CHEW

PUSH, FAIL, LEARN, REPEAT

a chef, author and whitehouse trailblazer…

Sounds like the start of a joke?

Admittedly it’s an eclectic assortment of skills, but it’s definitely no joke. With a central core in food sciences, our uniquely assembled team instinctively understands the chemistry and relationships behind flavors, ingredients and shelf stability.

This allows our hybrid Product Developers to invent entirely new techniques and processes to achieve what was originally thought to be impossible.

We are the sum of our parts…
