Our Co-Founder, Susan, worked in international development for over a decade before starting One Earth. First working in research at Bath University and then to build more resilient livelihoods and helping small scale farmers through community based extension and better access to markets with international NGOs.
After starting a family she didn’t want to travel so much but still wanted to do something worthwhile, helping smallholder farmers.
When Susan and her husband Patra had kids and they found that drinking smoothies was a great fun way to get extra nutrients into their diets! Who knew it was so hard to get kids to eat their greens!? They didn’t want to keep buying loads of different packets that would fill all of their cupboards and they wanted to make sure they were giving their family the best quality nutrient dense foods on the market. So they went to a specialist herbalist and product development team that have previously worked for the likes of Pukka Tea, Neil’s Yard Remedies and Yeo Valley. They meticulously researched the best dried fruits, seeds, algae and leaves the world has to offer.
Our blends were developed by a team of organic experts- including a master herbalist, Jane and Maria,the ex-quality manager for Sainsburys as well as Susan and various other operational talents that have decades of experience supplying organic ethical foods.
We have four blends for adults focused on energy, skin health and deep nourishment. And two aimed at the whole family- packed with nutrients that support the immune system and brain function whilst still tasting great for children (Chocolate and Vanilla)
We got them laboratory tested and it turns out they are some of the most nutrient dense ‘superfood’ blends in the world!
We are now on a mission- to get everyone, kids, teens and adults, eating more fruit and vegetables. Smoothies are a great way to do this! Adding extra nutrient dense dried and freeze dried foods are just an even better way of boosting nutrients!
From our family to yours x
