We all started somewhere. For us, this is a paid tribute to Elena’s beloved Grandmother Rosita from Vigo in Galicia, Northwest Spain. Actually, that’s why our name is Grandma Sita, short for Rosita.
From early on in Elena’s childhood, she spent a long time with my grandmother, who taught her about the importance of seasonal eating and generally the true value of food. And really it’s a tribute to all grandmothers because this generation really valued their resources and food.
The way Grandma Sita and her generation have minimized their waste is very much about living a simple and minimalistic life.
We truly believe that our grandmothers are changemakers contributing to a better world for the next generations.
Grandma Sita is an emotional motivation as well, in which we also seek to recover the shared time between different generations, through the love for home-cooked meals, promoting healthy and sustainable habits.
Granma Sita was born in 2020 during the global pandemic, as an impact start-up to inspire the daily practice of sustainable gastronomy.
