Who We Are
Before we talk about who we are, let's talk about who we aren't: we are not sodium-packed ramen noodles, artificial mac & cheese, gas station snacks, or sugar-packed granola bars disguised as "healthy" options.
We are real meals. Every Chef Soraya bowl is a plant-based meal for on-the-go, at your desk, or wherever hunger strikes. With hemp, quinoa, rice, beans, and lower sodium sauce recipes, it's a nutritious, hearty, convenient meal, ready in minutes. Just add hot water!
We make healthy, nutritious plant-based meals while ensuring to focus on sustainability and the impacts we have on the environment
