Sascha, Founder of Saffi Foods
After working with an olive oil farm in Chile, I learned about the adulteration in the olive oil industry, which spans the entire food economy. I decided to start a company focused on providing chefs and restaurants with affordable ingredients that they could trust to be 100% real and never diluted.
A few years into my business, I noticed that no oil or vinegar company focused on the bulk section. There were no options for customers like myself, who wanted high quality ingredients in sustainable packaging. This led me to work with grocery stores to help redesign the entire bulk shopping experience.
Lastly, what if people want to buy directly from the supplier? How could I offer them a sustainable option? Where can I find durable, reusable containers that I could fill with my products over and over again?

Life Before Saffi
While studying at the John Felice Center in Rome, Sascha had the opportunity to intern with the UN World Food Programme. She later worked in the Trade Office at the Consulate of Chile, where she was introduced to the incredible world of Chilean food and wine. Post graduation, Sascha moved to Chile to work with an extra virgin olive oil producer. One opportunity led to another and Saffi Foods was born.
