Candi Haas and Rita Childers

Candi and Rita started selling healthier-for-you items four years ago at their local farmers’ market in St. Louis, MO, after the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program. They took a year and a half to perfect a shelf-stable recipe, and fill the void in the middle aisles of the grocery store with a pantry staple of plant-based goodness. You can now find Core and Rind Cashew Cheesy Sauce in grocery stores across North America.
