The Guzman family originally moved here 24 years ago (1994) with Entrepreneurial Spirits and Dreams. In 2012, their daughter was diagnosed with an autoimmunity and after exhausting medical options, they decided to take an holistic approach. They became passionate about food, nutrition, and healing your body from the inside out. And that's where Artisan Tropic was born, out of a desire to create wholesome, healthy snacks.
