A Family Story. A Family Business
The Guzmans moved to Charlotte, NC 24 years ago (1994), having Entrepreneurial Spirits and Dreams. 9 Years ago (2012), Maca was diagnosed with an autoimmunity. After the Guzmans exhausted medical options and ended up trying a holistic approach, they became passionate about food and nutrition. They used that passion as the vision for starting a healthy snack brand called Artisan Tropic.
Being Colombian, they wanted to innovate the most delicious Plantain and Cassava Snacks, with a sharp focus on whole and clean ingredients. What began as a Health Issue became a Passion and then evolved into a business…. and a love story. Last year, Maca married Jose Agudelo, the Plantain Farmer’s Son! So now, everything, From Farm to Snack, is truly in the family!
