Ciranda

Natural Foods

Food & Beverage

Ciranda supplies brands and manufacturers with the highest quality certified organic and non-GMO ingredients, with a focus on sustainable supply and fair trade practices. As the U.S. organic market began to mature, they saw an opportunity to support organic market growth in North America, and at the same time support the development of global communities they had become so connected with. In 2000, Ciranda transformed from an export model, to primarily an import model as it operates today, offering a core portfolio of ingredients derived from coconut, palm fruit, cacao and tapioca.


Throughout its history, Ciranda has focused on innovation through the growth and commercialization of organic ingredients. Ciranda introduced North America to organic tapioca starch in 1998, and organic tapioca syrup in 2001. In 2002, we partnered with a Brazilian palm oil producer to offer sustainable organic palm oils. Organic and fair trade cocoa, chocolates and coconut joined our portfolio in the years following. More recently in 2018, they expanded commercial availability of organic cassava flour and organic rice syrup, both with social programs designed to positively impact the livelihood of farmers at the beginning of the ingredient's lifecycle.
