What inspired your company and/or product?
The desire to bring innovation and creative thinking to our country. Also, our understanding of the value of organic and all natural food, not only for people, but for the planet. we believe that "less is more" and that Nature has millions of years of experience perfecting everything she does. Thats why we look pretty close at what mother Nature does and how she does it.
