Founded in 1981 in Akron, Ohio by Margaret and Phillip Nabors, we are a family owned and operated business.

We are pioneers in this work that began over 30 years ago with our strict ingredient standards—no artificial colors, flavorings or harmful chemical preservatives, no saccharin or aspartame, no irradiated foods, meats raised without the use of growth hormones and never fed animal by-products—and we continue our leadership today.

Our children are all involved in the business and are preparing to lead in the future. Our daughter Marcella serves in an advisory capacity, and our sons Abraham and Gabe have joined our management team full-time. Both completed their undergraduate degrees from Ohio University, Abraham majoring in environmental geography and Gabe in finance business administration. We are very proud of all of our children.

Mustard Seed Market & Café is the largest locally-owned retailer of natural and organic products in Ohio. We’ve been part of the community since 1981—a locally-owned family business—our specialty is providing high quality natural and organic foods along with education and information on food issues and the environment.

Why You Should Get Involved
with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
  • Our market, due to palm oil’s versatility and functionality as an ingredient, lifting product quality and performance.

Together, we can influence change for:

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
