co-founder jen kanter was interviewed in 2007 by the Los Angeles Times to discuss her concern over deceiving food labeling & was asked the simple question “why is this important to you?”
jen said her goal was to “… help people know exactly what they are buying.”
years later, that goal still inspires her, along with the mission of barrio.la & how we curate our shop.
