It all started in 1998 when GFA Brands, Inc. (that’s our parent company) introduced Earth Balance® spreads as an all-natural sidekick to its already successful Smart Balance® products.
Soon after launch, our Earth Balance® Original Buttery Spread started garnering some serious attention in the natural foods world and even gained recognition as a winner in several taste competitions. Score one, nature. Before long, Earth Balance® Buttery Spread became the fastest selling and most popular all-natural butter alternative in the country.
Fast forward to today and we’re now happily expanding and enhancing our current line of tempting, natural foods and beverages. What began with a spread has now transformed into a full line of buttery spreads, baking sticks and shortenings, dressing and sandwich spreads, and coconut spread. But we won’t stop there. It’s our mission to continue innovating tasty new products and teaching the world what a positive impact natural foods can have on our bodies and the environment.
