Eating healthy is expensive. It shouldn’t be. Meeting the new U.S. nutritional guidelines is difficult for many Americans. It doesn’t have to be.
We formed Edison Grainery to remove the stigma that only the elite are eligible to eat organics. Our parent company, Edison Grain Inc., is a leading supplier of high quality, certified organic ingredients. Since we are the first hands in what often becomes a long daisy chain of producers, manufactures, distributors, and storeowners, we wondered what would happen if we joined hands and offered organic ingredients at extremely competitive prices. We’re committed to providing safe, wholesome products; from Pantry Staples to Superfoods – we offer something for everyone. From the Industrial & Commercial sector to the families with food sensitivities, our commitment to our customers is the basis for creating a HACCP (hazardous analysis critical control point) plan that complies with all regulatory programs and our certifying agencies.
For us, Food Safety is paramount. We’ve dedicated the financial resources to ensure that the construction and the maintenance of the premise and equipment meet applicable regulatory and HACCP program standards. Preventing cross-contamination and ensuring the integrity is an over-riding principal. All employees have an understanding of the importance of defining allergens, consequences to sensitive people, importance of allergen control, most common problem areas, and control measures.
Edison Grain Inc. facility is comprised of three separate warehouses providing segregated receiving, storage, and production lines according to allergens.
Unit C, or as we call it, The Nut House is simply where we store and have a dedicated production line for nothing but nuts and a few sesame seeds.
Across the parking lot, the 25,000 sq. ft. of Unit K & Unit L are dedicated allergen-free production and storage of our Organic Ingredients.
This is where the bulk of our operation takes place. This facility is free of known allergens including the Big 8; Milk, Egg, Fish, Crustacean Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Wheat, Peanuts, Soybeans, and Sesame. It is here that raw ingredients and productions lines assemble our gluten free/allergen free products. See our products page for a complete list. * = allergen free!
Our commitment to Food Safety includes aggressive risk management measures. To verify our supplier’s Certificate of Analysis, we send a sample of every lot of every product to an Independent Lab to test for microbiologicals, gluten, and genetic modifiers. For highly suspicious ingredients (product of India & China), we test for heavy metals, pesticides, and percentage of active ingredient. In house testing continues with routine on-site gluten testing and ATP swabbing of equipment prior to each production run. Finally, all finished goods pass through a state-of-the-art metal detector. We maintain comprehensive production logs and verification of Performance Documents for five years.
Edison Grain Inc. is pleased to be certified & in good standing by the following agencies. Being certified means that we adhere to strict production standards and undergo scheduled and “surprise” on-site inspections.
Kosher: Chicago Rabbinical Council (CRC)
HACCP: NSF International (NSF)
Our commitment to bring you the finest, organic products extends to the way we package each ingredient. Currently our retail line comes in a low VOC, rice bag that features a resealable zipper and tear notch. The pouches standup in your pantry and a clear window lets you know when it’s time to reorder. Until the packaging industry responds to our demands for a green shelf stable product, we’ll continue our quest to source the most earth friendly packaging.
Edison Grainery stands behind all our products. Contact us immediately if you're not satisifed. Returns must be made within 10 days of purchase. Open bags beyond this timeframe will not be considered refundable.
We’re tickled to offer cutting edge products like our ever expanding line of Organic, Raw, Superfoods and an ambitious selection of Gluten-Free products.
