Newest Partner Reinforces MegaFood’s Unique Commitment of Sourcing Direct from Farm Partners
DERRY, NH (July 15, 2015) – MegaFood™, a pioneer in the natural supplement category, today announces a partnership with family-owned rice growers, Lundberg Family Farms® from Richvale, CA. Growing rice for over 75 years through four generations of family members, Lundberg is a premium, independent supplier and brand of organic rice and rice products loved by consumers throughout the US and Canada. As the exclusive provider of organic brown rice for MegaFood, FoodState® Vitamin E and Biotin are made with Lundberg's premium rice, including their award-winning supplements: Skin, Nails & Hair™ and Baby & Me™.
MegaFood believes in delivering supplements that are as close to the intention of food as possible and is committed to sourcing farm fresh produce directly from local farmers like Lundberg Family Farms. MegaFood is the only supplement manufacturer to create individual nutrients in-house, using its proprietary Slo-Food Process™ to deliver a supplement like no other available. In fact, anyone can watch this process live at megafood.com/livecams.
“We’re the only whole foods supplements company that controls our entire process, from the family farm to our tablets,” explained Robert Craven, MegaFood CEO. “We buy more than a half million pounds of fresh produce every year. Our farm partners are not suppliers they are our trusted friends. It’s not about the biggest farm – it’s about the best farm led by people who truly care about the integrity and future of our food chain for generations to come. Partners like Lundberg, Uncle Matt’s Organic, Stalhbush® Island Farms, James Lake Farms, and Kauai Organics are exactly why we’re a different kind of company – producing a different kind of product.”
Producing over 17,000 acres of organic, gluten-free and vegan rice, Lundberg Family Farms is committed to eco-conscious farming practices to create the highest quality, nutrient-rich rice possible. “This is an incredible family operation,” said Stacey Gillespie, MegaFood Director of New Products. “Not only do they have a vision to keep the land better than they found it, but they also take extra precautions to consider the wildlife in their fields with a program dedicated to saving duckling eggs from being damaged during planting season.”
“We’re proud to produce the best, organic brown rice at our family farm, and partnering with MegaFood will allow people to experience the benefits of our rice in a whole new way,” said Grant Lundberg, CEO of Lundberg Family Farms.
Two popular MegaFood® supplements that feature Vitamin E and Biotin made with Lundberg’s organic brown rice include Skin, Nails & Hair, an award-winning MegaFood whole foods supplement which promotes a healthy glow from the inside out*, and MegaFood’s Baby & Me, a prenatal supplement supporting the health of mother and child during pregnancy and beyond.* As with all MegaFood products, both are easy to digest and can be taken on an empty stomach without upset.
