Mother Raw, originallyestablished in 2011 as RawFoodz, was acquired by Reunion Foods Inc. in 2016, with the goal to improve and increase production and bring the company’s products to more food lovers across North America.  Reunion Foods was started by members of the former executive team of a successful North American food producer who reunited to invest and run a company in the growing plant-based space.  Kristi took the helm of Mother Raw in early 2018 with the mandate to prepare the company for debut across North America.  More information about Kristi Knowles, Reunion Foods and Mother Raw is available at and via LinkedIn at
