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.
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.
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.
