Aria Starus, CEO | Aria Starus brings a special brand of youth and passion to the specialty health food sector. Having grown up in a food entrepreneurial household Aria has been witness to many facets of the food industry at an early age. Her fascination with health food, production, manufacturing, nutrition, and research and development urged her to get heavily involved in Foodology her family company. Foodology, which began in the 1980′s has been an innovator in the health food movement. What started out as an urban farm has now developed into a well known local and national brand that is shipped all over the country. It is here where she gained a wealth of knowledge in sales, marketing, employee management and overall company operations. The mission of Foodology, “providing affordable health food to the mainstream community” carries over into her own business philosophy. In 2011 she started Foodies Urban Kitchen which provides small food companies the skills and tools to grow and thrive in the current food manufacturing landscape. Finally in 2012 she bought Healing Movement. She looks forward to growing this venture and educating the world on how to heal through pure foods.
