Eating Organic in Today’s Economy

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Everybody knows it: our economy today looks a little shaky, with 700 point drops or increases shocking financial analysts almost daily.  But, regardless of the state of the U.S. economy, eating high-quality organic foods doesn’t have to break the bank.   An interesting article was posted by cook and  blogger Kristen Suzanne on 14 tips for buying organic foods in our tough economy.  Though we might differ on how we sometimes source our organic foods (Safeway doesn’t really represent transparency in their supply chain, and definitely doesn’t have personal relationships with farms), we do agree it’s important to maximize the quality of your organic and gourmet products for the price.

Firstly, if you’ve shopped around for super foods like our cacao, you’ll find that a number of our competitors charge prices nearly double of what we offer in our store.  Why?  It’s simple, they buy from middlemen who import the goods from agricultural markets, and we import our foods directly from farms, paying farmers a fair price and passing the savings on to you.

But that goes not only for our fair trade cacao products, but also for our organic Agave nectar, organically-grown vanilla beans, and organic coffees and teas as well.  We do business that way because it works; for us, for the farms, and for you.
