SIMPLi Beans are Regenerative Organic Certified®!

Gigante beans are quite literally “giant” white runner beans. Our gigantes are sourced directly from the mountains of Kastoria, Greece where they are a Protected Geographic Ingredient (PGI). Grown and cultivated locally for thousands of years, we work with generational farmers who are experts in these heirloom beans. They are full of buttery flavor and have a melt-in-your-mouth creamy texture, making them the basis for many iconic Northern Greek dishes. Gigantes are perfect for soaking up spices in your favorite brothy bean dishes, and can easily be swapped for other white beans in your favorite recipes. They contain 13g of fiber per serving, high levels of protein, essential minerals, and are low in fat. They are a unique addition to any bean lover’s pantry!

Sourcing location: Kastoria, Greece

More About the Maker: SIMPLi is a modern ingredients company ethically sourcing the highest quality single-origin ingredients while tackling fraudulent international supply chains, combating climate change and improving the livelihoods of farmers and their communities. Launched in 2020, SIMPLi co-founders Matt Cohen and Sarela Herrada, a Peruvian native, sought out to bring the best single-origin ingredients from around the world to consumers kitchens in a way that equally benefits farmers, the environment, and consumers. Unlike traditional ingredients companies, SIMPLi owns its supply chain, working directly with growers in countries like Peru and Greece to ensure each product meets the strictest quality standards. SIMPLi transitions profits traditionally benefited by middlemen within the supply chain back to the farmers it works with. SIMPLi is a Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC™) and Fair For Life Certified company. SIMPLi is the first ingredients brand to achieve ROC™ in South America for its quinoa and beans. These certifications guarantee that SIMPLi’s farming partners receive fair compensation and their communities are uplifted economically. They also ensure customers receive more delicious, nutrient-dense products that are ethically sourced and promote environmental stewardship. SIMPLi provides ingredients to leading brands in the natural food industry and can be found in natural grocery stores across the nation.
