When we first met, Alex knew my contagious energy and love for people would change the world. Our belief that everyone should have access to healthy food is what inspired Love Grown to not just be a product on the shelves, but to be a company that will make a difference. The idea for Love Grown first came about while we were undergraduates at the University of Denver. Alex knew he always wanted to start his own company, and with my passion for cooking and background in nutrition, we started to lay the foundation for what was to come.
We believe in making great tasting foods with clean and simple ingredients. We believe that healthy foods should be available to as many people as possible. Our goals go far beyond one product line and one category. We are here to change the way people think about food, eat food, and ultimately buy food.
Love Grown is inspired by love and powered by nutrition.
