Sweet Earth Pizza - Why is it only 70% Organic?
Sweet Earth Pizza recently released a vegan meat lovers pizza, and it has become a favorite around the office. We noticed the packaging said 70% organic, and immediately thought “why is that?” It also made me wonder how many brands slap organic on their packaging and don't specify what percentage of organic it is. Made me thankful for Sweet Earth’s transparency as a brand.
After some digging, I stumbled across an interview with Sweet Earth’s CEO, Kelly Swette, and her response makes sense! As a small company, Sweet Earth can’t guarantee that suppliers they are working with will have organic ingredients year round. Ingredients such as the beans and grains are always organic though! In 2017, Sweet Earth was acquired by the company Nestle, so that may change in the years to come.
Even if you are not a vegan, we highly recommend these products. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
