Our story begins in the magnificent lands of Peru, where our founders, sisters Mariella and Lia, were born. They learned about the ancient Incas and their predecessors at a young age, and how their ancestors worshipped the land and developed some of the most sophisticated agricultural systems of our time. From the very beginning, the sisters believed in the direct correlation between the strength and hard work of the Inca farmers, and the vitality that what is known today as superfoods gave them as a result.
In 1988, Mariella moved to Canada and started a family, while Lia remained in Peru and eventually opened an organic and gluten-free bakery with her daughters. It was Lia’s tenacity and passion for natural, organic products that connected her to sustainable local farmers and food suppliers, eventually leading her to integrate these natural superfoods into her product offering.
