Saquito Mix LLC Announces Partnership with Barefoot Seeds NGO
Date:3/19/2013

Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Emerging chia energy mix, Saquito Mix LLC will now be donating 1 percent of its sales revenue to the non-profit organization Barefoot Seeds in order to help in their efforts to provide water, legal and heirloom seed agricultural services to the Tarahumara people of Mexico.

“The Tarahumara are the source of inspiration for our chia seed based energy food product and we want to express our gratitude to them in this small way” says Jonathan Carroll, chief business officer at Saquito MIx LLC. The founders of Saquito learned about the Tarahumara and their use of chia seed for endurance running in Christopher McDougall’s best selling book Born To Run, and saw the opportunity to develop an energy food that not only incorporated chia seed but also made use of one of the traditional methods of use by the Tarahumara, as a loose mixture in a small pouch. Saquito Mix LLC calls their product a chia energy mix, a product that consists of chia and hemp seeds along with a variety of other natural superfoods, spices and sweeteners, as a loose mixture in a small and portable biodegradable plastic package.

“I came up with the name Saquito by Googling spanish names for the word pouch and sack, thinking of the pouch of chia seeds the Tarahumara carry on long journeys, as soon as I saw it I knew it was a perfect name for our product and company” says Zach Azeez CEO and product inventor at Saquito Mix LLC, “This product and our company is so intimately connected with the ideas from the Tarahumara that when we learned about the work that Barefoot Seeds does we knew that we needed to help them however we could.”

Barefoot Seeds directly assists Tarahumara farmers by providing them with native maize seeds, basic tools, and assistance with water resources and land protection. 100 percent of all donations go directly to establishing grassroots seed banks for Tarahumara farmers. Barefoot Seeds also provide water and irrigation, basic tools, micro-loans, and other support. Their founder Will Harlan has spent many years with the Tarahumara, modeling his own farm after their practices. Harlan has also built relationships with the people, providing direct assistance to the Tarahumara farmers who need it most. Drought, logging, and soil erosion have made subsistence farming even more difficult for the Tarahumara, and many farmers lack the resources to continue growing their ancient varieties of corn. Barefoot Seeds provides the seeds and tools to enable Tarahumara to continue their traditional farming and running culture.

Saquito was founded in 2012 and is the producer of the world’s first chia energy mix - a unique blend of superfoods consisting primarily of chia seed with an overall low sugar content, packaged in 40g units, in a custom biodegradable plastic package. Saquito Mix LLC is based out of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
