Chiarezza! Organic Chia Cereal
Tell us about your business.We are parents of a little girl with multiple food allergies. We discovered many foods our daughter ate were produced on allergen contaminated equipment or facility, which lead to constant skin breakouts and many sleepless nights in Seattle. We decided it was best if we made her food ourselves. The cereal had no name and our girl happily ate it for a couple years before we brought it to market and shared it with America. The word CHIAREZZA in Italian means clarity & pure. Clean & pure describes exactly the characteristics of every ingredient in our cereals. We think the name is perfect! Did you know that 1 in 13 US children have food allergies, and 1 in 133 Americans have Celiacs disease? We are extremely pleased to be able to provide such a nutrient dense cereal line that caters to people with dietary restrictions as well as everyone else seeking real, whole foods. We have goals to create more exciting flavors & have nationwide distribution.
