Sweet Thins contains ingredients that help advance regenerative agriculture, demonstrating Simple Mills’ commitment to people and the health of the planet. Simple Mills sources from coconut sugar producers in Java, Indonesia, who use regenerative agricultural practices, such as agroforestry, perennial crops, and composting, which help improve soil health and protect biodiversity. The company is also investing in a multi-year project in partnership with Pur Projet to support coconut producers in Java, Indonesia, through agroforestry programs, food safety and soil health trainings, updates kitchen and tool upgrades.
Additionally, Simple Mills partnered with like-minded farmers and offered them financial incentives to adopt regenerative farming practices. To grow watermelon seeds, Simple Mills works directly with an Ontario farmer who implements regeneration practices such as multi-species cover crop planting and conservation tillage on his farm. Watermelon seed, the main ingredient in Simple Mills’ nut seed and flour blend, introduces greater crop diversity, a key result of regenerative agriculture.
