Tobias's story

I came to the United States from a small rural town in Germany where I grew up in my early twenties for school and stayed to fulfill my dream of opening my own business that provides something truly unique to the local community. Being passionated about living an active and healthy lifestyle, I always tried to convince my friends and family to live a healthier life as well as I believe that makes them not only healthier but happier in the long run. I've learned that many find it difficult to find truly healthy alternatives to their favorite foods in traditional grocery stores. Therefore I've started my own business that focuses on providing affordable, healthy snacks that are not only nutritious but delicious as well. Seeing customers and friends enjoy our products makes me truly happy and motivates me.
