A Couple of Like-Hearted Women
Six months ago, Don't Go Nuts, the first division of Pinto Barn, Inc. in Salida, Colorado, began carefully sourcing organic ingredients for its line of nut-free food products. During this extensive search, the team at Don't Go Nuts discovered a very special woman with a very special business, Eileen Silva of Simple Food.
The relationship began when Don't Go Nuts chose Simple Food as the ideal soy butter for its energy snack bars. It was the only nut-free, organic, non-GMO soy butter that had the taste and quality that is critical for all Don't Go Nuts products. It quickly became apparent that both companies care about the same things.infusing love and care into all products; dedication to customer health, wellbeing and safety; and responsible business practices. As the conversation deepened, it was clear that the relationship would be a deeper collaboration of two like-hearted businesses.
"I knew during our first conversation that Eileen was a unique and conscious business person who had put her heart and soul into her soy butter recipes. She had created one-of-kind flavors with amazing taste while using nut-free, organic, healthy, non-GMO ingredients. Our team knew this product was uniquely superior and would fit perfectly into our product line at Don't Go Nuts. The greatest gift of all about this business partnership and purchase is that Eileen Silva is as special as the products she has created," said Jane Pinto, founder and CEO of Don't Go Nuts.
Eileen added, "I worked for five years on these recipes, and I cherish my customers. But I knew that my ingredient sales business was growing at such a rate that I would need to make a choice about my business direction. My prayers were answered when I met the team at Don't Go Nuts. I believe and trust that this company shares my values and vision for healthy whole living, sustainable business practices and a profound commitment to producing safe nut-free foods. I'm so excited to have found their caring and talented team, who will continue to serve all of my valued customers as well as new customers around the world..
It is deeply important to both Jane and Eileen to assure you, our valued customers, that these soy butters will remain the exact recipes, exact ingredients, exact quality and will be made with the exact care that you have come to trust, love and expect. Nothing about the product will change except the label. The promise from Don't Go Nuts is the same promise you.ve always had from Simple Food. To add to your comfort, Eileen has committed to helping transition the business for an entire year.
"Eileen created a perfect product, and we intend to keep it perfect," said Jane.
