Founder & CEO
Growing up in the agricultural mecca of California's central valley, there was no way around a love of food in its most natural state. After receiving her Bachelors of Science degree in Business Marketing from San Diego State University Erin moved east to New York City. It was there that she realized her true passion for diet, nutrition and food culture. She then received a Masters degree in Food Studies from New York University. During her studies she realized the importance of a plant-based diet for the health of our bodies and for our planet. Erin moved to Hawaii and started working on cheese alternatives using tree nuts that were healthy and sustainable. Tree nuts have a similar fat, protein, and carbohydrate combination and satiability as animal milk, but without the animal! Using locally grown Macadamia nuts to create a delicious vegan cheese has been a dream come true. We invite you to try our Macadamia Nut "Brie" and look forward to more varieties in the near future. Mahalo!
