About Farm Brothers

Farm Brothers is an organic food company, started in 2013 by two best friends in the Netherlands. Since its founding, the mission has been to provide the world with wholesome, tasty, and affordable organic grain snacks that also increase awareness of the benefits of organic food for the planet and all beings living on it.

So far, the company is on the right track with nationwide distribution in the Netherlands as well as expansion into several other European countries. Farm Brothers supplies its delicious cookies to mainstream and organic retailers, as well as supplying cookies to the best restaurants, hotels, catering companies, and health cautious companies as a mid-day snack.

Being a B Corp allows us to benchmark our own company’s environmentally cautious business practices to an internationally appraised standard for 'using business as a force of good'. The B Corp community continuously motivates us to keep raising the bar and implementing positive change for us and our partners.

The Change We Seek®

Farm Brothers was founded on believing the company’s primary attitude is to do good for people and the planet by producing products the right way. This means not only using organic ingredients but also paying a fair price to all involved in the complete supply chain. The company is convinced that the “Farm Brothers way” of doing business will eventually impact the food system as a whole. It seeks change by offering products that are delicious, have an appealing packaging design, and a decent price point in order for healthy organic snacks to be in arms reach of every household.
