Our founder, Ruth Willis, was born in Colombia and has always missed the delicious fruit and veg that grow there.

With La Chiva, she has created the perfect snacks from her home country: light and crispy pieces, just freeze dried Colombian fruit and nothing else, gluten free, virtually fat free, and less than 40 calories per pack!

Why La Chiva? In the Colombian countryside, La Chiva buses are the only way to travel. They take our workers to the farms, then the fresh fruit to market. Without these hard working little “donkeys” we couldn’t bring you our super delicious freeze dried fruit…so we named our brand after them!
