1% could not end the month without congratulating a couple of amazing new 2013 members. Both TruSweets and Northern Star Partners came aboard on the first of the year and we couldn’t be happier to have them.
TruSweets is a socially responsible company dedicated to making the world’s most flavorful candy using all natural and organic ingredients. They were inspired to join 1% for the Planet because our ingredients come from nature and they are committed to taking care of the earth for the enjoyment of themselves and their families. By working together with other like-minded companies, these efforts can be multiplied. As innovators in the natural and organic candy category, TruSweets hopes to meet organic ingredient suppliers, packaging innovators, and more people who enjoy naturally sweet treats!
The great folks at TruSweets were kind enough to send a couple of samples to the 1% office and they were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Both the Surf Sweets gummy treats and the all natural TruJoy Candy Canes were huge hits. Thanks so much TruSweets!
