(NaturalNews) With all the rampant corporate corruption and government tyranny over the food supply that is taking place all around us on a regular basis, it sure is a breath of fresh air to see one of the premier pioneers of the superfood industry thriving in the midst of all this. For the fourth year in a row, superfood brand Nutiva has made Inc. 5,000 "Fastest-Growing Companies" list, a truly honorable accolade that shows just how popular healthy living through nutrition is becoming.
In case you were unaware, Nutiva is a well-respected provider of organic coconut, hemp, and chia food products that we here at NaturalNews have long endorsed and supported. Back in 2010, in fact, Nutiva's founder and CEO John Roulac participated in a NaturalNews Talk Hour during which he discussed "Superfood Nutrition: The NEWest Trends" with host Jonathan Landsman.

"This is the fourth consecutive year we've made the Inc. 5,000 Fastest-Growing Company list, which is a great endorsement of the superfoods industry," says Roulac. "Our customers are looking for nutrient-dense, organic foods that enhance their health and fit into their busy lifestyles. Coconut, hemp, and chia have nourished people in this way for many centuries."
Not only has Nutiva always maintained a strict commitment to clean, organic foods, but the company has generously donated millions of dollars' worth of cash and food plants to schools, farmers, and local communities as part of its "pay it forward" vision. After its recent expansion to Point Richmond, California, for instance, Nutiva partnered with the nonprofit group Common Vision to plant a fruit tree orchard at every one of the 25 public schools in the area. Nutiva has also freely given away tens of thousands of coconut seedlings to independent farmers around the world.
None of this would be possible, of course, if it were not for a growing awareness about the amazing health benefits of superfoods like coconut, hemp, and chia foods, all of which are the "bread and butter" of Nutiva's entire business. Nutiva's loyal customer base and average annual growth rate of 55 percent have propelled this leader in nutrition to No. 2377 on the Inc. 5,000 list -- and the company only stands to continue growing in future years, even in the midst of an otherwise flailing economy.
Nutiva is one of the few large companies today that has not been built on greed and deception. John Roulac truly cares about the products his company makes, and his goal has always been about improving the health and well-being of the people of the world, all while adhering to strict agricultural and production standards that respect the earth. A model of what it means to be a good steward of earth and humanity, Nutiva truly is a company worth supporting, and one from which you can be sure you will always obtain quality food products.
