The Made to Matter program challenges its partners to create products that meet the following five targets:

  1. Reduced waste and packaging to create eco-friendly products.
  2. Utilize closed loop systems, so the excess of one product or process is transformed into another product.
  3. Made without additives and harsh chemicals to ensure it is a clean label product.
  4. Accommodates dietary and allergen restrictions.
  5. Reduced sugar to improve the health of consumers.
  6. Not only has Nature’s Path met these five requirements, but it has gone beyond. Check out the infographic below to find out why we are Made to Matter.
