Our Story

 
Founded by a husband-and-wife team, Yummari, Inc. started selling their products in 2011 to independent stores around the NYC area.

Catherine had been working as an underwriter in the marine insurance industry while Jason was working as a graphic designer in the pharmaceutical industry, but they wanted to make delicious and nutritious food that people who are on-the-go.

Their first product line was the Chia Charger health bites which were made by hand in a kitchen incubator in Queens, NY.

It is important to them that they make healthy gluten-free foods since Catherine was diagnosed with celiacs disease several years ago.

Get to Know Us

 
 
 
What inspires you?
People that have passion and work hard.
 
What is your favorite part about creating your products?
I was training for a couple bigger races and marathons and my wife was diagnosed with Celiac disease. By chance, I read "Born to Run" and learned about the diet and the activities of the Tarahumara Indians in the Copper Canyon and how they utilized the chia seeds.
 
What is the toughest part of your day?
Nothing
 
What was the best day in company history?
... It took close to about a year. We entered a food competition in New York called the Next Big Small Brand. There's a food fight between New York and San Francisco and entrants would submit their product and be interviewed by a panel of judges. Some 30 to 40 companies get narrowed down to six and then it was a live judging show. There was a judge who was a Whole Foods buyer in the Northeast region and she came by our booth ... we were nervous and overly excited and thinking, "This is great; maybe this will lead to something after the competition." And actually, we ended up winning first prize
 
What was the biggest decision you ever had to make?
Leaving our corporate jobs and going full in as entrepreneurs
 
Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?
Catherine and I see ourselves; growing the company and reaching new markets.
