aha Pure Foods Internship

Background on aha Pure Foods: 

aha Pure Foods is a plant-based soup company launched out of Gainesville with the mission to spread the philosophy that food should serve as the ultimate form of medicine. After our founder, Wayne Garland, was diagnosed with an incurable form of cancer and given only six months to live, he traveled to Asia and spent the next three decades conducting naturopathic research on the medicinal benefits that certain foods have on the body. 

After experiencing the first-hand benefits that food has on the body, Wayne teamed up with American Chef, Alfie Crescentini, in 2013 to integrate the world’s most powerful medicinal herbs, spices and vegetables into the Standard American Diet both deliciously and naturally. 

Together they launched aha Pure Foods. Packed with vital nutrients, antioxidants, probiotics, and fiber, each soup represents a culinary experience designed to supercharge the immune system.
