We continually triail and Benefits of Maca Powderest many hundreds of Maca powders to find the most potent and effective ones.
The farming co-ops we work with in Peru only grows organically, without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. They also only grow traditionally, meaning that the land is allowed regular rest and is fertilized naturally. We are very happy to support these organic farms because traditional agriculture produces better quality Maca and preserves the land for future generations.
Each of our products must pass a strict Certificate of Analysis (COA) before it reaches us. We also do extra testing for pesticides and heavy metals.
Maca is harvested one time per year - between June and August. And we only sell Maca from the current year's harvest. Because we order in smaller lots, our Maca powder is continually made fresh. Most of the time it is in our customer's hands withn 3-4 months of being produced. Mainstream Maca sellers order in huge bulk shipments and their Maca can often sit around for up to 2 years before it gets out to the customers.
We use a foil lined double sealed totally opaque bag for our powders, safety sealed amber jars for our capsules and amber jars for our extracts. This keeps light, humidity and oxygen away from the product and ensures maximum potency of our Maca.
TWe pay above market price to farmers for our products and work on smaller margins in order to give our customers fair prices.
We work hard to maintain an accurate and updated website and base all of our comments and opinions on scientific research whenever possible.
We love and appreciate great customer service as much as you do and strive to exceed our customers' expectations.
Maintaining and continually improving the quality of all of our products is our top priority. We work with exclusively small scale organic farming co-operatives in the Peruvian Andes to source our Maca powders. We regularly test our Maca powders to make sure they are pure and potent. See samples of those tests here And we chose the best quality packaging possible in order to preserve the nutritional potency of our products.
In all that we do as a service team, the driving question is: “How can I serve our customers and other team members quicker, more efficiently and more fully?” This includes quick response times to questions, fast, accurate shipping and speedy resolution of problems. Simply put we aim to always treat everyone the same way we want to be treated.
We continually work to update the site with new research and new products in the Maca world. We review the site regularly to make improvements in navigation and overall customer experience. And we keep up with technological trends, such as having our site work well on mobile devices, to better serve all of our customers.
Our success is always a shared success. As we do better as a business in achieving our goals, we are able to reward our suppliers, our customers and our team members. For our farmers and suppliers it means increased revenue for their Maca. For our customers it means savings through lower prices for our products. For our team members our success means increased financial benefits as well as increased personal growth and satisfaction. Finally, our success is also shared with conscious charities that use donations to affect direct change.
We remind ourselves daily how blessed we are to work with a simple natural product that has helped people for 1000s of years and continues to do so today. We are as grateful for the earth’s role in producing Maca as we are for all the hard working hands that bring it to us. We celebrate this food and the privilege to share it with the world. And we know that if we do our jobs well, more and more people will have the opportunity to benefit from this amazing food!
We are always looking for unique ways to bring Maca into the world. That can be through new product mixes, interesting recipes, sponsorships of athletes and more. We encourage you to let us know if you have any ideas of how we can better serve.
