As a chef, Mariela Saravia (in white coat) had a dream to delight people with tasty food. After a few twists and turns in her career, she began producing artisan chips.
Mariela asked Bpeace to find her a volunteer expert to review her production processes and identify opportunities to achieve improvements in costs, quality, delivery and waste reduction. We matched her with Isabel Echeverria, a San Francisco-based Six Sigma Black Belt and Scrum Master.
Today, Mariela provides employment for 15 Guatemalans, mostly women. The multiplier effect of her branded sweet potato, taro, cassava, malanga and plantains chips extends to rural areas. Luachips is now a bridge between responsible farmers and Mariela’s customers seeking a delicious, natural and healthy gourmet snack.
