Frontier Natural Products
Many of the healthy and wholesome brands we offer at Thrive Market started out by taking an unconventional approach to food production. So it should come as no surprise that some of these companies also take a non-traditional approach to the way they do business. Such is the case for Frontier Natural Products whose unique business model is a member-owned cooperative of wholesale buyers and sellers. When all members have a share in the profits, everyone wins. The result is a selection of food and household goods that are crafted responsibly, ethically, and maintain the highest level of quality on the market.
The History of Frontier Natural Products
Frontier Foods is a member-owned co-op that first got its start back in 1976. The company was launched in Fairfax, Iowa in a river cabin and began by selling herbs and spices and bottling essential oils. Since then, the brand has grown into one of the natural product industry’s top suppliers.
Frontier Natural Products Company Mission
Offering a wide selection of organic food staples, household essentials, supplements, and personal care items, Frontier Natural Products remains committed to its founding values of integrity, openness, social responsibility, and respect for the environment. As a member-run cooperative, the brand feels its special relationship with its owners is at the heart of its success.
Benefits of Frontier Natural Products
Frontier is owned by stores and other organizations that buy and sell its products. Rather than being controlled by a single owner and a board, the company is owned by its many wholesale customers. These stores and organizations both provide capital for the business and share in the company’s profits, enabling everyone to have a say in the decision-making. But what’s even more exciting about a co-op approach to business is that the members share the same values as the customers—a desire for high quality, wholesome products that are produced with respect for the environment and the people who grow and manufacture them.
