Cinnamon Sticks, Ceylon Organic 1#
Fair Trade, organic cinnamon sticks—a fun addition to hot beverages and potpourris. Ceylon sticks are harvested from an evergreen that grows 30-60′ in height, with light brown, papery leaves, reaching as much as 7″ in length with delicate white-yellow flowers in the summer. The bark, comprised of long, slender phloem fibers (less that 30 mm thick), is harvested from a tree every other year. After harvest, the bark is allowed to ferment for 24 hours, before the outer bark is scraped away leaving behind the delicate inner bark, that easily breaks into splintery fragments under light pressure. Ceylon sticks taste spicy, sweet, and delicate with much more gourmet flair than that of common cinnamon.

We’re driven by a simple purpose: to do good by our people and planet. And to create a stronger company built on a commitment to quality and sustainability.
Frontier Co-op began as a two-person operation in 1976 in a river cabin in Eastern Iowa. Since then we‘ve grown steadily to become a major supplier to the natural products industry. Our success throughout the years reflects our close harmony with the product needs and the values of our members and consumers.
Frontier Co-op was one of the first suppliers to actively advocate organic products and organic agriculture — and we’re thrilled with the strong and steady growth of organics in the natural products, and now mainstream, marketplace. We carried our first organic products in 1978, and became a certified organic processor as soon as that program was available.
You can trust our products. We have the skills resources necessary to find and buy top botanical products from around the world — and to make sure that those products have no adulteration, fillers or questionable ingredients.
We’re committed to the health and welfare of the environment and all the people involved with producing and consuming our botanical products. .
