Organic Madagascar Vanilla Beans

8 Mar

Our theme at Expo West in the Anaheim Convention Center March 9-11 is “We Dig It,” to promote our organic Madagascar vanilla beans, which are used in products across all three brands of the Frontier Co-op family.

Why “We Dig It” ? Through a $40,000 donation from the Simply Organic 1% fund, we dug 49 wells in 38 villages where our vanilla beans are grown and processed. This effort brought clean water to thousands of people. Previously, women and children fetched water from a stream, sometimes walking up to several hours a day.

Here’s a look at this joint effort! See if you can spot Tony Bedard, our CEO.

If you are attending Expo West, some of the info below will fill you in about what we’re up to in Anaheim.  If you aren’t – which includes most of our retail customers – the information below will still tell you a bit about what’s new and how we interact at this trade show.

We’d love to see you at the Frontier™ and Simply Organic® booth #3532. We have some exciting new products to show you, including new bulk spices, bottled ethnic seasoning blends and new Simply Organic spices, baking mixes and more.

If you order directly from us, stop by our Frontier Direct booth #3730 and meet some of the folks who specialize in ensuring that your orders are filled quickly and accurately. We’ll also have displays of new products on hand. It’s a great way for us to meet members and get feedback on how to better serve you.

And join us at the Aura Cacia booth #3633 to learn about new products, make your own personal mister, and enjoy the music provided by DJ Drez. You’re also invited to attend our FREE yoga class Friday, March 9th, from 7:00 to 8:30 a.m. in the ballroom at the Hilton Avalon.

    I WISH I could be there in person, as I’m a native southern Californian. Alas, I made the mistake of moving to the Midwest several years ago and seem to be stuck there!
