Azuluna Farms use holistic, regenerative production practices that ensure the restoration and preservation of the land on which we raise livestock¹.
Our animals graze on pasture and are strategically rotated through paddocks, allowing for optimal vegetative regrowth and soil regeneration².
Not only does this benefit the land, but the animals as well - our livestock consume more nutrient-dense vegetation in a system that allows for the full expression of their natural behaviors³.
Additionally, our animals are never exposed to antibiotics⁴, hormones⁵, or GMO feed⁶.

At Azuluna Foods, we believe the foundation of health is nutritious and flavor-forward food, but we know how busy life can get. That is why Azuluna chefs curate convenient, seasonally-minded meals that are ready to eat in minutes: health without the hassle.
Azuluna recipes are crafted by classically trained chefs who collaborate with our team of dietitians to deliver nutrient dense meals that fuel your active lifestyle, optimizing health while prioritizing flavor.
All dishes are free of gluten⁷, soy⁸, GMOs⁶, and refined sugar⁹.
Our meals are responsibly sourced, featuring proteins from Azuluna Foods regenerative farms and sustainably sourced seafood. Whenever possible, our produce is sourced from local and/or organic producers, prioritizing small supply chains and conscientious growers.
