Nutiva began in 1999 as an idea in the mind of John W. Roulac, the author of four books on home composting and industrial hemp. Nutiva is the third successful business Roulac has founded since jumpstarting the modern home-composting movement in the early 1990s with his best selling-book, Backyard Composting (one million copies sold).
Nutiva introduced America's first hemp food bar at a time when the extraordinary nutritional value and ecological benefits of hemp foods were little known. Nutiva then introduced an entire line of organic hemp foods, while also adding Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Nutiva's products are offered in 6000 US, UK and Canadian retailers--including Whole Foods Market, Wegmans and The Vitamin Shoppe.
Nutiva expresses its corporate citizenship by donating 1% of its sales to organizations promoting sustainable agriculture.
Nutiva was recognized by Fast Company magazine for their David-and-Goliath victory over the United States Drug Enforcement Agency in 2003, which had planned to classify hemp foods as schedule I drugs. Fighting a heroic legal battle, CEO John W. Roulac, and other industry leaders appealed the DEAs ruling and won their case.
