Shār Gains USDA Organic Certification; Another Win for Healthy People and a Healthy Planet

April 12, 2023

Austin, TX, Wed Apr 12, 2023 /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Shār, a farm-to-table snack company based in Austin, proudly announces USDA Organic Certification from the Texas Department of Agriculture for all three of its Trail Mixes. This certification ensures that Shār uses only organic ingredients grown without chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The company’s commitment to sustainability, quality, and transparency is reflected in this achievement. Shār offers its customers USDA assurance that its premium healthy snacks benefit people and the planet.

“We want each of our snacks to be a nutritional powerhouse and incredibly delicious. We spent four years perfecting the recipe and finding the best possible ingredients for our Original trail mix,” says Peter Rushford, Founder, and CEO of Shār. “We buy our ingredients from smaller farms because that supports farmers and their communities.”

Shār underwent a rigorous five-step process to achieve USDA Organic Certification, including creating a detailed organic system plan, submitting extensive paperwork, and undergoing a comprehensive site inspection. The company believes that this certification is an important seal of approval, as it assures consumers that they are getting only organic ingredients and that they are being handled properly.

Organic farming creates healthy soil, healthy food, and a healthy environment. It supports biodiversity and ecological balance and also promotes carbon sequestration, resulting in lower carbon emissions than conventional methods. By using only organic ingredients, Shār is supporting human and environmental health while fostering thriving local economies.
