Moms Making Food Their Business
In honor of Mother’s Day we want to feature and celebrate some amazing mom entrepreneurs who have started and run their own family businesses.
Founded by a mother-daughter team, Val and Breezy spent years perfecting SkinnyDipped almonds, the first in their line of balanced, healthy and delicious snacks. They are passionate about sharing their tasty, nutritious and clean food with everyone.
As their company has grown, they have remained committed to environmental sustainability and raising up and supporting women and children in communities around the globe. SkinnyDipped has donated more than 600,000 bags to women’s shelters and after school programs and thousands more to hospitals, food banks and schools.
Toby began her business adventures in the 1970s with the support of her family and a $300 loan from a local “hippie” credit union. Her goal was to nourish her children with food made from real ingredients and to make vegetables irresistible. Motivated by one of her sons having severe food allergies, Toby was soon sharing her food at family gatherings, with friends, and at the Eugene, Oregon Saturday Market.
The community clamored for Toby to sell her versatile products and restaurants were requesting this new “ranch” salad dressing. Fast forward to today, and still made one small batch at a time from locally sourced ingredients, Toby’s Family Foods’ plant based spreads and dips are as popular as ever.
Rosa Li took inspiration for her line of sparkling beverages from the tonics her Chinese grandmother brewed when she was a child. Remembering how they would soothe her stomach and lift her spirits Rosa re-imagined the healing drinks of her heritage, combining herbal wisdom with gut-healing superfoods and whimsical flavors to create Wildwonder.
Sharing the benefits of probiotic and prebiotic botanicals remains her passion as Rosa creates wellness drinks for all to enjoy. Plus 5% of Wildwonder’s profits go towards empowering women and marginalized communitiesAs a mom of two gluten-sensitive daughters, Stef made it her mission to create organic gluten-free snacks that were nutrient-dense, delicious and satisfying. Starting in her home kitchen in 2012, Stef realized that people were constantly falling off their path to wellness with poor snack choices and Tosi (“true” in Finnish) became a reality.
Committed to sustainability, all their boxes, trays and shipping materials are 100% recyclable and every order plants a tree through their partnership with Greenspark. They plant native and diverse trees in Central America, giving local ecosystems sustainable growth and supporting local communities.
