Ravi Jolly co-founded I Heart Keenwah during business school at the University of Chicago. He has since grown it into a sustainable, ethical, and DELICIOUS company that focuses its products around quinoa.
Some of the things we discuss in this conversation are: his upbringing in rural Pennsylvania, his Kardashian obsession, why he’s so into quinoa, the fair trade world, how his new baby has affected the company, and much more.
