When they began in 1989, the company was directly involved in setting up development projects in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. They offered interest free loans to small growers to obtain organic certification, and also provide them with a fair price for their organic peanuts.
For a variety of reasons, many of those projects have ended, but Nuts to You continues to support fair-trade and organic agriculture through the use of brokers who specialize in fairly traded organic agricultural products from developing countries. Their sesame seeds come from Central America (El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala) and Peru. Their organic almonds come from California, Spain or Italy and their peanuts come from a co-operative of growers in New Mexico or from China. They also make organic soy-nut butter from Ontario soy beans and sunflower seed butter with seeds from the Northern US.
