We seek to be an active member in our community, partnering with other small businesses, and giving where we can. In these challenging times, it is all the more important that we stand together and help one another through. See some of our highlights below, and follow #zimtgives for more!

Zimt stands for more than just its baked goods. We proudly source everything from ingredients to packaging to kitchen equipment from companies that are dedicated to sustainability and equity, locally sourcing wherever possible. We are dedicated to reducing waste from start to finish by using fully compostable packaging and a host of reusable items in the kitchen.
For ingredients we are not able to source locally like spices and chocolate, we look to labels like Fair Trade to ensure equity throughout our final product
With a resounding commitment to sustainability and equitably sourced and farmed cocoa, Guittard is our chocolatier of choice.
Dairy products are sourced from this family creamery, where the wellbeing and happiness of cows is number one!
Eggs are sourced from local sustainable growers where chickens are truly pasture raised. We love seeing which flock our latest dozen came from!
We ship through Sendle, which means 100% carbon neutral shipping through their partnership with South Pole to fund conservation efforts.
100% compostable packaging is sourced from If You Care, which has a host of sustainability focused certification labels including FSC and BPI.
Our labels and marketing materials are printed through Greenprinter, the leading sustainable printing company in California. They are carbon-neutral, use 100% recycled paper, and non-toxic soy inks--not as an option but by default!
Produce is sourced from local organic growers.
We use a variety of products in our kitchen to reduce our waste, including reusable piping bags, silicone baking mats, and beeswax wrap
