About Door to Door Organics

Door to Door Organics is an online grocer that delivers fresh, high-quality organic produce and natural groceries directly to homes, offices, and schools throughout Colorado, Chicago, Kansas City, and Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The company partners with farmers who are dedicated stewards of the land and use USDA-certified organic practices that are healthier for both animals and people, better for the soil, and reduce carbon emissions. Door to Door Organics’s shop-by-recipe and meal planning tools make it simple to eat delicious local, seasonal food that supports health, the communities it serves, and the environment.

Our mission is to bring more Good Food -- food that positively impacts health, communities, and the environment -- to more people in a sustainable way. Beyond the sourcing of our products and our delivery and packing practices, we make every effort to ensure all aspects of our business are run with the environment and corporate responsibility in mind. We’re constantly seeking ways to innovate, set new standards for excellence, and wow our customers, so becoming a B Corporation will help hold us to a higher level of accountability.

The Change We Seek®

Good Food sounds so simple, but it can be difficult to find in today’s complex food system. That’s why Door to Door Organics strives to be the country’s Good Food advocate. When selecting the freshest, highest quality organic and natural, local and seasonal foods they can deliver, the company weighs many different attributes. Here are examples of questions they ask:

• Does this food support local family farms and the community?

• What distance will this food travel from the farm to a customer’s doorstep?

• Were the animals that produced this food humanely raised?

• Is this grocery item as minimally processed as possible?

Door to Door Organics is dedicated to these principles and believes that in achieving them, the company will make a positive impact on our food system, make people healthier, connect communities, grow local economies, and inspire people to eat Good Food. 

What makes us a better company?
