Tribalí Foods is the vision of Angela Bicos Mavridis. As a kid in her grandmother’s kitchen, Angela discovered the nurturing power of real foods. Today, as a single mother of 3, her recipes are a flavorful celebration of simple ingredients — gathered from nature and seasoned with loving care — that make healthier eating easier for everyone.

Angela Bicos Mavridis, CEO/Founder of Tribalí Foods

Growing up Paleo … who knew?

“Paleo” is a Greek word that has come to represent our modern desire to eat wholesome, ancestral foods that have sustained humans for generations. When you’re raised in a traditional Greek household, Paleo cuisine is often on the plate — even if you don’t know what Paleo is.

During summers spent in Greece, Angela saw her grandmother happily cooking from scratch — using only real organic, local, and heirloom foods  — according to traditional recipes passed down through the generations. Angela vividly remembers grocery runs through the village.

Her first stop was at the “manavi" (vegetable grocer) for fresh tomatoes, zucchini, dandelions, or other fresh vegetables grown and picked fresh that week. Next up, a visit to “Kiria Eleni" (Mrs. Helen) for fresh eggs. Lastly, a stop at a neighboring farm for fresh, raw goat's milk or cheese. Before deciding what to make for dinner, Angela's grandmother would check to see what fresh fish had been caught that day by local fisherman. Whole, fresh, real, caught, gathered, or grown — that’s the food that made up Angela’s plate growing up.

Ironically, back in the states, Angela’s dad owned a fast-food hamburger drive-thru serving up yummy — though less health-minded — burgers, fries, and shakes. With a busy schedule, the family ordered dinner from their restaurant more often than not. On her quest for healthier eating, Angela became a vegetarian at the age of 13.

Finding foods that feel good.

As an adult, Angela’s journey into health and wellness deepened when she became a Holistic Nutritionist. An expert cook, lifelong fitness aficionado — runner, cyclist and cross-fitter — and 35-year vegetarian, Angela had grown tired of fueling her body with endless combinations of protein powders, shakes, supplements, and bars. She came to realize that clean animal proteins paired with real, ancestral ingredients made her feel better physically and emotionally.

Angela made it her mission to capture the magic of her grandmother’s kitchen in a way that fits into today’s busy lifestyles. She developed delicious meat patties — seasoned with worldly flavor combinations created from vegetables, spices, herbs and purees — that cook from frozen and are ready to nourish in minutes.   

Today, Tribalí Foods seeks and sources 100% organic high-quality proteins — from grass fed and grass finished beef to free-range chicken, pasture-raised pork, and wild-caught seafood — to create a flavorful, versatile, and nutrient-dense centerpieces for wholesome, satisfying meals. Constantly curious, we’ll never stop foraging for the freshest ingredients, the most adventurous flavors, and the finest cultural inspirations we can bring to your plate.

Welcome to ancestral eating made for your modern world!

How are Tribalí meat patties different?

Answer: Glad you asked! The answer is simple — PRIORITIES! We pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients from the most reliable sources. That means animals that were humanely raised on open pastures with clean diets free of antibiotics, hormones, and and pesticide-laden animal feed. We prioritize this above all else, because what goes into the animal’s body goes into your body.

Why should I choose 100% Grass Fed and Finished beef?

Answer: Because 100% Grass Fed and Finished Beef is better for you and better for the animal. True Grass Fed & Finished Beef is higher in vitamins A, E, and antioxidants — but most importantly, it’s higher in “good” omega-3 fats and lower in “bad” omega-6 fats. Remember it’s not: “You are what you Eat, but you are what your Eat, Eats.” Look for “grass finished” — most labeled grass fed beef is “finished” on grain, corn and soy. Unless your label says it’s 100% grass fed and finished, then the cattle is likely grain-finished, and therefore NO better than feedlot, conventional beef.

Where do Tribalí ingredients come from?

Answer: This is a great question to ask when considering what to put in your body. Across all ingredients, we believe in sustainability and transparency. We are globally inspired and locally sourced! All of our protein sources are certified Global Animal Partnership (GAP) ranches here in the USA, some of which we visit regularly. We only source from Global Animal Partnership (GAP) rated ranches, to ensure we're supporting ranchers who raise their animals humanely, on grass, free of confinement, as nature intended. This means animals are: Grass- Fed, Grass-Finished and Grain-Free Pasture Raised and True Free-Range Antibiotic-Free and Hormone-Free Naturally Weaned Sustainably Farmed Humanely Treated. Please visit the GAP website to learn more about the program: www.globalanimalpartnership.org We look to the world for our spice and flavor combinations and source the freshest herbs, spices, vegetables and purees from local growers. Many of our herbs, spices, and purees come from ranches and farms located here in California. When needed, we supplement through other quality purveyors throughout the USA.

Are Tribalí products “clean label” products?

Answer: Yes. We are committed to real, single-sourced ingredients and a sustainable and transparent supply chain. We want you to feel good about what you eat!

Where are Tribalí patties made?

Answer: All of our products are made in a USDA facility that is free of gluten, dairy and soy located here in California.

Why is the interior package so tough to open?

Answer: We pride ourselves in using the freshest ingredients to offer you a delicious, home-style patty. No frozen hockey pucks here! Our unique freezer-wrap seals in freshness to last in your freezer, and to eliminate the “freezer-burn” you’ll find on other patties. This may make them tough to open, but we promise, they’re well worth the effort! Our suggestion is to use a kitchen shears to cut along the perimeter of the patty, pulling back on the clear side to expose the patty. Take your time — once you have them open, the patties cook in just minutes!

How long will Tribalí patties stay good in my freezer?

Answer: We grind, mix and blend our meats with the freshest vegetables, spices, herbs and purees, then vacuum-seal our patties to ensure lasting quality. They will keep in your freezer for 6-8 months. Keep frozen until ready to use. No thawing necessary — cook them straight from frozen.

Do I need to defrost Tribalí patties?

Answer: Nope — life just got easier! Our patties are made to go straight from your freezer onto the outdoor grill, under the broiler, or into the frying pan with no need to defrost.

What’s the best way to cook Tribalí patties?

Answer: Use our patties to make a classic burger or to accompany any side, get inspiration from our recipes. Our patties are ready in less than 10 minutes! We like to pan fry them, but you can follow package directions using the method that works best for you: Broil: Preheat broiler. Place frozen patties in a broiler pan on a rack 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 10 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Grill: Cook frozen patties over hot coals or on a gas grill 4 to 6 minutes on each side. Pan Fry: (our preferred method) Preheat a heavy cast-iron skillet. Place frozen patties in skillet and turn burner to medium-low heat. Cook 10-12 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Keep in mind that cooking times may vary. Grass-fed and finished beef should not be overcooked. Patties are done when internal temperature reaches 160 degrees fahrenheit for beef and 165 degrees fahrenheit for chicken.

Are Tribalí patties healthy?

Answer: Your body needs protein. Our patties are a flavorful, high quality source of clean protein. One patty gives you up to 22 grams — a full serving of protein for one meal. Cooked from frozen, ready in minutes, and with three great flavors to choose from, there’s enough variety to keep you and everyone you know well-nourished and happy!

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 paleo 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, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing 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.
