CAFP National Conference-Niagara Falls
We were thrilled to be invited to speak at the recent National CAFP Conference (Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals) May 25-27th in beautiful Niagara Falls, amongst many great friends and peers. Being a member with CAFP for many years, Andrea truly values the support of fellow colleagues, connecting with members represented from across the country that work in all facets of this great industry.
The story of Nature Knows was shared with Andrea’s overview of how she began her personal journey to begin the exciting leap into entrepreneurship leaving the big corporate roles she enjoyed for over 16 years. Helping to launch and become a partner with Helmut Leili, they are very pleased with the outpouring of support and encouragement with their mission of Nature Knows. Helping Canadians to eat well on the go. Andrea spoke about the great need to help improve all of our health, to ensure our meals have at least 5 portions of fruits and veggies a day. That begins with a focus to educate our families and schools teaching kids about nutrition.
Nature Knows also recognized the need for simplicity with packaging and the challenge with limited healthy items that are convenient. Andrea further explained their uniquely designed compostable packaging, to ensure ultimate quality and freshness. Helmut spent many years to create, after many prototypes to formulate the special breathable window and allows the produce to circulate. Being washed and ready to eat, Nature Knows provides an easy to eat, no mess solution to enjoy on the go. Perfect for all ages, and all sectors of the industry Andrea explained some of their strategies to help support tailored solutions. For Foodservice operators in QSR, Family or Fast Casual, to Schools, Airlines, Contract Catering to HMR, Gas and Convenience to Direct home delivery. And perfect for hotel meetings and events, where samples were shared throughout the conference. Attendees appreciated the good choice to keep their energy during their many educational events.
Thank you CAFP National team for having us!
