When John Roulac established Nutiva, the leading organic superfoods company, he believed in social responsibility and the power of corporate giving to change the world. He launched a giving program that each year would give away 1 percent of Nutiva’s sales to sustainable agriculture. Since 1999, Nutiva has donated more than $4 Million.

In 2013, Nutiva sought to ensure its philanthropic expansion through establishing the Nutiva Foundation.

Our Mission

The mission of Nutiva Foundation is to nurture people and planet by supporting the advancement of healthy communities and ecologically sustainable agriculture.
