Interview with Mario Sica, President of NutiLight
LCG Foods sat down with NutiLight's President, Mario Sica, and asked him 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?
My wife and I were born in Venezuela from Italian parents, which is why we were never missing a bottle of Nutella at our tables. Unfortunately, Venezuela 19 years ago fell into the hands of Dictators. My wife and I decided to immigrate to USA in 2011, with 2 goals to achieve:
1. Create a family. We have 1 boy of 7 years old and 2 girls of 4 years old.
2. Create a company with my background in mind and a very clear vision. I created an alternative to Nutella that allows all people to eat healthy for a better living. NutiLight was born!
What are your company’s core values?
The values of our company are family and respect for others. With that in mind, we have been able to create an excellent product called NutiLight, which makes us eat healthy for a better living.
If you could tell a retailer three things about what makes your brand different, what would they be?
We are committed to providing excellent chocolate products that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of the health-conscious sector of Canada's population.
a. NutiLight offers a nutritious guilt-free chocolate indulgence, because it is sugar free. NutiLight is perfect for consumers who want to avoid and reduce sugar.
b. NutiLight is gluten free and low in net carbs, low in calories, and loaded with fibre that helps you stay fit and healthy.
c. NutiLight is ideal for an increasingly health-conscious market. It suits the keto diet, paleo diet, diabetics and people with celiac disease.
What are some of the challenges that you’ve overcome to bring your business to its current state?
Achieving a formula with the best and healthiest ingredients possible, that combined with each other to make an excellent flavour. Finding the right distributors for our products and staying committed to our goal of eating healthy for a better living.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I play soccer at least 2 times a week, and the rest of the time I'm accompanying my son to his soccer and my daughters to gymnastics.
