The Product Discovery Zone at Spark Change provides a great firsthand look at many of the brands exemplifying the trends and macro forces that will shape the natural products industry for years to come.
This Spark Change-inspired series shines the spotlight on some of these brands by highlighting a different trend each week.
Trend of the week: Organic
Brands exemplifying the Organic trend go above and beyond for the movement by engaging in policy to improve upon its standards, expanding acreage or showcasing a deep understanding of the ecological journey to their organic efforts.
1. Natural Factors
Natural Factors is outstanding in the organic supplements space by virtue of being a vertically integrated organic company. Its Natural Factors Farms farmland is all certified organic, and the company only uses non-hybrid, non-GMO seeds in the growing process. The organic crops are watered by an aquafir that also feeds into a nearby lake, further ensuring that no contaminants reach the fields. Notably, Natural Factors also boasts its own extraction, encapsulation, production and research facilities, and is one of only a handful of branded manufacturers of nutraceuticals that does.

2. Moon Valley Organics
In addition to incorporating only sustainably grown, USDA Certified organic ingredients into its product line, Moon Valley Organics furthers its commitment to the organic movement by partnering with World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms to host and educate aspiring organic farmers and giving them a valuable, immersive look into how a thriving organic farm is run day-to-day. Moon Valley Organics partners with and supports organic local farmers, beekeepers and herbalists to ensure its affordable products’ high quality and potency.

3. Vive Organic
Vive Organic works intimately with a network of small, organic farms to produce sustainable, nutrient-dense ingredients for its line of wellness shots. These biodynamic farms restore elements of vitality to the soil and, by extension, improve the overall quality of the harvest. The company's co-founders regularly visit its farmer partners to maintain the high standards it sets for them. As an added bonus, these partnerships support the local economies and give Vive Organic access to "ugly" produce that would have been cast aside by grocery retailers.
