Meet Tamara and Liv

img-8990.jpg

Tamara oversees production and getting our meals into your hands. Making meals that don’t just satisfy hunger, but actually taste delicious, is very important to her.

Because her youngest child, Liv, has developmental challenges,  Tamara has started this company so that Liv will have meaningful employment in adulthood.

Liv will be the first employee of Enertia Trail Foods. She is involved in some aspects of production and in shipping. She inspires us to work hard for the things in our lives that matter most.
