Why Did I Start Tucan?

I grew up in a country known for olive oil production, yet my life took an unexpected turn when, in my mid-20s, I was diagnosed with a brain malformation after moving to Canada. This marked the beginning of a challenging journey that included multiple brain surgeries, countless CT scans, MRIs, doctor visits, seizures, and a reliance on pharmaceutical medications.

For a considerable time, I was required to depend on pharmaceutical medications indefinitely until a significant turning point arrived when I met Emmy, now my wife and a certified nutritionist. Emmy transformed our kitchen into a sanctuary of whole-food healing, awakening a realization that a new path was beckoning. This marked the initiation of my journey towards becoming medication-free.

In 2021, I reformulated Tucan, which I first started in 2011, with a newfound mission rooted in my personal experience. Through holistic foods featuring clean and sincere ingredients, I aimed to share my acquired wisdom and personal journey, offering assistance to others.

As of August 2023, I am on the verge of a significant milestone—just one month away from being completely medication-free. Throughout this voyage, the unwavering support, encouragement, and camaraderie I've encountered from customers, colleagues, and the community during trade expos, events, and markets have forged a cherished circle that extends beyond business transactions.

As an act of gratitude for my second chance at life, I contribute 1% of my net proceeds to advocate for epilepsy.
