Our Story

It all started in my kitchen in San Diego County, where in my quest to find an ideal diet for my own health, I fell in love with the magic of chia. I quickly discovered this amazing little seed was providing a powerful vitality boost and was instrumental in addressing some challenging health issues related to longstanding autoimmune disorders. I believe that there are multiple components to a healthy and joy-filled life and no one thing holds all the answers, but there is no doubt that once I incorporated chia into my daily diet, there was a very noticeable increase in my vitality, energy and strength.

In the summer of 2009, fueled by my passion for chia and my commitment to be of service to humanity and the planet, I founded Mamma Chia — the first organic, chia-based food and beverage company. Mamma Chia remains a conscious and sustainable company dedicated to sharing delicious, nutrient-rich, organic plant-based beverages and snacks powered by chia.

With joy and gratitude,

Janie Hoffman, Founder & CEO
