KRAVE Pure Foods was founded by Jon Sebastiani while he was training for the New York Marathon in 2009 and started looking for a real and healthy snack.
KRAVE Jerky is a high-protein, low-calorie snack that is free of nitrates, gluten, and artificial flavors and comes in flavors such as basic citrus, lemon garlic, pineapple orange, and garlic chili pepper. The company has also teamed up with Whole Foods Market to design, produce, and market a line of artisanal jerky with flavors such as cabernet rosemary and chardonnay thyme.
The company is #24 on the Forbes list of America’s Most Promising Companies. KRAVE’s products are available nationally through Target stores and in the cafeterias of Twitter, Google, and Beats by Dre.
