As a former tennis professional and the cousin of world famous tennis legend Rod Laver, Richard Laver and his wife Michelle founded the Santa Barbara, Calif. company Kate Farms for the sole purpose of their daughter, Kate Laver. At the age of four, Kate was failing to “thrive” and was faced with numerous difficulties. The meal replacement beverage her doctors prescribed was overloaded with sugar and dairy for calorie enhancement. As a result, Kate had many complications, including bottle rot, sleep apnea and digestive problems.
With their daughter not living an ideal life, the Laver’s decided it was time to take matters into their own hands. With the help of an industry expert they started to develop their own hypoallergenic meal replacement shake in their own kitchen. Together they blended 21 superfoods including but not limited to acai, mangosteen, black currants, raspberries, green tea extract, etc., with antioxidants, high protein and vitamin rich ingredients to fuel the body with the nutrition it needs and removed all the things that it does not. Within weeks Kate’s condition improved greatly and she no longer needed breathing treatment for sleep apnea, her digestion problems were a thing of the past and her mouth was once again healthy.
“We are very excited to debut Kate Farms at Expo West,” says Kate’s father, CEO and founder Richard Laver. “In today’s hectic world, it’s easy to lose track of what truly matters, our health. Kate Farms functional whole foods is determined to be at the forefront of the superfood revolution. Combining 21 superfoods in an on-the-go shake was one thing, but to make it taste great is what excites us the most. Superfoods is the future of a healthy diet and we plan on working hard to create breakthrough nutritional products that taste great and optimize the quality of people’s lives.”
Kate Farms’ Komplete Meal Replacement Shakes can be purchased separately for $4.29 at local California retailers.
