August 2016 Partner Q&A: AgStandard
How did your company get started?
AgStandard was founded in 2015 in Los Angeles by Peter Egan to represent quality, transparency and accessibility in the food we eat and our everyday lives. AgStandard is a quality centric brand formed around applying high quality, natural cooking principles to packaged snacks. We locally source California grown almonds as well as our spices, roast using natural dried wood, use no oils, and hand package with minimalist designs.
Tell us about your company mission.
AgStandard makes food that is both high quality and accessible to everyone, two things that often don’t come hand-in-hand. With each snack made, we represent the idea that good, transparent food should be available to all.
- We enable people to eat healthy food that is made honestly with all natural ingredients.
- We go the extra mile with each step of our product so you don’t have to.
- Quality is our promise to you, non-gmo, Kosher, vegan, gluten-free, no refined sugar, made with love.
Can you tell us a bit more about your community involvement and initiates?
AgStandard is community-invested through local events, non-profit donations and partnerships. 10% of all AgStandard’s online sales are contributed to Swipe Out Hunger, an organization that partners with college campuses to use extra meal points towards feeding community members facing hunger.
AgStandard also has direct relationships with our almond growers in order to serve our customers with the most honest intention of knowing who and where our food is coming from.
Tell us about the Classic S&P Almonds featured in Craftly!
The Classic Salt & Pepper smoked almonds include a seasoning blend of a coarse sea-salt and black pepper. There’s a sweet and salty aspect to them that makes the natural smoky flavor POP!
Why Craftly loves AgStandard:
We fell in love with AgStandard almonds after we found them in our neighborhood grocery store! Not only are the flavors and taste unprecedented, AGStandard supports community and sustainable business practices. We’re stoked to support this local, small business and share their love for unadulterated, simple and delicious snacking!
