Our story

Rooted in the forest

“My grandmother would take me hiking in Taiwan’s mountain forests when I was little – we gathered leaves, seeds, and roots to take back to the kitchen. There she brewed soothing teas and told me about the health benefits of this leaf or that seed. I marveled at how the forest held such flavorful and nutritious things. This is where my love for nourishing, plant-based foods began. 

In Chinese, the character for 'forest' 森 is made of three of the characters for 'tree' 木. The vision of Three Trees is to cultivate a healthier world by making delicious and nourishing plant-based foods to help people make thoughtful everyday choices.”

– Jenny Eu, founder

Organic growth 

It’s 2013 and Three Trees’ fresh organic nutmilks debuted at farmer's markets and pop-ups. Local natural foods stores Rainbow Grocery and Bi-Rite in San Francisco recognized a truly good product and put Three Trees on shelves, even though it was a small brand. Today, Three Trees fresh organic nutmilks are stocked on shelves nationwide. Three Trees has grown organically, based on the quality of the product and word-of-mouth.

Food philosophy

Our food philosophy is to eat whole, unprocessed, nourishing foods. So we only use the best quality ingredients, straight from nature – and make the most nourishing and delicious nut and seed milks.
