Supplier Stories: Simpli
Meet SIMPLi, our chia seed and quinoa supplier, aka the key ingredients behind our most popular menu items!
Quinoa – misunderstood by many (is it pronounced kween-oh-ah or kwin-oh-ah?) but oh, so good for you! We're letting you in on the amazing source that supplies both our quinoa and chia.
Meet SIMPLi: a minority, woman-owned company founded in 2020 on a mission to transform the food system into one that is good for you, for the planet, and for producers.
It's important to us to work with partners who share our commitment to the best taste possible; who believe in treating their employees and the environment as ethically as possible. Of course, impeccable food safety standards are a must, as well as the capability to meet our demand for volume.
We're huge fans of SIMPLi because they believe in ethical food sourcing for a better world and even improve the livelihoods of their farmers by providing direct access to global markets to create better economic opportunities. Their commitment to investing in the growing communities of Peru and Paraguay benefits both the farmers and customers who receive these nutrient-dense, high quality ingredients.
Did you know? When you enjoy our Pineapple Coconut Chia Seed Pudding or our new Mediterranean Bowl with quinoa you're fueling up on nutritious grains from farming communities in the mountains of Peru and Central Paraguay? Let's get into it.
