Product Spotlight: Fisherman’s Friend Mint


With demand for sugar free products on the rise, 1991 was the year our Sugar Free Mint Flavor Lozenges were introduced. The new recipe proved a huge success.








Company Overview

Way back in 1865 the town of Fleetwood in Lancashire on the North West coast of England was a thriving community and was very much the centre of the United Kingdom's fishing industry.

Fishermen young and old from the region used to depart on long fishing voyages from Fleetwood into the hostile and unwelcoming conditions of the North Sea and the Arctic Circle.

Conditions were tough and you had to be strong to continue on these voyages and many of the fishermen would suffer from coughs, cold and bronchial problems from the prolonged freezing cold and hostile weather.

One of the first residents of Fleetwood was a young pharmacist by the name of James Lofthouse. Amongst the many very effective treatments and remedies that James Lofthouse created was an extremely strong liquid containing menthol and eucalyptus, which helped relieve problems experienced by fishermen in the harsh conditions.

To make it easier to transport at sea, James Lofthouse made this liquid into small lozenges, which were much favoured by the local fishermen, who soon began referring to the miracle lozenges as their "Friends" and would not leave shore without them. It was therefore these first consumers who gave us the name Fisherman's Friend.

About the company

When Michelle began making fresh baby food for her firstborn son in 2007, she never imagined she’d soon be delivering her handmade purees to families all over New York City. Once a few friends' babies sampled her delicious concoctions, word quickly spread and the demand was instantaneous. Michelle loved the idea of more babies eating her organic purees, so she happily quit her corporate job, rented a kitchen, and started making baby food full time. Read More

About Rooibos Tea and Where it is Grown
Our Certified USDA Organic, refreshing red tea is rich in antioxidants and is naturally caffeine-free. Steeped from rooibos leaves, this tea is a delicious and healthy option to stay hydrated. 

Grown in the Western Cape of South Africa, rooibos tea is packed with antioxidants and nutrients. The rooibos tea, (pronounced ROY-BOS), the word actually means “red bush” and it is what many refer to as “red tea.” It is not a tea in the standard definition, but rather a legume similar to peas, beans and lentils. Rooibos contains endless health benefits that South African families have revered for generations. Rooibos naturally contains no caffeine, and unlike black or green tea has very little tannins or bitter qualities giving it a subtle sweetness.

It is high in two powerful antioxidants: aspalathin and nothofagin. These powerhouses may help fight against heart disease, inflammation, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Its unique minerals include magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc and iron that benefit the nervous and skeletal systems and may help with digestion, metabolism and circulation.

With all those powerful properties, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be one of the first to offer the benefits of rooibos in a convenient ready-to-drink bottle. In true Rooibee Red Tea style, we added extra goodness and included a full-serving of vitamin C and certification of USDA Organic.

Since we first launched in 2009 at farmers markets in Louisville, Kentucky, Rooibos Red Tea has become a staple in healthy homes across the nation. We love helping others stay hydrated and healthy with our organic, low-sugar teas that you can grab on-the-go. We hope you’ll take advantage, enjoy the refreshing flavor and join the movement! #InspireWellbeing.

Snack Spotlight: EPIC Lamb Currant & Mint Bar



The Lamb Bar is comprised of a select blend of 100% grass-fed lamb and sophisticated seasonings. To maximize the EPICness of this bar, we added both organic currants and splashes of dehydrated Spearmint Leaves, both of which are subtle, yet brilliantly harmonized.

The finished product is a truly EPIC tasting bar, guaranteed to satisfy your highly evolved omnivore palate and leave you salivating for more.

Domestic sheep are versatile and amazingly practical animals valued for more than just their meat. They have played a important historical role throughout American History. The great President Woodrow Wilson once purchased a flock (also known as a "mob") of sheep to graze on the White House grounds in order to conserve groundskeeping costs during World War I.

The sheep not only kept the lawn nice and trim, but also provided wool to be auctioned off to raise money for the American Red Cross.

















About the company

Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.

To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.

Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.

About the company

In October 2014, Erva's founder, Elliott Counts, tried yerba mate for the first time. "I remember seeing everything in full vibrancy. Everything was a little bit brighter, and I felt just a little bit lighter. I started buying bottle after bottle of Guayaki's Raspberry flavor." At the time, Elliott wasn't aware that loose-leaf bags of yerba mate were available, but he finally found a box of individual tea bags at Trader Joe's.

Taking a handful of tea bags, he would cut the tops off of them and pour them into a drip coffee pot. He would cut herbs like sage, rosemary, and oregano from his garden and mix in fruits like raspberries and sliced strawberries mainly to "...see what would happen."

About the company

It started out as just a hike, no different than countless others I've taken into the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Little did I know I was about to come up with a mountain of an idea: combine simple ingredients such as fruits and nuts to create a food product that's tasty, wholesome, and convenient.

In that instant, in May 2000, LÄRABAR® was born. After scouring the aisles of grocery stores and noting popular flavors of ice cream and cookies, I delved into my own product development.

About the company

Founder, Kenneth Park, has been drinking aloe since his early childhood days and it all stems from his mother. She experienced serious digestive issues and when all recommended medications failed, one doctor suggested trying aloe.

Adding aloe water to her diet not only resolved her stomach problems, but also improved her immune response to these on-going stomach pains. After realizing the plethora of benefits she experienced from ingesting aloe, Ken’s mother shared her aloe smoothies with the rest of her family.

Every morning with breakfast, she would serve her delicious aloe-filled smoothies blended with fruits, and yogurt to neutralize the plant’s naturally bitter taste.
