Megan Farina is the Senior Communications Manager at Nutiva, an organic superfood company that makes coconut, hemp, chia, and red palm products. Nutiva is on a mission to Revolutionize the Way the World Eats, by building a healthy, just, sustainable food system. This means starting with organic, non-GMO farming— done without chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
Nutiva donates 1% of sales (more than $3 million to date), to support sustainable agricultural programs — everything from food advocacy organizations to urban gardens.
Megan’s early struggle with health issues and food allergies sparked a passion for cooking, nutrition, alternative medicine, and mindfulness practices. She reclaimed her health through eating clean, organic, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods. Megan studied English Literature and is an avid writer and reader. Her love of story combined with the deeply held belief that healthy food has the power to heal, brought her to Nutiva. Her role involves educating and empowering consumers on key issues like the benefits of organics, GMO labeling, the legalization of industrial hemp in the U.S., and the difference between sustainable palm oil and conflict palm oil. Megan believes that we all must participate in reclaiming our food system because the future of our planet depends on it.
