ABOUT US

A Family Adventure

Artisan Tropic is a family adventure fueled by our family’s passion for healthy living. In 1994, we moved to Charlotte, North Carolina from Bogotá, Colombia (South America). Charlotte has become home and is very dear to our hearts. We love to dance. We love soccer. We love family. And we LOVE to eat healthy. Why?

 

A Family Adventure

In 2011, our youngest daughter was very sick. After getting many different opinions and undergoing various treatments, we could not figure out what was wrong with her so we took her to a holistic nutritionist. She went through some pretty drastic dietary changes and her body began to heal. It was hard but we are so thankful that we went through it all. She is now completely healed!

Passionate About Health!

From this experience we learned the importance of whole food nutrition and the way God made our bodies to function and heal with the proper fuel. Our family became very passionate about eating healthy so we decided to create our own brand of healthy snacks. That’s how Artisan Tropic began. Our desire is to share our family’s healthy adventure with you. Want to join us?
