Business Sustainability

We are fully supportive of local organic farmers who respect the environment by minimizing soil degradation, optimizing productivity and reducing the carbon footprint of the planet.  All organically grown foods used at ShaSha Co. are free of inorganic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides and are not subject to any genetic engineering processes.  Organic quality refers to growers who use methods and materials that have a low impact to the environment and are committed to maintaining and replenishing the fertility of the soil.

We believe in environmentally responsible organic farming and only use naturally grown ingredients.  We are proud to provide the highest quality foods to you and your family.  Choose organic products to promote responsible farming, sustainable agriculture and a healthy environment.
