Our Co-Founders

"Kuna is a word in the Quechua language that means 'to give'. For this reason LiveKuna exists today. To give health, taste and traceability to our customers.

Two friends from Ecuador, Carlos & Santiago, that's how LiveKuna was born...
"We analyzed the changes in habits and trends in consumers, we saw a boom in the consumption of super foods and we did not find a brand that reflected that concept of nutrition and health", says Carlos.
“We started this company out of curiosity and frustration knowing that 99% of chia seeds grown in our own country were being exported, and our own people who produced, were not taking advantage of this amazing seed. LiveKuna was then created to promote and bring superfoods consumption back to its roots”, says Santiago.

Our Story

In 2014 LiveKuna was born, a vertically integrated superfood company that works directly with farmers to create healthy foods that are distributed worldwide. We started with chia seeds and eventually incorporated other superfoods grown locally. “We were pioneers in Ecuador when setting up the concept with chia. There was no superfood trend, there was no culture about chia, it was a challenge to educate about the benefits". Then, we realized that consumers were asking for a more convenient and delicious way of eating their superfoods. So we created KunaPops, made from superfoods in a convenient, every-day, delicious snacks and cereals for the whole family to enjoy.
