The Company Ethos
The driving force behind RAW Forest Foods is to provide customers with the building blocks necessary for creating optimum health and wellness: physically, mentally, and spiritually—with an abundance of resources to assist them on their journeys.
We excitedly involve ourselves in every step of the production of our products: From sourcing raw materials from the producers and wild-harvesters, where we select mostly certified organic and single-origin, wild-harvested raw materials, to our master-herbalist developed formulas, to working directly with our domestic, certified organic, FDA cGMP certified processors.
These are Superior Products for Regenerative Wellness.
A Deep Commitment to Quality
All of the ingredients used in RAW Forest Foods products are carefully hand-selected, purchased from facilities that are certified organic, FDA and ISO 9001:2008 registered.
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 FDA cGMP facilities that are certified organic.
The Origin of RAW Forest Foods
RAW Forest Foods was founded in the spring of 2010. But not as a business. RAW Forest Foods actually began as a blog, where Ryan detailed his use of Pine Pollen in healing from Lyme Disease, detailed harvesting it, and making his own Pine Pollen Tinctures.
At the time, there was very little information regarding the medicinal use of Pine Pollen available—either in print or on the web.
It didn't take long before people started emailing and asking if they could purchase his RAW Pine Pollen and Pine Pollen Tinctures. There wasn't anywhere else to get them. Ryan did some quick calculations, and RAW Forest Foods as a business was started.
By the fall of 2010, we were the first company offering RAW Pine Pollen and Pine Pollen Tinctures.
Expanding Beyond Pine Pollen
Since our start with Pine Pollen, 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 love using our own products, and we really love offering them to our customers.
The RAW Forest Foods Team
RAW Forest Foods was founded by Ryan Wade, who still works tirelessly every day to mold and shape RAW Forest Foods continually. He works closely with customers to develop new products and refine old products.
A dedicated support team that works diligently to provide you with the best customer experience. Jasmin is the newest addition to our team—our office manager and lead customer service rep. April is our shipping coordinator, ensuring all orders are packed with care and that they go out on time.
We have a truly unique team that sets our products ahead of others.
We even source our ingredients in person rather them buying them on the open market from faceless suppliers. We've been working with the same raw ingredient scout for many, many years, where he brings his college education in Traditional Chinese Medicine and his love of herbs to his job in finding us the absolute best ingredients.
The entire RAW Forest Foods team is committed to providing our customers with outstanding service and the highest quality products on the market.
And if you need—or simply want—to contact us, please don't hesitate to reach out! We love hearing from our customers.
