The natural food industry is growing rapidly and is predicted to grow even more in the coming years. Organic is no longer a niche market for millennials and others. Overall, a general sense of health and wellness is growing in the general population. In fact, in 2018, organic food sales reached $52.5 billion and the numbers for this year are projected to be even higher, according to New Hope Network.
As we move into a new decade, sustainability and transparency of where food is grown are top priorities among many consumers. Those same consumers will head to the grocery store to purchase more organic food items, and even more so naturally-based products. Lifeline Foods is proud to be part of the growing trend towards natural and organic food. “We know the entire value chain in food has a responsibility to do more in terms of sustainable growing and manufacturing practices,” said Kevin Kelly, president and CEO of LifeLine Foods. “Consumers expect integrity and trust in the companies that make the ingredients for their food products.”
LifeLine Foods holds itself to the highest standard. Last year, we joined the movement towards transparent and honest manufacturing practices by opening a certified Organic, Non-GMO and Whole Grain specialty mill. The specialty mill allows LifeLine Foods to grow with the organic and natural foods market and produce high-quality, nutritious, tasteful corn ingredients.
