Pitaya Foods all began after a work trip to Nicaragua. While visiting, our founder, Chuck Casano, came across a tasty fruit called Pitaya or Dragon Fruit. And, after one bite he was hooked. However, no matter how much he tried to enjoy this fruit, Chuck was often distracted by the impoverishment he witnessed while on assignment. Wondering how he was supposed to live without this delicious fruit after he returned home to the United States and what he could do to help relieve impoverishment in Nicaragua, he came up with the idea for Pitaya Foods. Shortly after, Chuck teamed up with his longtime friend, Ben Hiddlestone, and created a company that could make a difference in people’s diets and lives. At Pitaya Foods, we create organic fruit products that are super for your health, the planet, and impoverished communities. We consider our fruit-based products to be super as they are paleo, vegan, gluten-free, AIP-friendly, high in fibre, and beneficial for everyone involved. At Pitaya Foods, our mission is to produce minimally processed and organic fruit products that positively impact our communities; We hire vulnerable populations from Central America and use a clean energy source to power our facilities to ensure that our products offer long-term benefits. At Pitaya Foods, we believe that one superfruit is all it takes to improve the health and wellbeing of people and the planet. With Pitaya Foods, you’re helping the world become super again, one fruit at a time!
