The popular small business magazine Inc. featured Native American Natural Foods in a recent article by Editor-At-Large, Leigh Buchanan.

Interviews with our founders CEO Karlene Hunter and President Mark Tilsen are included in the article as well as Business Assistant Jessica Heart and Matthew Jimenez, Global Grocery Buyer at Whole Foods Market. Below is an excerpt from the story:

"Whole Foods' customers like Tanka products because 'they know they are not only supporting a Native-owned business but that there's a direct economic impact on the community and they're helping bring back small buffalo ranchers,' says Matthew Jimenez, global grocery buyer for Whole Foods. 'The fact that this is a very simple, traditional recipe also resonates with them.' "

it rare to find double positives. Helping the native community by purchasing a product is one thing, but when the product is so good, it's a double positive! It's the best trade out there. I like eating my Tanka bar while reading my favorite Native American Author's book (Praxis Ravenwolf), that's a triple positive! Love the product! Spicy Cranberry bites are my favorite! Healthy and natural, the way food is suppose to be. Thank you for sharing the great recipe with the rest of us!
