  • Kristy Lewis (Founder/CVO of QUINN)

    Kristy Lewis

    Founder/CVO of QUINN

    Kristy, a Boulder mom of three boys, launched Quinn Foods just three days after her first son, Quinn, was born, back in 2010. Out of frustration with the chemicals and artificial ingredients in her favorite childhood snacks, Kristy set out on a mission to revolutionize the food industry. She invented and patented their Pure Pop® microwave popcorn bag, which is the first bag to use paper that does not contain any synthetic chemicals or plastic coatings, such as PFOAs and PFCs. She continued her mission of making better-for-you classic snacks by launching a line of gluten-free pretzels; the filled pretzel nuggets were a first in the category.

    For the past 12 years, Kristy’s learned everything she can about agriculture, farmers, packaged food, the planet, and how they all connect. Quinn’s ‘Farm-to-Bag’™ Policy was created with the idea that transparency is the most powerful force for good in food and their ‘Be Better. Do Better.’™ mission takes these sourcing relationships a step further by partnering with growers to improve agricultural practices that will not only benefit them and their families but also the planet.

    Kristy was chosen by Whole Foods as one of the 'Women Makers: Raising the Bar' highlighting women and industry leaders who inspire and motivate others to create new and better products. She was honored as one of the ‘Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs’ by Fortune Magazine, and Quinn Snacks was named ‘Snack Producer of the Year’ by Snack Food and Wholesale Bakery.

    At Quinn, it's our mission to make real change to our food system by knowing that as a company, as humans, we can always be and do better.
