Natural Sins

Our belief is that once you get a taste of our native fruits, unique process and Costa Rican way of doing things, you’ll jump ship from your usual chip. Perhaps, once and for all.

We certainly didn’t think we could waltz in and steal a few potato chip fans along the way without having a pretty spectacular chip to share with the rest of the world. It starts with our fruits and veggies. We scale volcanoes hunting for pineapples in their skirts, climb atop wild coconut trees to find the perfect fruit and wield our machetes through the jungle searching for two-pound mangoes.
