About us:

The Chosen Foods story began seven years ago with the launch of our Avocado Oil, a revolutionary everyday cooking oil loaded with vitamin E and antioxidants that took the cooking world by storm. Since then, we've been on a rapid growth trajectory.

At Chosen Foods we believe in the power of real food to nourish ourselves, our families and our communities. From our beginnings with the avocado we created a new way of cooking and eating. It's rooted in ingredients that are both fresh and ancient. It's brought forth in a beautiful collision of cultures and a shared love of eating wholesomely. From the farmers we know and support in Mexico, to the kitchen we cook lunch in every day in our San Diego office, it adds up to a joyous and delicious celebration of nourishment. We want to spread that sun-soaked magic to the world, and everyone who has chosen to improve their lives. You can count on us to make the foods that make it easy to choose health, sustainability, and great taste.
