Health & Wellness
Cumberland Packing Corp. believes in a holistic, balanced approach to wellness that incudes eating right, leading an active lifestyle, and enjoying life.
Our mission is to provide high-quality foods that help our customers and consumers achieve their wellness goals.
As a family-owned and operated business with close to 60 years in the food industry, Cumberland Packing Corp. understands the important role that food plays in our lives – not only from a nutritional aspect, but also from a social one. Food brings people together and is often the catalyst to creating lasting memories. And we’re proud to be a part of those special moments. We believe that food is meant to be enjoyed, yet moderation is paramount for well-being. Balance is at the core of a healthy lifestyle and, as such, should be achieved through mindful consumption of a variety of foods and beverages, and physical activity.
With growing obesity rates in the US and around the globe, as a food manufacturer we recognize the responsibility we share in offering products that help people achieve their wellness goals. We are proud to offer a wide range of healthful, wholesome products – many of which offer portion control, including alternatives to refined white sugar. These products provide consumers a substitution for refined sugar we might otherwise consume, helping millions of people manage their weight and reduce the risk of cardiovascular and heart diseases, and diabetes.
Additionally, we support organizations that are aligned with our mission. We are a charter member of the 50+ year-old Calorie Control Council, whose motto is “Healthy Eating and Exercise for Life™” and whose mission is to help promote products which facilitate weight management and educate consumers about the importance of both diet and physical activity.
Our small team continues to look for opportunities to further enhance our product offerings to meet our consumers’ varied needs. We are proud of our health & wellness achievements thus far:
100% of our products are safe for people with celiac disease. None of our products contain gluten, nor do they come into contact with glutenous products such as wheat during their manufacture.
Weight, Diabetes and Glycemic Management
Our non-liquid sweeteners are available in a packet format as an option for ease of portion control.
We also offer a low-glycemic sweetener option, Agave In the Raw®, as well as plenty of sweetener options that are suitable for people with diabetes. Zero-calorie sweeteners (based on one serving), include Stevia In The Raw®, and Monk Fruit In The Raw®.
Transparency & GMO Status
Within our entire In The Raw® line of products, we have ZERO artificial ingredients. We continue to work through the non-GMO certification approval process and have successfully gained non-GMO certification for Organic Stevia In The Raw®, Sugar In The Raw®Organic White, Agave In The Raw®, and All Sugar In The Raw® items.
As we look to the future, we will continue to focus our product development efforts on offerings with simple ingredients, that are nutritionally balanced, and/or provide a healthful alternative to mainstream products. We will continue to ensure that our products are labeled in clear and simple terms to help consumers make informed choices for a balanced diet. After all, we believe you should spend more time enjoying your food than reading what’s in it.
