San Franola Out to Sell Healthy Granola to the Greater Bay Area

San Franola Maintains Connection to Customers via Local Bay Area Farmer's Markets

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - If you're ever in town for a large Farmer's Market in the South Bay, chances are you'll be able to pick up a healthy bag of granola from the owners Matt and David, who station every weekend at various locations. San Franola Granola (http://www.sanfranolagranola.com), a health-minded granola company based in the San Francisco Bay Area, wants to always keep in mind what's best for the customer. With the focus on providing a healthy breakfast and snack option, San franola encourages customers to give feedback on what is top of mind for them. Is it low sugar, high fiber, high protein, omega 3s, low sodium, etc?

"By engaging with the community at local farmer's markets, we are actively present to discuss our product and its process," says David Miskie, co-founder of San Franola Granola. "Being conscious of the types of foods that we eat is very important. We get excited when people ask questions, as it means they understand their nutrition is directly correlated to their health," says David Miskie, co-founder of San Franola Granola.

In the past few years, a lot has occurred in the arena of public health awareness. Child obesity rates are a concern, as national efforts that emphasize healthy eating and physical activity are on the rise. Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative is one recent example of a campaign that is at the forefront in prevention by urging schools to serve healthier meals and promote physical exercise programs. Schools play a big role in educating the youth about health and nutrition, but it doesn't end there. Children need to be educated about the groceries they are buying, and the process of getting groceries to their local store. Farmer's Markets can contribute to this outside of the classroom education.
