Regenerative Organic Certified

Agriculture is one of our biggest indicators and influencers of human and planetary health, which is why we have always sourced through a regenerative lens. With our new Regenerative Organic Certification, we're building further trust and transparency in our sourcing.

Founded on the principle that human health is intertwined with the health of our planet, the Regenerative Organic Certified® program builds on the success of Organic Certification and further shapes holistic farming systems and practices to better address soil health, animal welfare and social equity.

Regenerative Organic Certified Cacao

A customer favorite and brand staple for almost two decades, Navitas Organics Cacao Powder is our first product to be certified as Regenerative Organic Certified® (ROC). Our work with ROC is a milestone, cementing our commitment to our growers and customers as we address the cacao industry's historical legacy of exploitation and unethical labor practices.

Navitas Organics Regenerative Organic Certified® Cacao Powder is grown by smallholder farmers in Sierra Leone. By partnering with smallholder farms and cooperatives like The Liloma Cooperative, we can be confident that our cacao not only offers the highest quality and nutrient density, but also supports the development of integrated, inclusive, and restorative farming practices that honor growers’ sovereignty, economy, and environment.

Agriculture Aligned with Nature

While the Regenerative Organic Certified® designation is new, its practices have been around for thousands of years, drawn from the ancestral knowledge of cultures around the globe. They vary with each region’s unique natural resources, climate conditions and ecological dynamics; however, the common thread through these diverse practices is growing food in a way that follows and supports nature.

Today, these practices have been codified under the ROC label as a way of assessing the full ecological impact of agricultural producers and providers. Regenerative Organic Certified® takes the ideals of organic certification to their natural conclusion, ensuring that healthy food doesn’t come at the cost of the people who grow it or the land it was grown on.
