A little about us
You may be wondering who we are. We are the Guzmans. Our family of four moved from Bogotá, Colombia to Charlotte, North Carolina in 1994. In 2011, our daughter fell very ill. Many opinions and treatments later, we still didn’t know what was wrong so we took her to a holistic nutritionist who recommended some drastic dietary changes. Her body began to heal. From this experience, we learned the importance of whole food nutrition and became passionate about eating healthy. So passionate, that we launched our own line of healthy snacks.
On a mission to redefine snacking
In June, we celebrated one year since our first container of plantain and cassava strips arrived in the U.S. from Colombia. It has been a whirlwind year. We’re now in several retailers, airports and recently celebrated our products getting into Whole Foods in Charlotte and Huntersville. There’s much more in store for us and we hope you’ll follow along our journey on this blog.
For now, we’ll leave you with a recent video about our company. We happen to love it and hope you will too.
