Jiva Thai is a privately-owned business spinned off from an intention to help improve the life of farmers, producers and entreprenuers in rural areas.  Our goal is to create a more sustainable livelihood for our staff, growers, and suppliers who are entrepreneurs and people living in developing countries.  We also try our best to support fair-wage and fair-trade practices.  We believe in a healthy diet and life-style and the idea of well-being for all. That is why our products are made from natural and organic ingredients. 

What's in the name? 'Jiva' in Sanskrit means alive and healthy, cause of life, the vital energy of life.  In a spiritual explanation, Jiva means the immortal essence of a living organism (including humans, animals, plants, etc), and the aggregate of all life, unit, or organism.  We pronounce the word 'Jee-va'.
