At Moonshot, we’re on a mission to tackle climate change through snacking. Our climate-friendly crackers are perfect for pairing and come in three delicious flavors: Sourdough Sea Salt, Rosemary Garlic, and Tomato Basil. To us, climate-friendly means we make all of our decisions with the climate in mind, from our ingredients to our packaging. Moonshot is made with regeneratively grown ingredients, like our organic heirloom wheat directly from Hedlin Farms in Washington. We are certified organic, non-GMO, plant-based, kosher, carbon-neutral, no sugar added, in a 100% recycled carton, and proud to be a certified woman-owned and minority-owned business.
