Why are you proud to be a women-led company?
As a mom, I love being able to provide a delicious, healthy snack for women on the go and their families. Life is hard, so making a grab & go snack that is actually good for you is important to me. There is so much junk in our food system. I suffer from food allergies and auto immune diseases. I was able to heal myself by changing my diet so I love to be able to offer real food solutions that tastes amazing to others that are label readers like myself. Our category is a legacy category where there hasn't been much change or shake up in decades, so I love that our innovative take is making waves.
What benefits have you experienced being a woman-led company?
Being a woman that has health issues that is related to food, really resonates with our customer because I am the reason why PREVAIL exists. I actually eat the jerky and saw that there was a true void in the market when it came to healthy, top 8 allergen free snacks that didn't contain fake ingredients. I love hearing customers response to our jerky, that is why we do this.
In what ways other than gender equity do you think your company is making the world a better place?
Providing real food for real people, we donate our jerky to kids with food allergies that are in need of food banks, plus we are a certified plastic neutral company so we make sure that additional plastic is recovered before it reaches our oceans.
