Founder Matt Weiss drew inspiration for RIND from his great-grandmother, Helen Seitner, a health food pioneer who sold natural, whole grain foods from her “Stay-Well” health shop in Flint, Michigan in the 1920s. “Great-Grandma Helen preached the value of ‘roots, rinds, seeds and stems’ well before kale was cool,” notes Matt. Her advice to never let the most nutritious part of food go to waste, particularly fruit rinds (known for their concentrated health benefits), planted the seed for Weiss to launch his own health food business decades later. For Weiss, RIND Snacks represents his great-grandmother’s passion for both personal health and environmental sustainability.
