NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE., September 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ancient diet is proud to announce the achievement of Regeneratively organic certified™ (ROC™) for the farms of its founders, Jordan Ruby and dr. Josh Ax in Tennessee and Missouri. With this monumental certification, Ancient Nutrition, by the company RANCH projectSM, will lead strategy and operations on the first-ever ROC farms in their respective states. Ancient Nutrition and its founders proudly join Gaia Herbs as two of the three nutritional supplement brands to achieve this distinction.
ROC of the Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA) is a revolutionary new certification for farms, food, fiber and personal care ingredients that goes far beyond current organic standards, assuring consumers that their purchase has a positive impact on every level: organic , ethical, and social. ROC is a holistic farming certification that ensures farms and produce meet the highest standards of soil health, agriculture, animal welfare and social fairness.
That Tennessee The farm is called The Center for Regenerative Agriculture, which is also the headquarters for Ancient Nutrition and its RANCH projectSM. This initiative focuses on the company’s commitment to regenerative agriculture, nutrition and climate health. The RANCH projectSM supports Ancient Nutrition’s mission: to heal the earth, feed the world and transform the health of everyone on the planet with history’s most powerful superfoods.
“The all-encompassing standards of Regenerative Organic Certified represent the culmination of ecologically responsible farm operations that, if fully implemented, will take our food supply well beyond organic,” he said Jordan Ruby, Co-Founder and CEO of Ancient Nutrition. “As the operator of the first ROC farms in the states Tennessee and Missouri, we aim to create a legacy of health and hope for Ancient Nutrition team members, partners and customers. With our “open source” research projects, we aim to inspire dozens, if not hundreds, of farmers to do the same.”
Ancient Nutrition relies on organic farms for many of the ingredients used in their products, including ingredients grown on their 130+ acre farms Tennessee and over 4,000 acres in Missouri. Now the company is making strides towards developing dietary supplements that can be fully Regenerative Organic Certified.
“When Gaia Herbs received the Regenerative Organic Certified designation for our 350-acre farm, we took our commitment to the health of the planet and organic farming to a new level. This certification signifies a commitment to the health of the earth as well as the health of the people who manage the herbs we grow,” said Alison E. Czeczuga, director of social impact and sustainability at Gaia Herbs. “We are thrilled to advance and promote the ROC principles with our friends at Ancient Nutrition who have been pioneers in regenerative agriculture and making a positive impact on the world.”
