Paris, France born and raised, Thierry moved to LA in 1995 to pursue a career in the Food importing business. Bringing unique and innovative products to the U.S. was thrilling for Ollivier, who always had a spark to seek out the unknown. In 2002, Ollivier launched BrandStorm, Inc., pioneering the U.S superfood category introduction of sacred pink salt from the foothills of the Himalayas and Organic goji berries that quickly evolved into beloved household brands known around the world.As Ollivier’s search for superfoods not commonly known in the US took him around the world, he was drawn to the people, cultures and practices of the countries he visited, guiding him on a journey of caring and nurturing these relationships. These experiences set him on a path of ethical sourcing and caring for the soul, hence the business mission of BrandStorm/Natierra, selling “Superfoods with Soul”, and the creation of Natierra’s Feed a Soul Project.
Since its inception in 2017, more than 1 million meals have been provided every year (and growing) to children in need through the “Buy One Bag, Feed one Child” program.
