Kim Pabla and Tina Rajani
Our third $10,000 grant winner for 2022 — and the March Business-Specific Category (Food & Beverage) — goes to Kim Pabla and Tina Rajani. These pair of women, one living in the US and one in Canada, are co-founders of Tiny Sprouts Foods, established only six months ago.
They told us their story about developing a passion for nutrition and leaving their corporate jobs to fully commit to their mission of planting the seeds for healthier childhood development through this new business venture.
“When we became moms our children’s nutrient needs were top of mind and we didn’t think twice about including seeds into their diets. Seeds are the world’s TINIEST superfoods, packed full of all the essential nutrients a child needs to develop and thrive. Their itty-bitty size, neutral taste, and versatility make them an easy addition to any meal. It left us wondering why there were no seed products designed for children when they could benefit from their use the most?
Kim and Tina are on a mission to improve childhood nutrition and plan on using the $10,000 grant for marketing that promotes education in this area. We’re excited to see what this year and beyond brings for these two startup entrepreneurs.
