How it all started 


Explore Cuisine began with our founder, Joe Spronz, and his daughter, Mika.

Like many kids, Mika was an incredibly picky eater. And like many parents, Joe worried that his daughter’s diet lacked the necessary protein and vitamins to help her grow.

Joe searched the world to find something Mika would eat — something tasty, and nutritious. Something packed with protein, fiber and all the good-for-you nutrients young kids need. That’s when he found pasta made with protein-rich edamame beans. When Joe brought the pasta home to his daughter, Mika loved it.

And so, Explore Cuisine was born. Joe set out to make his own line of products that his daughter would enjoy — food that was simple, delicious, and also full of protein and nutrients. Now, we share those products with you, too.
