ABBOTSFORD, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/13 -- One Degree Organics is dedicated to celebrating Earth Day every day. The company shows its appreciation for our planet's natural environment -- as well as its customer's health -- through its collection of traceable breads, seeds and flours.

One Degree Organics' traceability technology allows for each ingredient to be tracked to its origin, ensuring consumers are never more than one degree separated from the growers and their stories. Every One Degree Organics product is equipped with a QR code that can be scanned with a smartphone for immediate access to a detailed life story of each ingredient, including videos and photo essays.

"In its 43 year history, Earth Day has increased awareness and gratitude for the earth's natural environment," said Danny Houghton, vice president of marketing and sales for One Degree Organics. "The food we eat is a huge part of each individual's environmental impact, which drives our mission to provide consumers with the tools necessary to identify an ingredient's origins and build a connection with the farmers committed to truly sustainable agricultural practices."

Ingredients for One Degree Organics products are sourced from family farms committed to sustainable, veganic methods. A step beyond organic, veganic farming uses only vegetable matter to cultivate seeds and grains, allowing farmers to retain the integrity and nutritional value of non-genetically modified ingredients.
