Share What We Do Well Month has come to end at WhiteWave. As always, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer at so many fantastic organizations throughout the Denver-Metro area. We recently had a group from WhiteWave volunteer for the Boulder Parks & Recreation Open Space near Eldorado Springs. The team learned about the “Native Switch Grass” that is close to becoming extinct. Only 1% of the “Native Switch Grass” is left in the world and the team from WhiteWave gathered the seeds from this plant. These seeds will be preserved to use if and when the current grass is destroyed by either flooding or fire.
Fun Fact: Boulder Parks & Recreation Open Space trails are visited by more people in one year than in Yellowstone! To learn more about how you can help preserve this vital land click here.
Halloween is the perfect time of year to get creative in your kitchen. From roasted pumpkin seeds to caramel covered apples and spooky treats – the options are endless! We are fans of this fun version of the classic gingerbread cookie from Sarah Bakes Gluten Free. As Sarah explains, “The adorable gingerbread man cookie is now more suitable for Halloween. I think he’s still pretty cute, even if he’s dead. Gingerbread skeleton cookies. Another “spooktacular” sweet treat!” To learn how you can make these ghoulishly-good cookies at home using So Delicious Dairy-Free click here!
We’re delighted to share the news that WhiteWave has entered into an agreement to acquire Earthbound Farm, the largest producer of organic packaged salads in North America and one of the nation’s leading organic brands. You can learn more about this news here.
Our two companies have complementary missions and values and a shared commitment to innovation, product quality, food safety, and sustainability. Together, we will provide the two most popular gateways for consumers to enter into the organic category – produce and dairy.
Like WhiteWave, California-based Earthbound Farm is an organic pioneer and innovator. Both companies are built around brands that offer great-tasting, responsibly-produced foods that are better for people and the planet.
We expect this acquisition to close in the first quarter of 2014. We’re excited to bring great brands and businesses together to benefit consumers, retailers, organic producers and the planet.
