On this episode, we have Zack Gazzaniga who is the Founder of Zack's Mighty.
Zack’s Mighty is supporting regenerative agriculture with its tortilla chip products made with certified regenerative corn.
In this episode, we learn about Zack’s journey in CPG helping to build and scale Sir Kensington’s, why he was compelled to “make chips that don’t break in dip,” and the wild ride building Zack’s Mighty supply chain that included everything from importing an heirloom variety of corn into the US, setting up direct trade supply with farms, investing in proprietary manufacturing processes, and certifying their regenerative claims through A Greener World (AGW).
