The Tin Star Foods Story

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 Austin, TX in 2015.
