Passionately, Unabashedly & Irrationally Obsessive about Crispy, Crunchy Snacks.™
The first Mary’s Organic Crackers® seed was planted the day Mary discovered the power to create amazingly appetizing, gluten-free snacks using wholesome ingredients. The popularity of her tantalizingly tasty crackers quickly spread far beyond her home kitchen—inspiring her to leave behind a successful career to take a chance on her true passion. We continue to build on Mary’s original ingenuity by baking fabulously flavourful, seed-crafted snacks for you to crunch, top, dip, share and love.
The Mary’s Organic Crackers team is positively passionate about perfecting better-for-you food products that nourish and satisfy. It’s our mission to create healthier connections between people, products and our planet. Because when it comes to protecting Earth, even snacks can be mind-bogglingly mighty!
Our Snacks are Non-GMO Verified.
We insist on only non-GMO ingredients in our products. Because the long-term effects of altering the genetic structure of crops haven’t been determined, we only source ingredients that meet the strict standards of the Non-GMO Project Verified program.
We proudly support organic farmers.
What does “organic” mean to us? No pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers and no GMOs. (Organic is always non-GMO, but non-GMO doesn’t have to be organic.) It also means we’re committed to sourcing from organic farmers.
Our Practices Embrace the Welfare of All Living Things.
We’re committed to ensuring our products align with a dietary view that embraces the welfare of all living things. While our Kookies are made with sustainably sourced honey harvested with the well-being of bees in mind, all other ingredients in our products are vegan, containing no meat, dairy, eggs or anything derived from animals.
We’re Truly Committed to Whole Ingredients.
We believe in keeping ingredients in their whole form whenever possible to maximize their nutrient power. A whole food is one that is minimally refined or processed. Whole foods are of the earth, naturally flavourful and complex, plus provide an abundant source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
We Maintain Strict Standards at Every Step.
Our state-of-the-art bakery is supported by an on-site research and development kitchen and quality assurance testing lab. This is to ensure each Cracker and Kookie meets our remarkably high standards of temptingly toasty perfection.
Mary’s Organic Crackers products are minimally processed from consciously and sustainably sourced ingredients. We believe the healthy choices we make for our bodies should also be healthy for the planet.
The California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation is an ecologically beneficial partnership between rice farmers and waterbird conservation groups. Working closely with the California Rice Commission, the Foundation encourages the adoption of farming practices that provide seasonal wetland habitats to millions of migrating waterbirds.
At Mary’s Organic Crackers, we’re in our second decade of partnership with the Foundation. In this role, we provide ongoing support to the California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation as it pursues its vital mission. By sustainably sourcing rice and other ingredients, we’re able to minimize our ecological footprint.
At Mary’s, every day is Earth Day. That’s why we source the palm oil for our unfathomably delicious snacks from growers who follow harvesting practices established by Palm Done Right®, an organization dedicated to fostering sustainable, organic, fair trade palm oil. Natural Habitats created this movement to prove that when “done right,” palm oil can bring significant positive environmental and social benefits to the world.
It is the highest possible standard for palm oil and goes above and beyond any other certification program: animal habitats and rainforests are preserved, farmers are empowered, communities thrive and the environment is nurtured.
We’re immensely proud to source the honey we use to make Mary’s Organic Kookies from GloryBee®—the family-owned and -operated business that started the SAVE the BEE® initiative, a partnership of researchers, beekeepers, businesses and consumers committed to protecting honeybee health. Now in the second generation of family leadership, GloryBee produces an impressive range of ethically sourced, natural and organic ingredients from their Pacific Northwest home base in Eugene, Oregon.
“Being a family business rooted in natural and organic foods is certainly a sustainability birthplace for us,” says GloryBee’s company president Alan Turanski. “It is something we’ve been inspired about from the beginning. Investing in sustainability has shown us the value in creating clearer, more distinctive partnerships with our clients who also care about it.”
As a Certified B Corporation, GloryBee strives to be a sustainability leader. Mary’s Organic Kookies donates a portion of our sales to support its mission as a sweet deed for the planet!
Quinoa is an indigenous seed crop in Peru where our primary quinoa supplier, Colorexa, is based. Not only is the company a trusted resource for some of the tiny yet tasty seeds we use in our snacks, Colorexa is giving back to its community with the Happy Little Faces organization, which it cofounded. Located in Puente Piedra, Lima, Happy Little Faces offers resources to the generation of Peruvians most in need: children.
We’re totally thrilled that part of the proceeds from our partnership with Colorexa goes towards funding this charitable cause in its wonderfully worthy mission to improve the education and nutrition of impoverished kindergarten-aged children in the region.
