For Episode 180 of Amplify Your Business, we’re joined by Sarah Goodman, the founder and CEO of Chiwis. Chiwis is an organic health food company that makes fruit chips. But these aren’t the dried fruit that you’ve come to expect. The fruit used to make Chiwis products is farmed right down the street from the facility where they are dried and made into chips. Meaning that rather than getting dehydrated fruit chips that are brown and boring looking, Chiwis fruit chips are dehydrated at the height of their ripeness, which not only allows them to retain their bright colors, but also their sweet flavours.
