CANDO PODCAST EP 14: Supporting Communities and Supporting Your Health Feat. Chuck Casano

Support, health, and innovation is the name of the game for Pitaya Foods. Chuck Casano founded Pitaya Foods in 2010 with the goal in mind of launching a mission-based brand that’s committed to promoting sustainable farming, supporting the communities they source from, and producing the healthiest products possible.

After leaving the concrete jungle of Manhattan during the 2008 financial crisis, Chuck Casano ventured to Nicaragua where he discovered an untapped resource for organic produce. Chuck’s biggest concern though was supporting the local farmers by connecting them to the United States market.

Fast forward to 2022, Chuck continues to honor his founding vision. Stepping foot in Nicaragua was Chuck’s CanDo moment, but working alongside his motivational team has proved to him that CanDo moments happen every day.
