Certified Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan Cookies, Whew!


Liz Lovely, the producers of those incredible, hand made, vegan cookies have upgraded their status.  Their entire cookie line is now certified organic, certified fair trade, and certified vegan.  Yet, the suggested retail price has not budged, it is still $3.99 to $4.39 for "2 big ones".


According to Dan Holtz, Liz Lovely’s vice president of sales, "Customer demand for Organic and Fair Trade products is huge, and still growing. We’re first-to-market with these certifications, and it was not easy to achieve all three certifications. Our new recipe uses only sustainably harvested organic palm fruit oil in place of the processed egg and butter substitutes we were using previously. It’s also important to note that, unlike palm kernel oil, palm fruit oil is heart-healthy and 100% free of trans-fat."

Liz Lovely partnered with the Vermont chapter of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association and TransFair USA to identify available ingredients, setup audit trail systems, and prepare the business for Organic and Fair Trade certification with the respective organizations. Liz Lovely has been Certified Vegan by Vegan Action since their inception in 2003.
