At Go Raw, their mission is to help you eat better, feel good, and be your best self—with the world’s tastiest sprouted seed foods!
Go Raw products are passionately handcrafted with only simple, easy-to-understand ingredients, and are minimally processed to deliver the nutrition, protein, and energy you need to fuel your day. All Go Raw products are organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free.
It all started when their founder Rob was only 17 years old. His dad, concerned about his lifestyle, enrolled him in a holistic health program to introduce him to a healthier way of life. Rob was deeply impacted by his experience and committed himself to improving his overall health and well-being.
Inspired by the healthy food that made him feel so good in the health program, Rob created his first go Raw Sprouted snack. After years selling at local farmers markets, he was discovered by Whole Foods. The rest, as they say, is history.
As CEO of Go Raw, Tim oversees the market leader in Sprouted products that delivers healthy plant-based nutrition to consumers.
Prior to Go Raw, he served as President of Beanitos where he was responsible for the rapid growth of the brand. During his tenure at Beanitos, the brand realized strong double-digit growth annually in a competitive category. Beanitos consistently stood as a growth catalyst for the overall natural salty snack category.
Tim has had a successful career with large and small consumer products companies including Nestlé Foods, Weaver Popcorn, Brach’s Confections, Nestlé Waters, Sweet Leaf Tea, ONE coconut water and Beanitos. He joined Nestlé Waters (formerly the Perrier Group of America) in 1996 in Chicago and was quickly elevated to Zone Manager in Texas. He was then promoted to General Manager of the West where he led a team of 154 and grew the business across seven core brands that outpaced category and competitive growth. After successfully delivering year after year profitable revenue and market gains, he was chosen by Nestle Waters executives to lead the sales organization at Sweet Leaf Tea; a business that Nestlé Waters had invested in along with Catterton Partners. While at Sweet Leaf, he designed sales and marketing strategy that propelled the brand to +200% growth. At the completion of the sale to Nestle Waters, he joined ONE Coconut Water where Catterton Partners was a strategic investor alongside Pepsi. While at ONE, he spearheaded exponential revenue growth of 88% leading to the sale of the brand to Pepsi.
