The History of Zellee Organic
Zellee Organic was founded by Erika Dowd, a mother of three living in Maui, Hawaii. Dowd was inspired by her own mother’s all-natural take on Japanese gelatin desserts and one of her children’s food allergies to create a delicious, allergen-free fruit snack. After hours of experimentation in the kitchen, taste-tested by her best friend Lisa O’Kelly, Dowd arrived at the perfect recipe.
Her children called it Zellee, the Japanese word for jelly. The first products made their debut at ExpoWest, one of the largest natural product showcases in the world, where they were selected as a finalist for NEXTY’s Best New Kids Product.
Today, Dowd, with O’Kelly on board as a co-founder, has spread the great taste of Zellee from Hawaii, to the mainland, and now out around the world. It began selling on Thrive Market in early 2018.
