About Terrafertil/Essential Living Foods

Terraholdings is an umbrella brand for the highest quality companies within the organic foods, health products and functional foods industries. Terrafertil has developed products that are recognized for their unmatched levels of purity, nutrition, and ecological & social integrity. Terrafertil has aquired Essential Living Foods, an importer of high quality, organic superfoods (foods very high in nutritional value and usually also high in anti-oxidants).

Terrafertil and ELF will consistently provide the highest levels of quality, purity, integrity and sustainability in their products, business and relationships. Their core principles are: conscious consumerism, direct relationships with their farmers and suppliers, respect for and protection of the environment, and respect for the communities where they do business.

Terrafertil and ELF want to a) help "announce" our corporate values with third party validation, and b) support the widespread adoption of the B Corp standards and mission by many, many other organizations.
