We are excited to introduce another delicious and healthy all-natural product: NADI Happy Hearts Apple Chips.
NADI Happy Hearts Apple Chips are never baked, fried, cooked or freeze-dried. NADI Happy Hearts are sliced ultra thin and dried with advanced techniques that make them super crunchy, and those methods were inspired by Old World Georgian traditions of naturally preserving freshly harvested fruit, called chiri.
Each purchase of NADI Happy Hearts and NADI Wild Rosehip drinks help the company advance its mission to strengthen local communities. As a social venture, NADI creates job opportunities for refugees in the country of Georgia who have been displaced by regional conflicts and supports farmers who practice sustainable growing and harvesting techniques.
The brand identity and packaging for NADI Happy Hearts was created by Smith Design of Morristown, New Jersey, which works with major consumer brands including Hershey’s, Unilever and Disney.
Smith Design and NADI are both certified as women-owned business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest third-party certifier of businesses that are owned and operated by women. NADI was also recently selected for the Stacy’s Rise Project by Stacy’s Pita Chip Co., which provides grants, marketing support and mentoring to women-led businesses.
“NADI Happy Hearts apple chips are a delicious way to nourish our bodies and also support our mission of creating opportunities for economic mobility for refugees and farmers who work hard to produce the foods we eat,” said Nina Tickaradze, Founder & CEO of NADI.
Tickaradze founded NADI to revive the ancient Georgian health tradition of rosehip juice, which dates back hundreds of years when people would forage and hand-pick berries from wild rosehip bushes and steep them to make tea-like drinks that are full of Vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenols, antioxidants and dozens of other beneficial nutrients.
NADI Happy Hearts are another addition to the company’s lineup of healthy offerings. The apple chips are naturally vegan, gluten free and fat free, and we only use non-GMO apples so you can feel good about sharing them with family and friends. Like all NADI products, Happy Hearts never contain added sugar or artificial ingredients.
NADI Happy Hearts are made with just one ingredient — apples. They are available in two delicious varieties, Granny Smith and Ida Red, and we leave the peels on the apples so you get all the health benefits of the whole fruit. Apples are a great source of fiber, iron, potassium and numerous other vitamins and nutrients.
NADI products are available at more than 500 retailers in the United States, including The Fresh Market stores and select natural food retailers, co-op stores and boutique local businesses. NADI rosehip drinks and Happy Hearts dried apple chips can also be purchased online at getnadi.com.
