Nima, Salma, and Sahba are siblings with manufacturing running through their veins. Sharing a passion for healthy, natural foods, they began Riverside Natural Foods in 2014 and built the company as an extension of their family. Creating a good work environment was key to their success.
In 2018, Nima began experimenting with the ketogenic diet. Cutting down on carbs gave him more energy and focus. But as a busy entrepreneur, the meal planning and Keto-lifestyle were a challenge. Sensing opportunity in a market with few choices, he began experimenting to create a snack to satisfy his cravings. That’s when the idea of GOODTO GO struck him!
Our Core Values
Zero Waste Certification – TRUE
Riverside Naturals is proud to be a TRUE Zero Waste business. The Total Resource Use and Efficiency certification gave us the opportunity to understand how materials flow through our Riverside dedicated facilities and identify areas in need of a redesign. It’s one of the ways we continue to demonstrate our responsibility to the social and ecological health of our planet.
Our silver rating means we divert a minimum of 90 percent of our waste for reuse, recycling, composting and recovery for use in nature or the economy. Our initiatives include having one of our offices go entirely paperless, and expanding and labelling our waste and recycling system to divert efficiently. Certification is a rigorous process, and each year we submit 12 months of data for scientific evaluation by Green Business Certification Inc., a global, third-party credentialing body.
