Interview with Shani and Willy, Owners of hOMe Grown Living Foods
LCG Foods sat down with Home Grown's Owners, Shani and Willy, and asked them some questions to better understand the brand's vision, core values, and other topics that we thought potential retail partners would want to know.
What motivated you to start your company and create the products that we see today?
In her early 30s, Shani was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Being a health advocate for her entire life, this condition encouraged a deeper understanding of the alchemy of food and how it affects our bodies.
As an avid surfer, yogi and outdoor enthusiast, she was on the search for healthy on-the-go snacks and couldn’t find anything that met her dietary needs. This lead to the birth of hOMe Grown Living Foods. Stable blood sugar is her top priority, and Home Grown was created with this in mind.
What are your company’s core values?
Adaptability, Balanced Work/Life Approach, Integrity, Efficiency.
If you could tell a retailer three things about what makes your brand different, what would they be?
a. We are a small farm-based, family run business.
b. Our Keto-Friendly line is Nut-Free and Certified Organic.
c. All our other products are sprouted to increase bioavailability.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
We believe in finding a balance in everyday life. We enjoy doing outside of work and prioritize spending quality time with our families and friends. We do stay not only in our personal lives but also remain active in our communities.
