about where your food comes from – the better able you are to make the best decisions about what you put on your family’s table.
This week, Largo Organics wants to tell you about:
A family business located in the south end of the Beautiful Okanagan Valley, Real Raw Food works hard to provide unheated, non GMO, pure organically grown foods at a fair price. They learn how the food is grown and processed to insure it is living food farmed ethically and sustainably.
From their home page:
Our purpose is to provide unheated, non GMO, pure organically grown foods at a fair price. That means paying more to the grower in some cases and lower to the consumer in most cases. To do this we go to the source. There we learn how the food is grown and processed to insure it is living food farmed ethically and sustainably. The food is shipped directly from the producer to us for most products.
These foods are what we want to eat but many of them just aren’t to be found in stores, so it’s symbiotic. Many foods that are called raw are not. Some are dried at very high temperatures, some nuts are heated for shelling and often they are heated by the sun while at sea in the shipping containers to over 170F. None of our whole foods have additives.
