Our products do good, but are they good for you? Absolutely!
That’s what makes Amazi unique — our commitment to making you feel good doesn’t stop at the source. What’s the point of mindfully making snacks that are anything but? We’re committed to handcrafting products that are just as good for you as they are “good” by nature — as nutrient dense as can be and designed with you and your health in mind.
I studied abroad and did my thesis research in Uganda. While living there, I was blown away by their organic tropical fruits, bursting with flavors unlike back at home. But stand after stand, people traded fruits raw or looked for cheap ways of processing or exporting. I had heard stories about cocoa farmers never seeing a chocolate bar. This anecdote sums up a lot about our supply chains as a whole.
Those at the resource were completely separate from the opportunity and innovation that existed in the global market—resulting in high unemployment and food waste. Meanwhile, back at home, consumers looking for products that serve a higher purpose, there was a huge opportunity missed not only for local industry and job creation, but also to satisfy a growing need for US consumers.
My solution was to connect this ingenuity, drive, and bounty with folks who crave both good food AND story—presumably, YOU! We now source directly from farmers, keep production in country by partnering with Ugandan businesses. Together, our 100% made-in-Uganda products build skills, market access, and create connection in our supply chains.
Thank you so much for choosing Amäzi and joining our mindful mission. It means the world to me! Happy snacking! RD
