"What started as an ambitious goal in 2021 has now been realized through dedicated team effort and our unified vision of being a force for good and using regenerative strategies to improve personal and planetary wellness," said Andrew Hebard, founder and CEO of Natures Crops. "Our flagship product Ahiflower®, a regeneratively produced, plant derived alternative to fish oil really highlights and emphasizes the positive global impacts that can be made through our authentic mission to provide regeneratively grown, sustainable, plant-based ingredients that support the optimal health and well-being of people, communities and the planet."

All of the pure and fully traceable oil from Natures Crops is cultivated regeneratively by qualified, independent farmers following protocols to optimize water management, enhance biodiversity, capture carbon, increase pollinators, prevent soil erosion and minimize chemicals.
