Edward & Sons Trading Co.
Where We Stand
Our company was born out of a commitment to create delicious vegetarian foods with convenient preparation for those with busy, health-aware lifestyles. We travel the world tasting regional foods, sourcing the finest ingredients and partnering with reliable, ethical farmers, packers and food artisans to create our unique range of organic vegetarian specialties.
We support organic and sustainable farming methods that avoid GMO's and chemical pesticides. When you purchase Edward & Sons products, you become part of a network that rewards farmers who implement ecologically conscious and organic farming practices. You support packers who go to the trouble and expense of third party certification to USDA Organic standards in over a dozen countries. You become part of our vision to nourish ourselves and our planet, enhancing the lives of everyone along our supply chain, from farmers to consumers, in an abundant and interconnected world.
Vegan & Vegetarian
Edward & Sons Trading Company, Inc. is a vegetarian company, which means all of our products under all of our brands are vegetarian. In addition, most of our vegetarian products are suitable for vegans. We typically affix our vegan logo to the packaging of those items for quick consumer identification of our fully plant-based foods.
We have been selling gluten-free products for about 40 years. In addition to developing recipes without ingredients known to contain gluten, our procedures specify a combination of licensed laboratory and in-house random testing to confirm the absence of gluten in our finished products. Third third party certification agencies typically test for gluten at detection limits of 10 or 20 part per million (ppm). Edward & Sons' gluten testing standards require all of our GF foods to test negative for gluten at a detection limit of 5 parts per million (5ppm).
At Edward & Sons we believe that everybody is different and every body has different needs, a point that is often overlooked by conventional food companies who cater solely to “mainstream” customers. We select each ingredient with care, ever mindful of our most sensitive customers. We have prepared a number of charts and lists to help those on special diets select appropriate items from our range of offerings.
