Ever wonder who makes your favorite snacks? The hands that dry roast those delicious plantain chips, and flavor the jackfruit chews of your dreams?
Those mysterious hands belong to our production team that works hard at our factory, NeGonja, in Zirobwe, Uganda to bring you the snacks you know and love.
Our founder, Renee, visited our team in UG earlier this month and had the chance to interview some of the people that make Amazi Foods possible. Awesome, right? Yeah- we know. Read some of their stories below!
Plantains are generally absent from the traditional American palate, and yet they are wildly popular in cultures around the globe, in a variety of different dishes. Here at Amazi, we are bringing this powerhouse prebiotic fruit from our farmers in Uganda into mainstream U.S. diets via our dried and roasted plantain chips!
At Amazi, our intention to give is inherent to our business model. We decided to use Giving Tuesday as an opportunity to hold ourselves accountable and share some of the ways in which we’ve worked to increase impact over the past several months, and how we hope to improve in the year to come.
