ShiftCon is happy to announce Chosen Foods as one of our 2015 sponsors! They will be providing their verified quality avocado oil for all of the meals during the conference.
Chosen Foods started with Carsten Hagen, a native of Norway who had a strong interest in natural & healing foods. In the late 1960’s he set out to further this interest by becoming a Naturopathic Doctor and, while living in Canada, enrolled in a four-year correspondence course with a specialized US university to get his ND degree. Although he has ever practiced as a ND, his educational background and his passion for healing through foods became the foundation for his passionate business interest in the food & health industry, a field he’s been connected with for more than 45 years.
“At Chosen Foods, we believe that food has the power to heal and that you deserve complete and total transparency from your food provider.”
When the “natural” industry started to boom and avocado oil was new to the market, there wasn’t much known about it. The folks at Chosen Foods knew how healthy and versatile their product was, and they wanted to see how well the other oils did in testing as well. Surprisingly, they found that a number of the avocado oils that they had tested weren’t even avocado oil at all. Canola, sunflower and soybean oil are a few of the lower quality and less healthy oils they found in products marked “avocado oil.”
Because of this discovery, Chosen Foods makes all of their 3rd party data available to the public. They also give access to the exact nutrition data and certificate of analysis for each lot of chia seeds they grow, via their chia tracker, with the hopes that their customers will expect this level of transparency from all their food suppliers, holding everyone to a higher standard. At ShiftCon we really appreciate the level of transparency and quality provided by the Chosen Foods brand, and that’s why we are so happy to have them as a part of our conference.
