About Intrinsic Organics

At Intrinsic Organics, our mission is to grow and extract organic food ingredients from natureís complex resources to satisfy the growing demand for healthier foods in every industry. We saw a need for organic food ingredients to be locally grown and naturally processed in the United States, and we wanted to control the organic chain from soil preparation to the final process.

The facility is located in Weiser, Idaho on 32 acres of organically certified sustainable farm land, which grow the crops processed on site. In addition, other nearby farms custom grow SunSpuds, thus increasing the Carbon Offset Ratio (COR) by eliminating the need for distant transportation to the plant.
