Statement From Our Executive Director
Hope you are doing well! The R.A.W./C.L.E.A.N. Food Certification is pioneering a Standard for the global clean food movement. The Certification represents a science-based, integrative methodology to capture the "farm to table" journey of food. This month we spotlight Buchi Kombucha, an incredible company whose Kombucha defines what the R.A.W./C.L.E.A.N. movement is all about.
Buchi Kombucha started as a simple idea: brew and share kombucha with the community. They are born at the farmer’s market and grew up at a shared community kitchen in the mountains outside Asheville, NC. Their mission is to craft delicious, high-quality, nutrient-dense living foods; invest in the regeneration of the planet; and use business as a conduit for positive social impact.
C.L.E.A.N./R.A.W. Certifications are holistic systems certifications for packaged food products and supplements, which integrate multiple aspects of the production process from ingredient selection to manufacturing to delivery – the entire supply chain.
They embrace and include other food certification requirements and principles like GMP, HACCP, FSMA, HARPC, USDA Organic, Non-GMO and more, and are applicable to a wide range of packaged food products and supplements, including snack bars, health drinks, fermented beverages, ready-to-eat foods, juices, oils, functional foods, and nutritional supplements.
