Joshua Sanchez Starts Indiegogo Campaign with a Funding Goal of $20,000 to Introduce Healthy Alternative Snack Gorilla Grub

Gorilla Grub is a one of a kind banana based chip with organic ingredients.


Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2013 -- Joshua Sanchez has always been an advocate of healthy living. 6 months ago, he was inspired by his 2 year old daughter to create a healthy snack that was not only good for her, but that she could enjoy. That's how Gorilla Grub Co was born.

Gorilla Grub CO fuses most of the principles and practices that every company should have or should eventually incorporate. The product’s main ingredient is banana. The organic compost made from the peels will be shared with organic farmers. This will make Gorilla Grub CO a product with zero waste. Through alternative energy sources (solar/wind), Joshua and team plans on reducing their carbon footprint dramatically. Only biodegradable materials will be used for the packaging of Gorilla Grub.
