Who is Artisan Tropic?

Artisan Tropic creates clean, healthy snacks that not only are good for you, but taste great. The idea for the business came out of a need for clean snacks due to a family member’s health condition, which then developed into a passion for creating delicious yet nutritious snacks.  

The mission of Artisan Tropic is to create plantain and cassav snacks that provide a delicious snack while improving health and the quality of life of their customers.  

Why Choose Artisan Tropic?

Choosing a snack company that prioritizes the nutrition of its customers in addition to creating delicious food should be a priority for all. Artisan Tropic offers a variety of delicious snacks, ranging from grain-free crackers in a variety of flavors to plantain chips and cassava strips.  

Artisan Tropic has recently received the 2024 Natural Products Expo West (NEXTY) Certified Organic Product Award for their Tomato Herb Organic Grain-Free Crackers. The NEXTY awards celebrate the innovation and integrity of natural and organic brands across the country. 

Artisan Tropic’s remaining commitment to quality products is only further exemplified through their partnership with Palm Done Right. Using sustainable palm oil in their products further shows the importance of creating sustainable, high-quality products that are nutritious and taste great.  

The Importance of Sustainable Palm Oil

Across products, cultures, consumers, and more, the importance of using sustainable palm oil is key to creating products that taste great while supporting the environment and local communities. All too often, local farmers and the environment are constantly exploited and destroyed by unethical (also known as conflict) palm oil production practices. Instead of working to create sustainable ways of creating palm oil, many companies choose to contribute to rampant deforestation, habitat, and community displacement. However, with a change in consumer attitude and added public education toward the devastating effects that conflict palm oil has, many businesses have become aware of these harmful practices and have make a conscious choice to help the environment and independent farmers instead of hurting them. That’s where Palm Done Right comes in.  

Since palm oil is such a versatile and efficient product found in everything from food products to cosmetics and more, sustainable production practices are key to ensuring this product remains available for consumers while conserving the environment and supporting independent farmers. The benefits of using sustainable palm oil include: 

  • Biodiversity: Sustainable palm oil production adheres to rigorous environmental and organic standards set forth by the RSPO (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil). This helps in conserving biodiversity and preserving rainforests, animal habitats and more.  
  • Environment Conservation: Choosing sustainable palm oil means choosing to minimize the impact of palm oil production on the environment and local communities. The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, reversal of deforestation and more ensures that the land continues to remain fertile for the future while still producing high-quality palm oil. 
  • Relationships with Independent Farmers: Using organic, sustainable palm oil means choosing to support local, independent farmers in the regions palm oil is cultivated from.  
  • Customer Reputation: Choosing to use sustainable palm oil and committing to doing so lets your customers know that you’re committed to preserving the environment, supporting small farmers, and taking a stand against harmful palm oil production practices.  

Choosing to use sustainable palm oil in your products means choosing high-quality, organic palm oil that not only has a hand in making your products even better, but also in helping the environment.  

Companies like Artisan Tropic’s commitment to sustainable palm oil is the right step forward in creating the best products for consumers while prioritizing the conservation of the environment.
