How It Started
I started Tasterie, I’ll be honest – mainly out of frustration. I was a pediatrician and a mom of a toddler, and a newborn that had multiple food allergies. It was simply too tiring to keep finding find food that I could introduce him to, or feed myself (while I breast-fed).
The lack of allergy-safe and great tasting food products available is ridiculous! I can remember standing in the aisles of supermarkets trying to read labels, sleep deprived, with a newborn at home and a toddler between my legs wanting an easier and better option. All I wanted was to find something to eat that wouldn’t cause a reaction in my little son.
As he grew, we stuck with what was safe. But how boring is that? We wanted him to also discover and explore flavors and textures like other normal kids. And that’s when Tasterie was born.
What Is Tasterie
I wanted to build a company that did three things incredibly well:
- Provide great tasting food from vendors all over the world that met rigorous allergen testing/manufacturing protocols.
- Encourage a healthy and nutritionally balanced lifestyle for kids & adults regardless of their food allergies, intolerances or other dietary preferences.
- Provide a service that was so easy, convenient, and delightful that it would seamlessly become a part of daily lives.
