Small business owner Nona Lim learned to love cooking from her father as a child growing up in Singapore. When she wanted to create her own company, it was important to her to bring healthy food with Asian-inspired flavors to her busy customers short on time but searching for a wholesome meal. At Nona Lim, what they don’t put into their products, such as preservatives, is just as important as the fresh vegetables and ingredients that are included. Lim’s company has grown from a one-woman shop selling locally in the San Francisco area to a national brand carried by grocers throughout the country.
