Interview with Natalie Dueck, President of Rawnata
LCG Foods sat down with Rawnata's President, Natalie Dueck, and asked her 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?
I was motivated to start my company out of a desire to provide high quality, nutrient-dense snacks rich in Omega 3's, protein, and fibre. My own health was greatly improved when I began to eat better, and so I wanted to share some of what I'd learned with other people on a similar journey. I want people to be able to live longer and to feel better, and by providing healthy snacks, I can help to make that happen.
What are your company’s core values?
We believe that changing what you eat can change YOU!- and that's why our company name is coined from the Latin word "renata", which means "reborn". We use simple, functional, primarily organic and/or local ingredients, most notably flax and hemp hearts, because of their amazing nutritional benefits.
