The Tin Star Foods Story
Bold Flavors, Cleaner Ingredients
We have evolved and so has our mission
When we started I Tin Star Foods I was in my 20s, working a great job in Los Angeles with access to every type of food I could dream of. It was a great time and place to start a food brand in the land of possibilities. At the time, it made sense to create a company rooted in providing only the most premium ingredients with transparency.
As I got older and started a family of my own, my collective experiences changed and I soon realized that there's a lot of space for a brand to live between foods choices that are low cost and the ultra premium.
What I started to understand intimately was how important it was to feel good about the types of foods we feed our kids while being budget conscious. Making better for you choices is possible because of privilege, financial resources and access can be so limiting in how we fill our pantries. We as food makers have a responsibility help bridge that gap. While we still care about bringing premium foods with transparency into your homes, it's more important to us that we do it affordably. So we're here, working every day to make sure that we're making convenient foods and doing our best to toss out the the junky ingredients, affordably.
Mom, Founder, and CEO
Hima Pal – Founder & CEO
Hima grew up in Texas and graduated from the University of North Texas with a background in Logistics & Supply Chain Management. She moved to Los Angeles where she was working in Aerospace and teaching yoga and soon found herself in the middle of a Crohn’s flare up. Her life wasn’t in balance due to lack of basic needs like proper nutrition and adequate sleep. She eventually found her way into a traditional diet and by using nutrient dense foods, specifically fats and cooking oils, she was able to completely pull herself back into remission and has been thriving ever since. She started Tin Star Foods in 2014 to create products which customers could purchase and use with confidence, knowing the company was honest and transparent. She moved Tin Star Foods headquarters to Texas in 2015.
