The team of self-proclaimed nut-heads at Nut-Tritious Foods has been a part of the Green Business program since our pilot project in 2011. Ken Condliff, Chief Nutty Officer and founder of Nut-Tritious Foods, has a passion for healthy living. The nutrient-dense nut butters are made fresh in small, weekly batches with organic, vegan, and non-GMO ingredients.
Ken's take on nut butter is that they're healthy for us and for the environment. Organic quinoa, chia seed, and flax seed meal is used in all of Nut-Tritious Foods' butters to make them more nutritious, hence the name.Nut-Tritious responsibly excludes palm oil from their nut butters, as the production of palm oil is a massive source of deforestation in rainforests around the world.
This small business is a leader in waste reduction, as their six person team has worked to completely eliminate waste going to landfills in the production of their nut butters. These nutty environmentalists have worked with their suppliers and customers to ensure that every level of nut butter production has zero landfilled waste.
In addition to being active in environmental stewardship, Nut-Tritious Foods is active in the community through donating their nut-butters to local food banks and sharing kitchen space with other local food businesses.This nutty team engenders innovation and entrepreneurialism as several employees have gone on to open their own successful bakeries after working at Nut-Tritious Foods.
Today Nut-Tritious Foods products are available at various stores throughout Washington and Oregon, and at the farmers markets in downtown Vancouver, Portland State University, Beaverton, and Lake Oswego.
