bionaturæ® uses USDA-certified organic ingredients and reduces their carbon emissions by using renewable solar energy.
Why we love it
Somehow bionaturæ makes a humble can of diced tomatoes extra ritzy. For starters, they only use premium, organic tomatoes. Where are those tomatoes grown, you ask? Oh, just the Italian countryside. No big deal. Each plump tomato is picked at its peak and chopped up so all you have to do is pop open a can and get cooking.
How it does good
A deep commitment to better farming and better food
bionaturæ is dedicated to reducing their environmental impact. First, their ingredients are grown on small organic farms in Italy that practice crop rotations and other earth-friendly techniques. bionaturæ also uses sustainable practices when harvesting and processing their fresh ingredients. Their olives are hand-picked and pressed into oil in less than 24 hours, while their tomato canning facility is only a stone's throw away from the fields where the tomatoes are grown. They've also installed solar panels on their warehouse roofs and use fully recyclable or compostable packaging.
responsible sourcingbionaturæ sources from organic and non-GMO farms who use regenerative techniques and traditional methods honed over generations of family farming.
low carbon footprintWithin Italy, bionaturæ minimizes transportation emissions by pressing their olive oil, dehusking their wheat, and canning their tomatoes within a stone's throw of the fields where the fresh ingredients are grown and harvested. They recently installed solar panels above their warehouse that will cover over 100% of their electricity consumption.
recyclable packagingbionaturæ uses a mix of recyclable and biodegradable packaging that is free of plastic and BPA. Even the clear windows of their pasta boxes are made of compostable FSC-certified wood pulp.
