Get to Know Nana
Rooted in a deep sense of social responsibility and a respect for the environment, Nana Solutions offers products that are derived from sustainable growing methods. We either grow ourselves or work exclusively with small local farms that employ permaculture methods, which maximizes self-maintaining and beneficial connections between various plant, insect and animal species in their natural ecosystems. This allows not only a great diversity of plant life to grow on farms, but also allows them to grow without the use of pesticides.
Who We Are
Nana is a small family-run company committed to growing, producing, and sustaining natural foods and ingredients we know best. Because we are located in the tropics and employ refined and more efficient traditional methods, you now have the opportunity to explore oils, nectar, herbs, and other natural products you may never have thought of to include in your overall well-being.
Team Nana & Fellow Farmers
Meet Teddee. After spending a good chunk of time number crunching in Fortune 500 companies, it's now all about getting back to basics. Simple, unadulterated ingredients, super foods, and natural products are what Nana #cofounder is really in search for these days. But she admits she still gets excited in the stationery section looking for that perfect pen that makes her bad handwriting a tad bit neater.
Teddee was born in Los Angeles, California and holds an MBA in finance from Loyola Marymount University. She splits her time between Hollywood, where you can often find her hiking in the neighboring hills, and Thailand, which serves as home base while traveling Asia.
Jay grew up with her grandparents along the Southern coast town of Lang Suan in Chumphon Province, Thailand.As her parents made their way through the ranks, they began purchasing land growing organic bananas for export to Japan, and rubber, palm, and coconut trees for domestic consumption, as well as other native fruits and vegetables often brought to their own dinner table. Together they cultivated the land after their day jobs and school, and on the weekends. Jay would follow dad around as he chopped down overgrowth with his machete and help him gather leaves and branches for compost. This hard work, discipline, and knowledge of these jungle-like ecosystems are what Jay brings to us at Nana Solutions…and to you.
