How ethical is JustIngredients?

JustIngredients, an online groceries brand owned by WYE-APB Limited, is one of The Good Shopping Guide’s top-rated ethical brands. 

The brand receives an excellent Good Shopping Guide ethical score of 92 in our Ethical Sugar Ratings Table and therefore successfully passes our ethical benchmark.

We encourage other companies in the Sugar sector to follow JustIngredients’ example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

In which areas does JustIngredients perform well? 

JustIngredients performs well across our criteria for the Environment, Animals and People; the brand was founded to provide herbs, spices, oils, powders and tinctures that are GMO-free, organic and non-irradiated. Some of its products are also “suitable for vegan, vegetarian, nut-free and wheat-free diets.”

What makes JustIngredients so sustainable?

JustIngredients has a wide range of sustainable initiatives that further the brand’s ethical status. The brand only stocks ingredients that have been ethically sourced and is careful to work only with ethically and environmentally approved suppliers. 

It is worth noting that JustIngredient’s turmeric is 100% natural and has not been processed to enhance the amount of curcumin present in this spice. Curcumin is an active compound that naturally occurs in turmeric, and has many health benefits. However, curcumin is most effective and bio-available when it is consumed in its naturally occurring state; consumers should be wary of any brand that tries to sell you pure or ‘enhanced curcumin’ as they may be making false health benefit claims. JustIngredients’ turmeric contains only the amount of curcumin that naturally occurs in this spice!

How did JustIngredients attain Ethical Accreditation?

JustIngredients has attained Ethical Accreditation from The Good Shopping Guide. This involved an application process and a full review of the brand’s ethical policies and practices. JustIngredients is subject to an annual review to ensure the company maintains high ethical standards.

As a result, JustIngredients is permitted to use our Good Shopping Guide Ethical logo, which certifies the brand’s ethical status and allows consumers to recognise JustIngredients as an ethical brand.
