Our Core Values

whats-new-organic-orchard-blush-laneLove

Love is our over-riding principle. We share a passion and love for the Earth, for each other, for our differences, for our food, for our energy and for our community. We honour ourselves and others by supporting sustainable agriculture and caring for the needs of our community . Our goal is to create a work environment where happiness and health flows from our team and supplier partners to our customers.  This passion for quality, care for how we make our living, and connection to our Earth translates into the way we conduct our business. When we act with love everything else falls into place.

Integrity

Guided by love, integrity goes beyond mere “responsibility” and is the basis of every decision made within the company, from hiring staff to choosing products to communicating with stakeholders. We value strong moral and ethical principles and adhere to fair and honest business practices. We are committed to supporting our customers’ health and well-being by giving them the best value and highest quality food found anywhere. We strive to do the right thing, even when it is the most difficult.

We give new, deeper meaning to the word “fresh”. Our passion for quality and commitment to supporting healthy life for our suppliers as well as our customers lead us to source responsibly grown products from local orchards and farms first. We also support small scale producers around the world who share our values of responsibility, love and care for the Earth. Our sincere appreciation for top quality food and products goes beyond the produce aisle. We honour the gifts the Earth provides in every product we offer.

Ecology

We cherish and respect the land that sustains and nourishes us. We take seriously our commitment to make the world a better place, to support a clean and healthy environment for generations to come. As responsible stewards of the Earth, we seek to improve- not destroy, the land that gives so abundantly. We joyfully put the needs of the Earth ahead of profits.
