At Second Nature®, our snacking philosophy abides by some simple rules: Instinctive. Fun. Good habit forming. In other words… it’s got to be ‘second nature’. We also believe that the foundation of a strong mind and body starts with what you eat — and what you eat is best when found in nature. With proper portions and smarter choices, snacking can enhance, rather than hurt, your diet.
Second only to food that’s plucked from the ground, our satisfying medleys are made using natural ingredients; like dark chocolate, almonds, pecans, pistachios, blueberries, tart red cherries and cranberries. No preservatives, artificial ingredients, colors or additives. Whether you’re craving something sweet, salty or sodium free, our medleys will hit the spot.
Second Nature® medleys are Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten free, and kosher certified. It’s simply just good stuff!
Second Nature’s social responsibility program is focused on three pillars: environmental stewardship, responsible sourcing, and workplace and community well-being. We are committed to managing our business in a way that minimizes our environmental impact, and ensures a sustainable future for both our customers and our employees.
Environmental stewardship is a major element of Second Nature’s corporate responsibility strategy. We continue to improve our environmental performance and conserve natural resources in our operating facilities. We have been dedicated to reducing our energy use, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water use and waste sent to landfill.
As one of the nation’s premier nut and trail mix snack manufacturers, we strive to influence responsible, sustainable behavior throughout our supply chain. The environmental and economic impact of the companies that provide us with ingredients, packaging and services are much greater than those of our direct operations. We source tree nuts, peanuts, seeds, fruits and chocolates for our snacks from thousands of farmers around the world; our ingredient purchases are important contributors to local farming economies. Our supplier commitments include:
• Comply with the laws regarding child labor, slavery and human trafficking of the countries of manufacture or production
• Support local farmers and their communities
•Lower energy and water use and recycle material waste products
• Adopt sustainable and renewable energy practices
Second Nature’s mission is to provide nutritious energy people need to achieve their daily goals. We’re committed to enriching the lives of our employees and the communities we operate in. We actively seek to make our work environment safe and welcoming, and we believe it is both our legal and moral obligation to comply with nondiscrimination laws and to treat all employees with dignity and respect.
We are proud to be a member of the metro Detroit business community, and we are dedicated to actively contributing to the area’s growth and enrichment. Our charitable contributions committee evaluates giving opportunities and donates both products and funds to charitable organizations.
