Interview with Julia Kirouac, President of Nud Fud
LCG Foods sat down with the President of Buff, Julia Kirouac, 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?
As a vegan holistic nutritionist, I found it difficult to find portable nutrition, where the food was super nutrient dense, tasted great, and everyone could eat it. So, I created my own that would have no sugar, no inflammatory ingredients, would be organic, vegan, and at the pinnacle of what packaged food could be, raw.
What are your company’s core values?
People, Planet and Profit.
If you could tell a retailer three things about what makes your brand different, what would they be?
a. We make our products in a way that is not industrialized. As in, we peel and chop our organic produce the way you would in your own kitchen.
b. Hand-made in Toronto and woman-owned and operated business.
c. We cover every single trend/category in the food industry (paleo, keto, vegan, organic, nut-free, sugar-free, non-GMO, etc).
What are some of the challenges that you’ve overcome to bring your business to its current state?
We are not done overcoming challenges yet! Problems don’t go away, they just become bigger as you grow! I think our biggest challenge has always been keeping up with demand and balancing production with the brand/sales/marketing side. It feels like running two businesses at once.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
When I am not consumed with work, which is never, I am usually with my husband, or my family and Golden Retriever as much as possible.
