Clearspring

    • Clearspring is a privately owned UK company established in the 1980s to distribute great tasting traditional foods that support good health; promote sustainable agriculture; and provide economic stability for producer communities
    • Set up by its current Chairman, Christopher Dawson, in 1993, Clearspring has grown from annual sales of £640,000 to monthly sales of £750,000 in 2013
    • Clearspring currently distributes over 180 products from around the world, has 16 wholesale customers in the UK, and further wholesale customers in more than 40 countries worldwide
    • From their west London offices Christopher and his staff travel around the world in search of high quality products that meet Clearspring's exacting standards
    • Each product is carefully evaluated for purity of ingredients and ecologically sound manufacturing practices
    • Clearspring looks for products that are GMO free and made with whole organic ingredients
    • Refined organic ingredients such as organic sugar are not acceptable; Clearspring believes that refining organic foods depletes them of their intrinsic value
    • Clearspring foods must also be made by traditional methods using time-tested recipes
    • Indeed, some of the foods Clearspring labels are made using methods and recipes dating back 200 to 500 years or more
    • In addition to its large selection of traditional Japanese foods, Clearspring is currently expanding its line of traditional European foods
    • These include an extensive range of organic cold pressed oils, sugar-free organic fruit spreads, organic grains, seeds and almonds
