Meet the founder
In 2009 native-New Englander Navyn Salem founded Edesia to further the impact of Plumpy'Nut, a revolutionary ready-to-use therapeutic food. When you buy MeWe Baby, you’re not only helping children avoid peanut allergies, you’re also helping Navyn’s mission grow. Her goal is to have Edesia reach 10 million malnourished children by 2020.Donate Now
In 2007 I learned about Plumpy'Nut and how it was revolutionizing the way humanitarian
organizations could save the lives of malnourished children.
It was seeing children bounce back to life with such an easy solution that drove Edesia to develop foods that could also benefit people here at home, whether you’re seven months old or seventy years young.
