This week: Dagoba launches nonprofit fund | Natural by Nature makes organic grass-fed butter convenient

Natural by Nature combines the full, rich flavor of stick butter with the convenience of being in a tub with its latest product—organic, grass-fed butter in a 10 oz. tub. The butter is not injected with nitrogen (as whipped butter is after churning) and therefore holds its complete flavor profile. Available in salted and unsalted varieties.

Organic, artisan chocolate company Dagoba celebrates World Rainforest Day with a new look, new flavors and a nonprofit initiative. Dagoba responsibly sources its ingredients and supports the cacao communities by using only USDA certified organic cacao beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms as well as Non-GMO Project verified ingredients. As it expands its presence nationally, Dagoba has continued to support infrastructural, educational and women's self-empowerment initiatives within cacao communities with the launch of the One for All Cacao Project, a nonprofit fund that invests in infrastructure and education while continuing to drive women's self-empowerment in cacao communities in Peru, Tanzania, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.

Axiom Foods is helping the food industry add a helping of veggies into their burgers with a new non-GMO pea protein analogue called Vegotein MA. Made from yellow peas (Pisum Sativum), this highly functional ingredient can be used not only as a meat replacement, but also as a meat extender which decreases the cost for nuggets, patties and meatballs, yet adds nutritional content, grams of protein and has an added benefit of providing juiciness. Vegotein MA serves as an alternative to soy and wheat gluten. Applications include uses in ground meats, vegan/vegetarian meats and products developed for the allergy-sensitive.
