Story Behind Our Products
At MOM’s, we carefully review new Grocery and Wellness items. Each month we’re presented with 100s of potential new items from national brands as well as regional, local brands. Supporting organic is our highest priority so we typically begin by reading ingredient panels – we give preference to organic items whenever possible and, if a product isn’t certified organic, will also consider the overall percentage of organic ingredients. Beyond this most important standard, we also look for ingredients that may present potential environmental and/or social issues such as palm oil, shea butter, eggs, meat, and chocolate. We scrutinize items containing these ingredients with in-depth analysis of supply chain and labor standards, allowing us to offer the most responsible choices for our customers. If products meet our ingredient standards and do not pose social or environmental risks, our product coordinators then setup tastings or trials of these new products. They receive feedback on taste, efficacy, packaging, pricing, and ingredients. Our coordinator team also attends national food shows to stay attuned to industry trends and exciting products. Additionally, we receive input from our stores and customers – we love to hear about new favorites you’ve discovered and happily consider them!
