Kalpna Solanki launched the first frozen organic baby meals company BOBOBABY in North America in 2005. When the economic downturn impacted her business and new opportunities presented themselves, she sold the BOBOBABY brand and started working on Martin’s Marvelous Naturals. Her company produces a line of high-end gourmet Crisps and Granola that are all made in her own manufacturing facility in Burnaby, BC. All the products are gluten-free, nut-free and all-natural, and 90% of ingredients are from Canadian sources.
An avid entrepreneur, Solanki saw the huge potential in doing business beyond borders. Within a few months of launching the new brand, she started exporting to the US. Currently, she is in the midst of negotiating the export of her products to new markets.
