Renee Dunn, Founder of Amazi

Our Mission

Amazi is a woman-owned mindful food company on a mission to help you Snack on Purpose - impeccably sourcing, crafting, and decluttering the crowded fruit snack category. Not only are all Amazi products minimally processed with clean ingredients, they're also rooted in a strong social mission and commitment to sustainable value-chains by keeping ownership of the product process in country of origin. Produced in partnership with farmers groups and locally owned businesses in Uganda, we aim to promote economic development, job creation, and connected supply chains.

Our Story

Our company was officially founded in April 2016, but has been a dream for years. After studying the entrepreneurial environment in Uganda, our founder, Renee, was struck by the high degree of entrepreneurship, yet perplexed by the endless piles of tomatoes, plantains, bananas - stand after stand; the incredible hustle and simultaneous stagnation of the local marketplace. There was a persistent lack of business growth, employment opportunities, and variety in product offerings.

Issues of competition, waste, and unemployment inspired Renee to explore the possibilities of AgriProcessing - adding value to natural resources - to provide growth avenues for entrepreneurs, unemployed youth, and farmers alike. Combined with her passion for healthy snacking, she was driven to team up with local, organic-certified manufacturers to transform Uganda's best tropical fruits into wholesome, clutter-free snacks.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 


Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly,  and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products.

Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s Most Popular and Highest Level Certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.

The Paleo Vegan Certification was designed for Paleo and Vegan cross-over products.


Grain Free Certification Program:

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products do not contain any grains, grain-based ingredients, grain-based stabilizers or preservatives, and have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program.
