Manufacturing Nuts & Bolts Specialist
Brian Nasr, Founder of Healthy Food Crew
Brian Nasr found the traditional Contract Manufacturing landscape too painful for his own startup food business to navigate so he decided to change it!
High MOQ’s, outdated processes, too much red tape and no room for collaboration led him to create Healthy Food Crew – a contract manufacturing venture that makes the entire process of getting your product to market as seamless, pain free and easy as possible.
Manufacturing should be about collaboration, education and innovation – small business needs speed to market, flexibility and people who can help bring their vision to life, and that is exactly what Brian and his team are driven to do.
