Our founder was looking for a healthy snack for her children and that at the same time was easy to take on her bike trips. In those days their neighbors planted banana and in a large harvest, they thought of dehydrating them with nuts and granola.
They shared a sample with Diane, and after a test, she had found just what she was looking for. And so began MAE foods!
Today we have five delicious hand-made snacks, with the best ingredients, and 100% healthy to satisfy children, athletes, anyone who wants to eat a rich and healthy snack!
Mae is women-run and employs only women at its production facility in Santa Ana. We believe in giving women the skills they need to better themselves and get better jobs. We are working toward a co-operative model where employees share the profits of the company. One step at a time, we can make the world a better place.
Mae purchases the majority of its ingredients right here in Costa Rica. Earth University bananas are the most eco-friendly bananas around. Our cashews come from farms in Orotina and our uchuvas from Cartago. We do import some of our ingredients, but try as much as possible to support local businesses and eco-friendly practices.
