Like us, Ceres Organics believe in the power of real wholefood ingredients. So this bag of powdered goodness is made from the whole leaves of organically grown matcha plants, from the lush rolling fields of the Uji region of Kyoto, Japan. Nothing else added.
Matcha is favoured by Buddhist monks as natural fuel for the mind, body and soul. With just a third of the caffeine of coffee, balanced by its unique nutrient composition, matcha powder has a special focussing effect. And what makes it super valuable is you consume the whole leaf and all its magic, so one serve can offer the benefits of up to 10 cups of regular green tea! Add 1/2 a teaspoon of this concentrated superfood to just about anything smoothies, juices, desserts. Or enjoy as a nourishing tea.

Ceres was founded in 1982, when a biodynamic and organic fresh produce stand run by Juliet Lamont premiered at the Michael Park School fair in Auckland. As a mother, Juliet wanted to feed her two boys organic food, but it wasn't readily available in stores at the time. So she took the initiative to find others wanting organic food and called on organic farmers she knew to supply what they produced. The stall was so successful that Juliet began a weekly organic co-op out of her garage in Mt. Wellington. A teacher at heart, Juliet returned to her first love in 1990, handing Ceres over to Noel and Rodnie as directors. Ceres Organics became the first EcoSocial certified company in New Zealand, a certification that recognises an ethical and socially responsible sourcing philosophy based in the company's operations. EcoSocial is a fair trade certification based on organic principles and social justice headquartered in Brazil alongside the Brazilian biodynamic movement The Ceres Organics journey onwards continues with a 120 co-worker team, a strong guiding philosophy and new developments on the horizon.
