Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism

Onset Worldwide has officially been certified as a partner in the C-TPAT program! 

The Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program is a voluntary supply chain security program, launched by US Customs and Border Protection in 2001. The partnerships allow for better risk assessment and establishes clear supply chain security criteria for members to meet. Applicants must address a broad range of security topics and provide procedural documentation. Certified members are considered to be of low risk, and are therefore less likely to be examined at the US port of entry. For more details check out their website here

Freedom Delivered

Onset Worldwide has teamed up with Freedom Delivered to share important healthy eating information with our respective audiences.

Freedom Delivered is an online retailer that sells a variety of gluten free products to individual customers. Freedom Delivered’s parent company, Free Brands, started with marketing its own all-purpose flour and baking mixes in 2009. These products are currently sold under the brand names “Baking Free” and “Positively Free” and are marketed exclusively on the FreedomDelivered.com site.

As an ingredients supplier to manufacturers, contract packaging companies, commercial bakeries, and other companies who source large volumes of bulk ingredients, Onset Worldwide has a different audience than Freedom Delivered.  When Freedom Delivered offered to share helpful information about chia with their customer base of 30,000, we enthusiastically agreed to participate.

Tom Andrews, co-founder of Freedom Delivered:

“Thank you for the opportunity to explain to your audience about our company, with our goal of finding one or more healthy eating companies to team up with. In developing our online presence for our Positively Free and Baking Free brands, we have discovered that other food companies might benefit from what we do online.

We’ve been a bit of a unique company from the beginning—selling 5lb bags of flour exclusively online is not “normal” in any way. However, this was the path we chose and through the years, we’ve gotten good at things that many food companies don’t prioritize. For example, we successfully identify and create trial for gluten free customers—over 10,000 new ones last year. We are good at online order taking and fulfillment. We communicate with customers and provide them with important lifestyle and product information—ebooks, newsletters, blogs, social networking and the like. 

We recently tested the idea of teaming with other food companies with the importers of Le Veneziane gluten free pasta. The test has gone tremendously well for both companies, so we are looking to do more of that.

We are looking to team up with gluten free food companies in ways that go far beyond a simple supplier/customer relationship—companies that would benefit from our experience at creating an online presence. Our current target list includes companies that make gluten free nutrition bars, granolas, pretzels, crackers, ready to eat “travel” foods, and flour tortillas. I’m happy to discuss a variety of ways to work together.”

Chia Oil

We have stock of 20 Liter jugs of chia oil at our NJ warehouse. Chia oil is used in both the food and cosmetic industries.

The omega 3 in chia seed oil helps nourish the skin and maintain moisture, relieving dryness and irritation.

Chia oil is also a good replacement to fish oil because of it’s high levels of omega 3, DHA and EPA. Chia oil is also commonly used in salad dressings and smoothies. Chia oil is not to be used for cooking, due to it’s low burning point. 

Defatted Chia Flour

We have stock of organic defatted chia flour! 

The flour is obtained from 100% seeds of Salvia Hispanica that has had most of the fat removed. The manufacturing of the product takes place under a controlled process by mechanical cold press, preserving the quality of the product.

Chia flour can be used as a nutritional supplement. It has a subtle and slightly nutty flavor. A dosage varies from person to person. Use Chia Flour in a wide variety of gluten-free recipes as 1-to-1 replacement for wheat flours or others flours. Mix in with foods like yogurt, oatmeal or shakes for extra fiber, protein, minerals and antioxidants.

In one lot’s nutritional test, our organic defatted chia flour has 29.3 grams of protein, 7 grams of fat, and 53.6 grams of fiber per 100 grams.
