What is Organic?
We feel organic agriculture is crucial to a safe and sustainable international food supply and that the basic values of organic agriculture — concern for people and the environment — are key to the well being of us all.
What is a Co-op?
Frontier Co-op has been a member-owned cooperative supporting natural living since 1976 — owned by stores and other organizations that buy and sell our products. We feel the insights and values we gain from this special relationship with our owners are at the heart of our success.
We're committed to the health and welfare of the environment and all the people involved with producing and consuming our botanical products.
Frontier began as a two-person operation in 1976 in a river cabin in Eastern Iowa. Since then we‘ve grown steadily to become a major supplier of natural products. Our success throughout the years reflects our close harmony with the product needs and the values of our members and natural products consumers.
We give back 4% of annual net savings to charitable causes and improves life in communities all around the world where our products are produced. (Many of our growers live in poor rural villages in developing countries.) We are committed to doing business in a way that is positive for everyone Frontier Co-op touches.
