The values alignment between Simple Feast and good natured® to make life easier and better for humans and the planet led to a natural partnership between the two companies. “The importance of keeping food fresh needs to be balanced with earth-friendly packaging options that are also better for human health, and this is what good natured® packaging provides our customers,” said Paolo Zambrano, VP Operations (US) at Simple Feast.
North of the border, Canadian-based Vegano, delivers plant-based meal kits and grocery staples to the greater Vancouver area and Vancouver Island using sustainable packaging options from good natured®. “After a difficult search to find sustainable packaging, we were delighted to find good natured® this year. Together, we are answering the demands of our customer base who are expecting businesses like us to make environmentally friendly packaging choices.” commented Conor Power, CEO at Vegano.

Our team is consistently reviewing market trends to identify opportunities to work with like-minded partners who demand a strong focus on their health and our planet. We’re on a mission to detoxify the food industry, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be on this journey with customers like Simple Feast and Vegano.”
