Our founders



 


Unemployed after 19 years with the same company, two months into an unknown pandemic, and with 2-month-old twins. Andrea felt she had to re-invent herself; she knew right away whatever she was going to offer had to be healthy, nutritiously rich, and great tasting.

Unable to drink her morning coffee while undergoing fertility treatment in her native Bogota, Colombia, she recalled having delicious fresh fruit infusions, and that is in part how ILLA TEA was born.


Now at the Driver’s seat of her own company, she wishes to share this amazing, and many other nutritiously rich products that come from the most fertile lands considered the superfoods Pantry of earth, the Amazon rain forest.

I want to share all these unique products with everyone, all-natural products that my children and their generations would be proud of consuming without having any adverse consequences to their health.



 


Leo loves nature; he recalls his childhood morning, summer mornings, barefooted walks to the beach in South America, the excursions with friends in the coastal mountains of Peru, and the mountain hikes throughout the Western Slopes of the US.


When asked why did you leave Corporate America; we have greater responsibility and accountability to our Children than ever to leave a legacy of good; we would like to express that through our business and products, we not only provide quality, natural, healthy products that we can give our children, but we also want to teach them about equal treatment and mutual support, teach them that by helping others you help yourself and all those whom we encounter on this beautiful Odyssey, called life. I Invite all to try our product; you will love it! And the best thing is it’s Super Healthy!



 


Since I can remember, our parents have always made an effort so that in our family, breakfasts, fruits, herbal infusions, and all that natural product that was unique at that time were always present. Perhaps without knowing it, they intuited that their consumption was healthy and fortifying in the formation and growth of their children…. Characteristic smells conquered the corners of our house, those that were impregnated in my memory and that until now I remember with nostalgia and joy at the same time; My parents always wanted to provide us with the best food, to see us grow up healthy and robust, an arduous and careful task in a family of 11 siblings.

Unforgettable moments and aromas transport me in my imagination through the living room of my house, I see my mother serving us some infusion or fruit water. She would gather us to talk in the center of the table; with the hot liquid, we fought the harsh winter of the city of Lima. Perhaps that passion and eternal love, with which my parents fed us and ensured our well-being, are the force that now motivates me to be part of this project and continue with this work of providing health and well-being to all the people of the world, to through natural and artisanal products with excellent benefits and properties, planted and harvested in one of the most exotic areas of the planet: The Amazon Rainforest. We invite you to enjoy a new natural way of life, experience the ILLA way of LIVING..!!!!



 


The desire of our parents has always been to give us a healthy, natural and nutritious diet. ILLA was born with this same desire. We want to offer and make known to the world the delicious and exotic products with all their benefits and natural properties. These are carefully sown and harvested in the enigmatic and fruitful lands of South America, cradle of the majestic Empire of the Incas, thus narrowing and connecting the ancestral Andean, Coastal and Jungle communities, whose abundant products have been recognized worldwide as the richest Superfoods on Earth. Our Special Production Team has worked meticulously in choosing the first products, a difficult task given the immense quantity and variety of superfoods that this area offers, thanks to its cozy climate and productive lands.

Please allows us to introduce an excellent product that we put at your disposal today, with the assurance that when you taste and savor it, whether it is alone, amongst family or friends, it will be a unique and special experience for you as well. With love, gratitude and appreciation to our dear mothers: ELENA AND VICTORIA.
