Zane Kareem Adams, Co-CEO of Buchi states, "Sugar is an interesting crop because it is very environmentally intensive, not only with growing but also with the harvesting process, and we have struggled a lot to find ways to grow sugar without doing deep detrimental harm to our food system."
After searching for an organic and regenerative supply partner, Buchi landed on Global Organics and verified the supplier through mutual friends. Global Organics partner's with Brazil's Natíve Green Cane Project, which bills itself as the world's largest sustainable agriculture project that is completely carbon neutral.
"We can't actually do well for each other and our planet if we aren't very curious, careful, and mindful about the inputs that we use to make the product, the process, and how our products get to the store.”
