In conjunction with Pangea’s recent national Whole Foods roll-out (184 stores in the U.S. and U.K.) in June 2006, Colorado placement in seven (7) Whole Foods and 13 Wild Oats comes at an important time for Pangea.
What we realized from hosting intimate, educational dinner parties in cities across the country while on the Pangea Organics Educational Tour, stated Founder & CEO, Joshua Scott Onysko, was that the people closest to us knew the least about us. With the Whole Foods and Wild Oats Colorado roll-out, we intend to focus on educating those closest to us: Coloradans!
Full product placement and expanded shelf presence at the two largest natural grocery chains in the U.S. is a direct result of the company’s collaboration with internationally-acclaimed branding firm IDEO in San Francisco, California (USA). The company’s new brand identity, new packaging innovation and extended product line, which debuted at the start of 2006, is taking the small, locally operated, privately held company to the next level.
As a result of the re-branding project, Pangea has received two awards in honor of the company’s innovative packaging design within the past year. In April 2006, Pangea took home Best New Packaging Award at Organic Products Europe in London, England. In September 2005, Pangea Organics was awarded 1st Place in the category of “Green/Environmental Impact” at New Hope Natural Media’s Natural Products Expo East and was recognized as one of six companies with the Best New Product Offerings for 2006.

Pangea is an innovative company in more ways than one. With a total of 12 full-time employees, Pangea prides itself in offering a living wage of $12.50 per hour, plus full healthcare coverage and an Eco-pass for all full-time employees. In addition, the company provides an affordable all-organic employee lunch program prepared by local Chef Craig King. Pangea’s manufacturing/office facility is 100% wind- powered, distinctly decorated with Non-VOC paint to match the company’s packaging design and cushioned with carpets made out of recycled soda bottles. In support of the company’s continued efforts to "think outside the landfill," everything used to protect product during shipping is re-used, recycled or recyclable. End reams, which may otherwise be discarded, are purchased from a local printing press. Styrofoam found in shipments is shipped to Pangea from others, never sought or bought – simply reused. The company’s packing ‘peanuts’ are made from corn starch and are 100% biodegradable, not to mention edible.
