About Hilary's Eat Well

Hilary’s Eat Well is a real food manufacturing company in Kansas whose primary reason for being is to create products that make people feel good. Dedicated to nourishing bodies and the environment, only thoughtfully researched, non-GMO ingredients are used. The product offerings are free of common food allergens, easy to prepare at home, affordable to all and undeniably delicious! As an approachable, personable company, HEW is committed to forming long-lasting partnerships with suppliers, distributors and retailers.

For years, we have dreamed about becoming a Certified B Corp because we believe it legitimizes our commitment to sustainable businesses practices (3rd party verification).  As a young company we were very interested in utilizing the assessment process to help us formalize our internal policy making.  It’s so refreshing to learn more about other like minded organizations that are built on similar values and we very much look forward to getting to know the community of fellow B Corps.  

The Change We Seek®

Hilary’s Eat Well (HEW) strives to provide transparency to the food system, and support the eco-systems of their community and the planet. When sourcing ingredients, HEW searches for wonderful companies and producers that specialize in organics and hold similar values. On the HEW website, you’ll find exactly what’s in each product and where it comes from, so you can feel good about loving their food! 

It’s in the company culture at HEW to constantly seek more information about how food works with the human body, and provide information about how their ingredients can support people’s health. They make every effort to ensure their ingredients support a healthy body, world and economy. 

HEW’s products support the community they live in by sourcing the greens they use come from a local organic farm, donating veggie burgers to their local food pantry, and giving all of their compost to a sustainably-raised pig farm. 

What makes us a better company?
