|The Real Co's Pink Himalayan salt|
Buying organic food is great, but when companies like Walmart get into the organic food game, you have to wonder how much the local farmer is being helped.
The Real Co seeks to change that.
This single origin global food company espouses the mantra “good comes from good.” It just launched with three products: Basmati Rice, Himalayan Pink Rock Salt and Organic Raw Cane Sugar. All of these are sustainably harvested from either a single farm or family with products that can be traced back to their exact origins.
The transparency in food origin extends to transparency in packaging- you can see inside each item.
The Himalayan Pink Rock Salt is handcrafted in the Himalayan Mountains and is a gorgeous contrast in color - I sprinkled it on white chocolate chip cookies for a sweet and salty effect.
The Organic Raw Cane Sugar dissolves in cold liquid as well as hot, so it is ideal for cocktails when you've forgotten to make a simple syrup or for sweetening iced tea.
The third product, white basmati rice, is harvested in Punjabi. It cooked up fluffy and nutty, with each grain holding its integrity.
That integrity extends to the products themselves; the farm workers who help produce these products are paid a fair wage.
