Wholesome has a strong commitment to sustainable agriculture. In adherence with strict organic standards, the sugar cane fields are green cut and are not burned or treated with chemical herbicides or synthetic fertilizers. This is better for the environment, which ultimately, we believe is better for everyone. This also creates the highest quality, most delicious-tasting unrefined brown sugar you can find. No chemicals, bone char, or animal by-products are used to make or de-colorize this sugar making it ideal for vegans. Fair Trade Certificatoin is Wholesome’s guarantee that our farming cooperatives are paid directly for the cane grown and milled. This means that the farmers can compete with factory farms, cultivate high quality cane crops, send their kids to school and build thriving communities. Thank you for choosing Wholesome!
