Core Product Criteria

Clearspring’s Core Product Criteria include

  • Free from chemical additives including flavour enhancers, anti-caking agents, and colourings.
  • Minimal refining of cereal grains used in the recipes.
  • Free from ingredients or materials known to be damaging to the local environment (flora and fauna), e.g. soya beans from primary rainforest areas.
  • Grown and processed with respect to local communities and in compliance with the UN Convention for Human Rights (www.un.org/rights) and the core standards of the International Labour Organisation (www.ilo.org).
