About TallGrass

Founded in 1997, TallGrass is a Vancouver-based manufacturer of products under the Botanica brand and distributor of whole food supplements and natural beauty products. Their company philosophy is to bring natural health and wellbeing products to progressive retailers and consumers in a manner that upholds values of environmental and social responsibility.

They are curators of some of the world’s most amazing, purest and most functional medicinal plants, herbs and superfoods. Their ingredients originate from smaller, trusted sources and whenever possible, are wildcrafted or certified organic. All of their formulations are rooted in traditional plant medicine and most often incorporate the whole plant, not just parts of it. Using a number of proprietary, cutting-edge techniques, our master herbalists and nutritionists extract the most out of each and every ingredient, so that you can be assured of the integrity, potency and purity of each and every one of our products. No shortcuts. No synthetic derivatives. A strict product verification and quality control process ensures that their products contain only good things, and never the not-so-good, such as pesticides or contaminants.

To commit to the high standards of B Corp and join in the movement to bring awareness to other companies, especially in Canada, that a healthy planet should be at the core of business purpose.

The Change We Seek®

It’s a busy, busy world. Everyone is stretched to the max, running here and there, and we all feel an increasing demand to go longer, farther, faster. Stay up later, wake up earlier. Honestly, sometimes it’s as if leading a healthy life has become a competitive sport. To lead a healthy, balanced life, we need to love and be loved; to have a sense of passion and purpose; clean food, water and shelter; sleep; and sometimes, a little extra help. And asking for help is perfectly okay. With focus on health, TallGrass is here for you and is committed to selling premium-quality supplements and beauty products. Hoping to lead by example, they will continue to explore and discover new, natural, quality, and effective ways to keep your family healthy and thriving in this busy, busy world and hope other companies will consider business practices to support personal, community, and planetary wellness.
