Let’s face it, marketing departments do an effective job at selling comfort and security. The Clean Label Project Purity Award evaluates products for substances that would never be found on a product label. These substances include chemicals of concern and industrial and environmental toxins and contaminants (like heavy metals, pesticide residues, and plasticizers) that have the long-term potential to adversely affect health and well-being. Clean Label Project uses benchmarked data to compare individual product test results to the test results of the best-selling products in the same product category. In the process, we reveal to brands how their ingredient supply chain and quality assurance systems fare compared to industry leaders. We reveal to consumers what brands are taking the extra steps to minimize consumer exposure to known chemicals of concern.

Piko Provisions is more than just a fun name to say, Piko is a Hawaiian word filled with deep meaning. Many know your piko as your belly button and your connection to the beginning of life. For us it represents the bond between parents and children, the link to generations of family, and our relationship to the land and food that nourishes us. Piko captures our commitment to growing families with the absolute best foods and strengthening Hawaii’s future. All of our ingredients are grown and harvested by our growing partners using regenerative farming practices to prevent land degradation, show respect for the planet that nurtures us and to provide you and your family with the healthiest, most delicious foods that are also great for our planet. At Piko Provisions we only use whole fruits and vegetables in our recipes. What you see listed on every pouch is what you get — no applesauce bases, artificial flavors, genetic modifiers or synthetic preservatives for long-term shelf stability. Just honest-to-goodness food straight from Hawaii. At the core of each Piko Provisions recipe is one or more voyaging superfoods lovingly grown in Hawaii. These superfoods have a storied history of feeding the people of Hawaii and are especially rich in nutrients and antioxidants that help babies develop healthy immune and digestive systems. From feeding the next generation to fostering a more sustainable food system, Piko Provisions is committed toward building a brighter tomorrow.
