Our guiding principles

  • Keeping it real

    We tell it like it is. Facts, not fluffs. From our ingredients and processes, to the way we treat each other and others, we keep it real and raw.

  • Fueled by Integrity

    We do it right, right from the start. With obsessive detail, we don't cut corners so you know what you're getting is our best. And if we make a mistake, we make it right.

  • Honouring Independence

    We don’t conform to fads, trends or peer pressure. We stay true to our roots and don't think it's our place to tell others what to do. You do you and we'll do us.

  • Playfulness

    We explore, experiment, create, laugh and play like no one is watching! Life is meant to be lived fully. So get every last bite out of it.

Each ingredient is meticulously chosen, what we put in is as important as what we leave out.

Our Roots

Michelle Kopman

Mother Raw's roots grew from a single seed planted by Michelle Kopman in 2010 out of frustration with salad dressings on the market. Her burning question was, 'Why can't salad dressing be as healthy as my salad?'. Michelle created her line of dressings from unprocessed whole foods, respecting the best of Mother Earth. She was a trailblazer of organic, plant-based and unadulterated natural foods, and was uncompromising on ingredients. She recognized the beauty and power of plants and believed that what we put on our plants, could be as healthy as the plants themselves. Mother Raw stays true to these roots.
