Nature’s Path joins the forces of good with Target’s Made to Matter program

“Always leave the Earth better than you found it.”

 

Over the past 30 years, this simple wisdom has guided Nature’s Path on its quest to bring delicious, healthy organic food to the world. From starting out as a one-product operation in the back of a restaurant in Vancouver Canada, Nature’s Path has grown into an international organic food company loved by millions in over 50 countries around the globe.

With its focus on always eating well and doing good, Nature’s Path proudly joins 20 other brands as part of the Made to Matter—Handpicked by Target™ partnership – a powerful program for good. Here, socially and environmentally-driven brands join forces to make positive change.

"spoon by spoon, we can advance the cause of people and planet"

“As a company that aspires to do more than making delicious and nutritious food, we know that spoon by spoon, we can advance the cause of people and planet,” says Arjan Stephens, Nature’s Path SVP of sales and marketing, and third generation of this family-run business.

“Which is why becoming a Target, Made to Matter partner is so heartfelt for we’re joining other purpose-driven brands to make better-for-you product innovation accessible for all.”

The unique partnership with Nature’s Path continues the company’s journey of giving and change. To-date, Nature’s Path has:

  • donated over $2.4 million to 1% for the Planet to both protect and make the lives of animals around the globe better
  • founded Gardens for Good in partnership with The Rodale Institute where each year, three $10,000 grants are donated to help grow community gardens;
  • donated $750,00 worth of food to local food banks since 2013 through its annual Eat Well Do Good foodraiser. The company continues its commitment to making organic food accessible to all through its Bite for Bite program where they donate $1 million dollars in the equal amount of food to local food banks for each bag of Love Crunch granola purchased.

“Our focus is around people, planet and profit, in that order"

“Our focus is around people, planet and profit, in that order,” adds Stephens. “We are excited to see how we can continue to change the world for the better with Target and our new Made to Matter brand partners.”
