We are a Costa Rican company that manufactures natural fruit and vegetable chips that was born in 2010, and we launched our products for the first time in Costa Rica in September 2012.
The founders industrialized a family recipe that consists of only two natural ingredients that come alive with the alchemy that is produced in our ovens, creating flakes that offer the consumer a complete sensory experience.
The company's first line of products was called Crispy Thins and positioned itself as a new generation of healthy snacks. This positioning is maintained when the name was changed to Natural Sins since the new brand is aimed at those who want to feel good about what they eat.
At the beginning, the available flavors were apple, pineapple, mango, coconut, orange and beet. Being 100% natural and without preservatives, fruit and vegetable flakes were sought after by other brands, which is why the private label has always been considered viable as a line of business.
When the product was marketed, the exponential growth began, to such an extent that we had the need for an investor to take the next step. This investor arrived in the form of a woman. Passionate about gastronomy and business, good business. An empowered woman, with a sense of smell to seize the opportunities. This is how we began the journey of Natural Sins with the group Pronos, the investment fund that drives the brand and develops it.
After almost 3 years of activity, we started exporting to countries in Central America, the Caribbean, the United States, Canada, China and Japan. In January 2014, we started the e-commerce adventure, developing a partnership with Amazon to reach more customers.
The company's innovation has been recognized in several international competitions. Natural Sins was a finalist for the SOFI Awards and the BTM Awards. We won the La Idea business contest, organized by the US Department of State and US AID.
Currently, we are completing a process of moving to a new plant in Costa Rica with greater production capacity to cope with the volume growth necessary to satisfy the vast market of the United States and the rest of the world.
At Natural Sins, we maintain a policy of support to small farmers in Costa Rica, in order to provide them with support in their development and to keep records of fruits and vegetables from the harvest to the hands of the consumer.
