ingredient sourcing

Sun & Swell is proud to provide the highest quality product possible - down to the ingredient level.

All our products are USDA Organic, ensuring that our ingredients are free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other artificial agents.  We are also certified Vegan, guaranteeing that our snacks do not contain animal products or byproducts and that they have not been tested on animals.

                                                             

As a B Corporation we are challenged to ‘vote with our dollar’ and be intentional about what businesses we support through our purchases and ingredient sourcing. We’ve found that sourcing from small suppliers (locally when possible) and vetting our vendors, on both their third-party certifications and on their internal values, ultimately translates into higher quality ingredients. 

For example, we source our Cacao and Cashews from Imlak’esh Organics, a local superfood company that is committed to sustainable agriculture, economic justice, cultural rights and healthy living. They support their farmers by paying living wages and providing socio-economic opportunities, rather than focusing solely on profit. By empowering indigenous and local farmers alike, they deliver an unmatched standard of unique superfoods that are hand-harvested ethically sourced.

We source our Pistachios from Santa Barbara Pistachios - the only locally-owned and family-managed organic pistachio farm on the Central Coast. Every phase of production happens in house and is overseen by the Zannon Family, guaranteeing that every single pistachio meets strict quality standards.
