Pauliina Laitinen-Littorin, CEO
I have done my career as an expert in the art market (art as an investment and art forgeries). I have a doctoral research education (Ph.D.) in cultural history at the University of Turku and I have also studied leadership and macroeconomy in School of Economics of Turku. Furthermore, I also have a one-year study diploma in Entrepreneurship from The Finnish Institute for Enterprise Management. I have been working almost 30 years of researching art, looking very pedantry for every detail in artworks or their provenance, searching the very best quality of art, finding out a good price for a specific piece of art, also looking for who actually, in the art market, takes responsibility for that a specific piece of art is of high quality and really authentic.
And then one can ask oneself, “How did I, a Finnish art market expert also land in the field of healthy food?
I and my husband love Africa and we go there 1-2 times per year. I have many dear Kenyan and other African friends and love their attitude towards pure food and lifestyle that doesn’t allow chemicals and artificial adding into their body system. One of our African friends once asked me to taste her cayenne and turmeric. I did so without any special expectations, but felt so much better afterward, like it happened to my husband as well. So we started to consume body healing herbs for a longer time and became even more convinced how amazing results those can give. Then I started to search more about herbs, identified different research reports, and read about the mechanism of body absorbing vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, I read about the quality and differences between synthetic made medicine, vitamins and food supplements versus natural products. The only turmeric is very researched herbs so far. Many other information and reports exist but are very scattered and I have gathered information in order to get a good picture and versatile understanding of how to use herbs.
First I started to buy herbs from my friend's farm 2000 meters above the sea in Kenya and then my loving family came along bringing their own abilities, and experiences into our business. So now we take one step further to bring our products and our herb mission to the World!
