Lead with innovation
Our transformative vertical supply chains fundamentally shift the ‘profits by all costs’ model into one where our farmers, the environment, and our customers are prioritized.
Unlike traditional ingredients companies, SIMPLi owns its supply chains, working directly with growers to ensure each product meets the strictest quality standards. SIMPLi's vertical supply chain transitions profits traditionally benefited by middlemen back to the farmers.
Regenerative organic program
Regenerative agriculture restores our planet’s resources rather than depleting them and improves farming communities.
The global food supply chain has taken financial advantage of the farmers that grow our food, and the consumers who receive fradulent ingredients positioned as "single origin" and “organic.” SIMPLi’s regenerative organic program ensures its ingredients are ethically sourced, sustainably grown, and 100% authentic.
