Cooking up a nutritious storm in the Balanced Kitchen are Sano, healthy eating with a difference. Here they are to tell us how their passion for delicious and nourishing food began and share their plans to transform the way we perceive our our plates. They've got a lot of knowledge to offer and so, we're sure you'll agree they're game-changers in the world of wellness.
We Are Sano!
The Sano philosophy is simple, we exist to drive a nutrition revolution by redefining healthy eating and to provide you with the knowledge you need to take back control of your own food choices and health.
Everyone at Sano is passionate about health and our biggest motivation is helping people to understand the benefits of what they’re eating, which is grounded in the very roots of the brand’s beginnings. Based on the philosophy of Dale Pinnock, The Medicinal Chef, who believes that healthy eating should be based on fact, not fad - there’s so much conflicting information out there telling you how you should and shouldn’t be eating, how do you know what’s right for you?
This is the exact question Heather and Doug Richards were also conscious of answering to combat the abundant misinformation we’re faced with daily when it comes to food and eating for health. Sano was born when Dale was invited to the home of Doug, an entrepreneur, and Heather Richards, a Nutritional Therapist, when Doug decided to pull out all the stops and surprise Heather for their 25th wedding anniversary. Dale cooked them a romantic dinner, and rather than Dale third-wheeling, the three of them bonded over their shared passion for wanting to drive change in the world of health and nutrition.
The combination of Heather, Doug and Dale’s desire for change and their recognition of the need for a turnaround in culture’s approach to wellness, led to the creation of Sano just few months later. With the ambition of becoming an established authority in evidence-based eating and to revolutionise the way people think about food and their health, Sano shares truthful information about cooking and eating food to cut through the noise and get to the facts.
Sano quickly developed into a group of four businesses which each addresses an area of the health and wellness space in order to instigate positive change and that, collectively, support a new way of thinking and educate the community about healthy living.
