Sustainable farming is something we’re passionate about so we try to lead with a kind hand. That means protecting our farmland, raising animals humanely and treating the people we work with fairly.
In 2000, our founder and his family bought land in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and converted it to organic. By demonstrating sustainable farming techniques, we’ve helped other Oregon farmers follow suit. It’s also allowed us to develop a local food web.
We’ve shown farmers that “going organic” is now more cost-effective, something they’ve really come to like. We’re pretty sure the planet digs it too.
Every day at Pacific, we celebrate the natural goodness of food. We’ve always believed that nature's work needs little refinement. That’s why we stick with just a few simple ingredients in our recipes, showcasing each ingredient’s true flavor and inherent nutrition.
We like knowing where our food comes from and we figure you do too. Since 1997 we’ve verified the origin of every ingredient we use through our Certified to the Source program. Even the smallest lentil is held to some mighty tough standards.
We’re proud to share with you our organic roots. It’s more than a passion, it guides everything we do. We’re always working to raise the benchmark in the natural foods industry, surpass our own sustainable efforts and educate others about doing the same.
We support transparency in labeling, because we believe you have a right to know what's in your food. You can be sure that every food that bears the Pacific name will be free of GMO’s, sourced locally whenever possible, and that every ingredient has a real purpose. We've never been big on shortcuts. Some might even call our slow cooking methods "old school." Perhaps, but we think food tastes better without additives or flavorings so we don't put 'em in our products.
We try to ask, what would nature do? She’s always had a way with food.
