Frequently Asked Questions

In 1960, Back to Nature was born in a small California health food store with a simple goal: to create delicious food with natural ingredients. We helped to plant the seeds of the modern natural foods movement and are proud to continue supporting that cause today.

Our purpose is to create great tasting foods that the whole family can enjoy. We carefully select each ingredient and are proud to be Non-GMO Project Verified and plant based. That’s why we never use high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, or artificial colors and flavors.

In 2023, the Back to Nature brand was acquired by the Barilla Group. Back to Nature operates as a stand-alone brand under the Barilla portfolio, but both brands align in their shared mission to celebrate quality ingredients and finding joy in food.

Back to Nature products that are certified organic will either carry the USDA organic seal or state that they are made with organic ingredients on the front panel. They will also state below the signature line that they are certified organic by a USDA-Accredited Certifying Agent. In addition, we use some organic ingredients in several of our non-organic items. Any ingredients listed in our ingredients list as organic comply fully with the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) standards.

Our current certified organic products are: Organic Stoneground Wheat Crackers, Organic Classic Saltine Crackers, Organic Roasted Garlic & Herb Stoneground Wheat and Organic Rosemary & Olive Oil Stoneground Wheat Crackers.

We use two USDA Accredited Certifying Agents: Quality Certification Services, Inc., and Quality Assurance International which are accredited certifiers per the USDA National Organic Program.

For over 10 years, Back to Nature has partnered with The Nature Conservancy, the largest environmental nonprofit in the world. They are working to advance conservation in all 50 states and U.S. territories and in 70 countries. Since 2019, Back to Nature has donated to The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign, helping to plant more than 275,000 trees.
