We understand that ethical food sourcing and traceability is important to you. It’s important to us too! We are a purpose-based company whose mission is to advance regenerative farming practices by providing a pathway to market for Western Australian regenerative farmers.
Our Dirty Clean Food farmers use regenerative farming methods that bring plants, animals, natural cycles, and the soil back to life. The healthy ecosystem sucks carbon out of the atmosphere, instead of putting more in. Their holistic management also ensures animal welfare and protects people and communities.
We understand that the pathway to regenerative isn’t an instant one and in some cases, not possible at all (seafood is one example). In these cases, to provide you with a comprehensive range of grocery items, we have developed minimum criteria to choose the most ethical / sustainable option available to help you eat better, while providing transparency about where your food comes from.
Our criteria and minimum requirements
Our 3 minimum criteria are outlined below:
Farming (Minimum of 1)
- Regenerative (preferred)
A combination of farming principles and practices that increase biodiversity, enrich soils, restore watersheds, and enhance ecosystem services. Regenerative agriculture helps current global trends of atmospheric accumulation of carbon by drawing carbon back down into the soil, offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, and higher health and vitality for farming communities.

Seafood: Sustainable seafood as per the Marine Stewardship Council and Fins definition:
Sustainable seafood means it has been caught in a way that means there is plenty more fish in the sea now and in the future.
