Our founder, John Hopkins, began selling his homemade broths at farmer's markets in 2016. From day one, the company's mission has been about making real, fresh (refrigerated), flavorful, intensely nutritious broths using time-honored techniques and locally sourced ingredients. Developed in collaboration with a chef and nutritionist, our bone broths are simmered for hours to ensure that we extract all the vital proteins, collagen, vitamins, and nutrients from our ingredients in order to maximize its health-boosting qualities. Our broths are not just good for you; they are good for the planet. Five Way Foods is proud to use locally-sourced ingredients from trusted suppliers for our delicious and healthful broths. We work closely with New England-based farms and fishermen to source quality bones, vegetables and herbs while minimizing food waste by up-cycling bones…. material which otherwise would be discarded.
