Baobab Foods first came into fruition as a business unit of Tryline, owned by David Bruck. The inspiration came from his colleague Riaan van Zyl. During a trip back to his native South Africa, Riaan was amazed at the nutritional profile of Baobab and its functional attributes. He took a sample back with him to the US, showed it to David and that is how it all started.
