When he found himself staring at the grocery store shelves wondering why there were so few meat-free chilis, Mitch Wolinsky decided to do something about it. He launched Manolo’s Best Farmstand Chili with his wife Yvette. Their goal? To create a line of chili that would be more flavorful, made with high-quality organic ingredients and that wouldn’t irritate his stomach like most of the brands he regrettably taste-tested.
“When I set out on this quest seven years ago,” Wolinsky says, “I decided that not only would I learn chili and healthy eating, I was determined to surround myself with experts from all areas of food design and collaborate with them to arrive at something very special and unique.”
