Frontier Co-Op - Spices

About Frontier Co-Op - Spices

Frontier was born a co-op, and is still a co-op. Since our founding in 1976, Frontier has been a member-owned co-op dedicated to supporting and advocating values of the cooperative community. We remain firmly committed to our founding values of integrity, openness, social responsibility, and respect for the environment.

Frontier Co-Op New Label

Co-ops around the world are bound by a set of seven principles. Originally developed in the 19th Century, these co-op principles have changed little since and remain the core values of co-ops everywhere. They guide Frontier to do business with integrity and responsibility as representatives of the tens of thousands of member stores (many of them co-operatives themselves) and buying clubs that are our owners.

We have always thought of the way we do business as an essential part of our success — advocating environmental sustainability and ethical business practices — and we consider it a requirement of our future success that we grow and prosper by contributing to the world rather than exploiting it.

Every spice has a story.

We're proud of our products, those stories, and the way we do business at Frontier. We know our values are shared by you and now we have a label that highlights those values. It's all right there on the label — our co-op heritage, our commitment to stewardship and ethical sourcing, our concern for quality, our use of organic and natural ingredients, and the direct partnerships with our suppliers that set Frontier Co-op apart. Our new label makes it clear that Frontier Co-op is the go-to brand if you care about what's in your food, where it comes from and how it affects the people who produce it.
