Tyler's story

Hummii started earlier this year in January as a fun and healthy way for ourselves and friends to cool off while living in Puerto Rico. We have always been passionate about nutrition, exercise, and helping to connect the surrounding community. I grew up in Upstate NY where our family business, Phillips Hardware, has served the region since 1886. Helping out in the family business and observing our father as he adapted to new macro & micro-challenges taught us a lot about perseverance and hard work. Additionally, social entrepreneurship has always been another passion as our educational background is in business (with finance & accounting degrees from the University of Maryland) and we worked with sustainable startups & NGOs (like The Mission Continues & Team Rubicon) while living in Puerto Rico. These interests have merged to help form Hummii with the mission to make healthy lifestyles fun & engaging for families everywhere. The Hummii team and I are motivated to help others unleash their potential with the power of plants. Through unique products like popsicles, power pudding, and mighty muffins we aim to make it Easy and Fun to snack on plant-powered foods!
