Raw snack food maker r.a.w. (real and wonderful), based in Hilliard, is now certified as vegan and kosher. Their current assortment consists of four lines: crackers, nut clusters, macaroons and granola. “We started with a passion for creating a very healthy and delicious snack that anyone could feel great about feeding to their own families,” explains co-founder Angela Zody. The 100% women-owned company began in 2011 as a small operation from home kitchens to farmers’ markets, and has steadily expanded to a full-fledged business that prioritizes providing employment for mothers looking to transition into the workforce. All their products are certified gluten-free and do not contain any preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, or GMOs. The snacks are available at most natural foods stores throughout Ohio, and at all Whole Foods locations.
