We purchase ingredients from US and Canadian suppliers as well as internationally from recognized third-party certified organic suppliers. The ingredients we source outside North America aren’t currently available within the continent in the quantity and/or quality that we require.
Nature’s Path only buys ingredients from suppliers who meet the strict quality control standards set by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National Organic Program (NOP), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Our facilities are recognized in the US by the Food and Drug Administration and in Canada by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. We work closely with ALL our food suppliers to ensure that food safety standards are strictly adhered to.
Nature’s Path does not currently purchase any products internationally that would require “product of…” labeling. In the form these ingredients are purchased, they are labeled as “product of USA” or “product of Canada” as they have been further processed in North American facilities where compliance with food safety standards is tested and confirmed.
Foreign-sourced ingredients undergo the same rigorous organic, food safety and quality certification requirements as products from Canada and the US. Extensive analysis led us to the conclusion that these ingredients are the highest quality available in the world.
