Seeds Of Change
Rice, quinoa, and other grains are staple ingredients around the world. And if you’re a home cook, you know how handy these pantry workhorses can be, especially on a busy weeknight. Seeds of Change has your back when it comes to incorporating more whole grains in your meals. Before launching its line of organic foods to help you get dinner on the table, the company focused on selling seeds to farmers. And, after a decade of traveling the world to taste exotic flavors, the founders decided to branch out and create rices and simmer sauces, too. The brand is committed to organic and non-GMO ingredients, and signed the Council for Responsible Genetics “Safe Seed Pledge,” which states that a business “does not knowingly buy, sell, or trade genetically engineered seeds.”
The History of Seeds of Change
Seeds of Change was founded in 1989 to offer organic seeds to gardens and farmers, with the food line following in 1997. The brand supports sustainable practices and gives back—1 percent of every sale supports projects that help create healthier, eco-friendly communities around the world. To date, Seeds of Change has awarded more than one million dollars to farming programs, including many school gardens that provide produce for local families and food pantries, and help create jobs.
Seeds of Change Company Mission
The mission of Seeds of Change is to make organically grown seeds available to farmers and gardeners while also preserving heirloom seed varieties. And the belief that great flavors and sustainability aren’t mutually exclusive is central to everything the company does. The line of organic rice and grain blends and simmer sauces is no exception, and brings global flavors into home kitchens.
