  • 🤩 “It’s the right thing to do AND better for business”

“One of the things I'm most proud of too, is that we don't have to do it, but we are. Everything that we do from a mission standpoint… there's no one saying you have to do this or you won't be on the shelf. But we've made huge investments and huge commitments, whether it's in our packaging format, whether it's in our claims and certification, whether it's our farming practices. I mean, millions and millions of dollars of investment because it's the right thing to do. And we believe in it. And we also believe that business can be better for it, and I think we’ve proven that.”

ReGen Brand News:

  • Gut Nuts just launched in more than 400 Sprouts Farmers Market stores nationwide as part of the chain’s innovation set.

  • “Think about it this way. In 1999, no one knew what kombucha was. Now, 25 years later, it’s a $9 billion category. I’m trying to do the same thing with Gut Nuts. Right now, no one knows what a fermented nut is, and in 25 years, I want it to be a ubiquitous snack that represents a multi-billion-dollar category.” - Tim Richards
