Yes! Please email us with info about your FBC or if you are interested in starting a new FBC - and we will be happy to provide you with details!
Do you have a COA (Certificate Of Analysis) or Spec Sheet available?
We obtain COAs and/or spec sheets for our products through our suppliers. Since we currently do not conduct our own lab-retesting to re-verify the lab test information, we cannot offer any guarantees in regards to accuracy in this regard.
For the highest level of assurance, it is always advisable to obtain your own independent lab tests, especially if you are reselling products that you are manufacturing.
What are the expiration dates for your products?
All our products are sourced as fresh as possible (usually from the latest harvest) and we have a rapid product turnover rate assuring optimal quality. We keep temperature sensitive products (such as hemp oil, miso, bee pollen, pine nuts, etc) refrigerated until they are shipped.
When stored correctly (cool, dry, dark, and airtight), most whole foods (ie grain kernel, whole legume, whole dried fruit, etc) have at least a minimum shelf life of 2-3 years from purchasing date. Processed products (ground, flaked, cut, roasted etc) are a bit more subject to oxidation and will be fine for about 1-2 years from purchasing date under optimal storage conditions.
Are all of your products Organic?
All products are certified organic unless stated otherwise! (We have a small amount of wild harvested herbs or items like salt, clay, etc.)
Are all of your products GMO-free?
Yes, certified organic assures GMO-free!
Are your products gluten-free?
Even though we carry many gluten-free products, we are not a gluten-free facility. We do not test or rate the gluten content of any of our many products and therefore cannot guarantee that they are gluten-free. This being said, we have developed strict standard operating procedures in order to avoid cross-contamination during our packaging process and those who are just trying to avoid gluten in their diet should have no issue with our products. However, we recommend that if you are extremely sensitive to gluten, you only purchase products from a certified facility.
