RAW, Humble Beginnings
In the spring of 2000, we began a journey to find the highest quality, purest, most potent pine pollen on the market. After completing an intensive search, we were left empty handed: no such place existed in the US. No one was even offering powdered pine pollen.
Branching outside the domestic market, we were able to find sources for pine pollen. Eventually, we found a clean source that met our own personal high standards. After using pine pollen assist with recovery from Lyme Disease (and its co-infections), realizing the vast potential pine pollen holds for the health of others, we founded RAW Forest Foods with the clear objective to help people find and use RAW Pine Pollen and Pine Pollen Tincture.
Our products have had a dramatic, positive change in our own lives, and we hope you will gain the same benefit from them.
Expanding Beyond Pine Pollen
Since those humble beginning, we have broadened our scope with a strict commitment to our original values: We find and formulate products that meet our obsessively high standards, products steeped in tradition, science, integrity, and quality. We then share those products with our customers at the best possible price. We're selfish, because we really, really love using our own products and we really, really love offering them to our customers.
A Deep Commitment to Quality
All of the ingredients used in RAW Forest Foods products are carefully hand selected, purchased from FDA cGMP and/or registered ISO 9001:2008 facilities.
The vast majority of our ingredients are either certified organic or are ethically and ecologically wild-harvested.
We process and manufacture all of our products domestically, in a FDA cGMP facility. All herbs (powders, tincture, and capsules) are processed in a certified organic facility.
