Melatta, Inc., is a woman-owned company founded in August, 2016 by Chef Denise Iannini and Andres Lombana in Groveland, Florida. It was founded with a profound desire to transform lives by giving healthier and sustainable food choices.
At that time in Colombia, the government and the guerrilla narco group FARC were negotiating a political and social peace agreement, which would put an end to 50 years of internal war and drug trafficking. Melatta was inspired by the idea of supporting farmers who enrolled in the peace agreement in 2016. These farmers were previously harvesting coca leaves used to make cocaine. To support their new legal venture, Melatta will buy raw materials: fruit, and cereals.
Colombia has a small economy and expensive distribution charges. Chef Denise realized that selling the Melatta spreads (the company’s first product) in Bogota wasn’t going to make a big enough impact on the ex-FARC farming community. Without enough financial incentives and opportunities, the peace agreement could fail. Denise and her husband, Andres, moved to the United States, the biggest economy in the world.
