Food Rotation

To ensure the freshest experience with your dried goods, practice the principle of "first in, first out." When you're refilling jars, put the new contents at the bottom and the old product back on top.

Airtight Containers

Whilst we love helping you, help the planet, our paper bags aren't the best way to keep your products. Airtight containers prevent moisture, pests, and odours. Mason jars, food-grade plastic containers, and resealable bags are good options for storing various items.
