Me & the Bees
Mikaila had the idea for Me & the Bees when she was just 5 years old. She began selling her lemonade at youth entrepreneurial events and a lemonade stand in front of her home, donating a percentage of the profits to organizations fighting to save honeybees. Now 15 years old, Mikaila’s lemonade is sold in 5 flavors in chains such as Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and more. Their mint and honey are sourced from local Austin farmers and beekeepers who practice sustainable farming and beekeeping, and she has started a nonprofit called "The Healthy Hive Foundation to further her work in saving the bees.
Elizabeth Stein first began selling muffin and cake mixes at a triathlon in 2009, and her brand now makes a variety of granolas, flavored oatmeal bars, and mixes. All her products are packed with superfoods like sunflower seeds, quinoa, amaranth, and chia seeds. The products are non-GMO project verified, made with organic ingredients, and contain no artificial additives. We love the granola - and you can’t go wrong with any of the 14 flavors!
Co-founder Veronica Garza adopted a low-inflammation, grain-free diet to overcome multiple debilitating autoimmune conditions. She began making grain-free tortillas at home to go with her family’s favorite Mexican dishes, and they were so popular her family launched Siete Foods together in 2014. They now offer chips, tortillas, seasonings, sauces, cookies and more. We love their cassava, almond flour, and chickpea tortillas!
KaiYen Mai was inspired by her family’s 50 year history of making traditional Asian jerky, and decided to branch out on her own. She sources meat locally from Nebraska to make gourmet jerky without gluten, preservatives or nitrites. The brand makes turkey, pork, chicken and beef jerky with unique flavors like "Grilled Island Teriyaki Pork" and "Chile Basil Turkey."
Nuttzo’s founder Danielle started the brand out of her own kitchen, blending nuts and seeds together to provide nutrition for her adopted sons from Ukraine who were nutrient-deficient. Today, Nuttzo has a line of nut and seed based products that range from jarred nut butters, “2go” packs, and refrigerated snack bars. They pack 7 nuts and seeds in every jar of the nut butter!
