THE KOOL ORGANICS STORY
Kool Organics began life in 2012 when Amsterdam-based Tina da Rosa and Steven Rifkin realised their dream of creating a range of innovative, wholesome, high quality foods and snacks. An intensive period of design, testing and re-testing of recipes followed and continues to this day.
This was just the first step on an exciting journey.
We believe that we all should be able to consume food that is natural and free of chemicals and genetically modified substances. In addition, we strive to make a difference by offering you organic food which is not baked or fried and free of refined flours, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, flavour enhancers, preservatives and e-numbers.
All our products are prepared in dehydrators using a slow and gentle drying process.
From our base in a professional kitchen, we began hand-crafting limited supplies of a small range of foods and snacks on an ‘on-demand’ basis. By 2014 we’d outgrown our first rented kitchen and found new premises which also allowed us to complete the organic certification process and gradually increase production to meet both local as well as demand from a number of European countries.
With additional dehydrating and other essential equipment, we set about creating even more innovative foods with a commitment that our range would always be tasty honest goodness that’s Not baked. Not fried . Slow Dried.
