How ethical is Loma Linda?

Loma Linda is a food brand which has a good score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Vegan & Vegetarian Foods Ratings Table.

With an above-benchmark GSG score, Loma Linda can be considered an ethical brand. Loma Linda hasn’t yet applied for Ethical Accreditation, but its high score would mean that if it did, it would be able to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark on its products.

We encourage other companies in the Ethical Vegan & Vegetarian Foods sector to follow Loma Linda’s example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What does Loma Linda do?

Loma Linda is a brand of vegetarian and vegan foods produced by the Atlantic Natural Foods Company of Nashville. The brand began in 1905 as The Sanitarium Food Company and was owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church until 1990.

In which areas does Loma Linda perform well?

Loma Linda performs well for its Environmental Report, as the company is centred around sustainable and plant-based products. It also gets a top score for GM as it has a non-GMO statement on its site, and Vegetarian as it is certified by The Vegan Society.

We found no criticisms of Loma Linda relating to; Nuclear, Fossil Fuels, Animal Welfare, Political Donations or Armaments, therefore the brand scores well for these criteria. Find out more about how we rate.

What can Loma Linda do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Loma Linda is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Vegan & Vegetarian Foods Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria. As Loma Linda already receives a top score in the Ethical Vegan & Vegetarian Foods sector, we encourage it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation, after which it will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide Ethical Mark.

However we would also encourage Loma Linda to gain Organic certification  in order to improve its score. If it applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.

Were you aware that your brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation? If accredited by The Good Shopping Guide, brands can display our Ethical Mark, showcasing to consumers that it is an ethical and sustainable supplier.
