Who We Are...

Erin Olivari,

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 at NYU she realized the importance of a plant-based diet for the health of our bodies and for our planet.  At this time she became dairy-intolerant had to give up the beloved cheese.  After moving to Hawaii (and greatly missing a cheese plate) Erin started working on cheese alternatives using tree nuts that were simple and satisfying.  Tree nuts have a similar fat, protein, and carbohydrate combination 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!
