The Mary’s Gone Crackers® seed was planted the day Mary discovered the power to create amazingly good snacks using only whole, plant-based ingredients. The popularity of her tasty crackers quickly spread far beyond her kitchen, inspiring her to walk away from a successful career to follow her passion.

Today, we continue to build on Mary’s original creations with new and exciting flavors baked with ingredients you can actually see—making each cracker a unique window into our love of seed-craft. Eat them right out of the box or get creative with your favorite toppings to build your own taste bud adventure!

DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS

Mary's Gone Crackers - Always Organic

Always Cruelty Free

We Support Non-GMO

Always Organic

ALL ORGANIC. NO COMPROMISE.

You’ll see the word “organic” on a lot of packaging these days. Ours is no exception. But you should know what organic stands for when used by Mary’s Gone Crackers. First of all, it means no pesticides, no synthetic fertilizers, no GMOs. (Organic is always non-GMO, but non-GMO doesn’t have to be organic.)

Secondly, if you see anything in our ingredients list that isn’t organic, it simply means it’s not commercially available as organic, such as salt, xanthan gum and the leavening agents we use like baking soda and calcium carbonate. That said, if any of our ingredients exists organically, we source it.

Always Cruelty Free

ALWAYS CRUELTY FREE

We are committed to ensuring our products align with a dietary view that embraces the welfare of all living things.

While our Kookies are made with sustainably sourced honey harvested with the well-being of bees in mind, all other ingredients in our products are vegan, containing no meat, dairy, eggs or anything derived from animals.

WE SUPPORT NON-GMO

Nature provides us with all the unique, hearty and nutritious ingredients we need to create delicious food. Combine this rich heritage with our fresh, open-minded approach to new tastes and textures and there’s really no end to our discovery of healthful delights. Please consider every Mary’s product you enjoy a testament to the goodness and sustainability of a non-GMO future.

GMOs alter the genetic structure of crops and although it is made inviting with greater yields and short-sighted monetary gain, what we don’t know about their lasting effects is enough for Mary’s to stick with non-GMO products.

PRO-PLANTS AND SEED CRAFTED

We believe in keeping ingredients in their whole form whenever possible to maximize their nutrient power.

A whole food is one that is minimally refined or processed. Whole foods are of the earth, naturally flavorful and complex while providing an abundant source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Most of our Crackers are packed with ingredients you can see—like quinoa, brown rice, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds—then cut and baked to crunchy perfection.

PLANT-BASED PROTEIN

We are proud of our Super Seed crackers that serve up 5 grams of plant-based protein in every serving. Our protein is derived from the ancient grains and seeds themselves – unlike other products that add a protein isolate.

Protein Isolates are exactly what they sound like. Either through the use of industrial solvents, ionization or very fine mesh screens, protein amino acids are separated from all the other nutrients, fiber and healthy fats that whole foods contain. Whole foods provide more than just protein.

STATE-OF-THE-ART BAKERY

Our state-of-the-art bakery is supported by an on-site research and development kitchen and quality assurance testing lab. This is to ensure each cracker meets our high standards of roasty, toasty perfection.

California Ricelands Waterbirds Foundation

 

The California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation is a partnership between rice farmers and waterbird conservation groups. Working closely with the California Rice Commission, the Foundation encourages the adoption of farming practices that benefit waterbirds. At Mary’s Gone Crackers, we’re in our second decade of partnership with the Foundation. In this role, not only do we source much of the rice we bake into our crackers from California Rice Commission farmers, we provide ongoing support to the California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation as it pursues its vital mission.

Wildlife conservation programs managed by the California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation and the California Rice Commission have effectively transformed hundreds of thousands of acres of rice fields into seasonal wetland habitats for waterbirds.

“Corporate sustainability has become increasingly critical in this day and age,” said Paul Buttner, the Foundation’s Chairman & Executive Director. “It’s companies like Mary’s Gone Crackers that remain committed to sustainable manufacturing practices year after year who will have a positive and tangible impact on the environment.”

California’s ricelands provide habitats for over 200 species of wildlife, including several of conservation concern. These ricelands also support millions of birds that migrate up and down the Pacific Flyway, a migratory corridor extending from the Arctic down to Patagonia. When managed properly, these fields can provide a fortifying domain for a wide variety of species all year long.

Mary’s Gone Crackers plans to continue sourcing rice and other ingredients sustainably to minimize our ecological footprint and achieve our long-standing goal of manufacturing delicious, sustainably sourced snacks.

Palm Done Right logo

Natural Habitats has created a movement to prove that palm oil can be grown for good, and show that when “done right,” can bring significant positive impact to the world.

That movement is called Palm Done Right®, and it brings together manufacturers, retailers and consumers to increase awareness around the environmental and social benefits of palm grown organically, with fair-trade practices, working with small farmers around the world.

It is the highest possible standard for palm oil, and goes above and beyond any other certification program, where animal habitats and rain forests are preserved, where farmers are empowered, where communities thrive, and the environment is nurtured.

We’re immensely proud to source the honey we use to make Mary’s Gone Kookies from GloryBee®—the family-owned and -operated business that started the SAVE the BEE® initiative, a partnership of researchers, beekeepers, businesses and consumers committed to protecting honeybee health. Now in the second generation of family leadership, GloryBee produces an impressive range of ethically sourced, natural and organic ingredients from their Pacific Northwest home base in Eugene, Oregon.

“Being a family business rooted in natural and organic foods is certainly a sustainability birthplace for us,” said GloryBee’s company president Alan Turanski. “It is something we’ve been inspired about from the beginning. Investing in sustainability has shown us the value in creating clearer, more distinctive partnerships with our clients who also care about it.”

As a Certified B Corporation, GloryBee strives to be a sustainability leader. Mary’s Gone Kookies donates a portion of our sales to support its mission as a sweet deed for the planet!

The gluten-free oat flour used in Mary’s Gone Kookies Graham-style Snacks is not your everyday oats. We sought a special variety of oats with better nutrition and less environmental impact.
As the cheeky name implies, SowNaked™ oats lack an outer hull when they’re harvested, leaving them—well—naked. Traditional oats require a significant amount of energy to steam and remove the hulls before they can be flaked or milled. In contrast, SowNaked™ oats skip that step entirely, resulting in a 50% reduction in carbon emissions through transportation and energy savings.

To put that in perspective, the carbon emissions savings on a 5,000-acre field of SowNaked™ oats is 200,000 lbs. less than a field of traditional oats. That equates to the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by 20 cars driven for an entire year!

We’re happy to move away from your everyday oats, and we hope you are too.
