Our story starts three years ago with two brothers, two backpacks, and one wild adventure...an adventure that would open their eyes to healthy foods around the world. With their hearts set on exploration, Luke and Matt Geddie ventured through Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, India, and Vietnam with a desire to see and experience everything nature had to provide.
From working as consultants for Thai businesses to volunteering at orphanages in India, the two brothers were building relationships and experiences to be told for the rest of their lives...and yet, the memories would soon be eclipsed by the opportunities waiting for them in Vietnam.
Within the borders of this beautiful country, Luke and Matt found a culture of friendly, humble people living among the lush ecosystems spread across Vietnam. The pristine land, as with the people, showed no signs of wars from the past, only an array of colors from fruits, vegetables, and grains grown in the fertile soil of the jungles. What they found was an abundance of healthy foods.
What Luke and Matt had gained was much more than memories to share; they gained a vision for the future of Vietnam through an idea to support the local community. An idea that would share the natural foods they had found in Southeast Asia.
What was the first natural food? Skinny Coconut Oil.
During their travels, both Luke and Matt saw the opportunity to build a partnership that could benefit local business with 100% RAW coconut oil. That's when they partnered with Kim Vo (Operations / Asia) in Vietnam.
With the help of Kim, Luke built an import/export business called "Catchrs" to bring the jars of "coconut heaven" directly from the Ben Tre jungles to our doorstep here in Indianapolis, Indiana...the Crossroads of America.
Together with their mother, Joy Reese, and Kim in Vietnam, Luke and Matt formed a company to bring healthy foods to America while helping the people of Vietnam.
