15 AAPI Women-Owned Food Brands You Need On Your Shopping List
Growing up in central Seoul, Annie Chun never ate packaged seaweed. Instead, her mother would dry, roast, and make it from scratch at home. Wanting Americans to experience the snack the same way she did as a child, Annie and her husband, Steve, started gimMe, the first USDA Certified/Non-GMO Verified Organic seaweed in the US.
GimMe's seaweed is sustainably grown in the clean, nutrient-rich waters of the protected South Korea coast, harvested from the first winter crop, and cut while still on the water. As a result, the seaweed you get is at peak taste and texture. The brand's best-selling gimMe Sea Salt Premium Roasted Seaweed ($7) is light, crispy, packed with umami flavor, and only made with three ingredients.
