Meet the Founders

Livliga® was founded in February of 2011 in Boulder, Colorado and was formally incorporated in March of the same year. The company was conceived out of the personal need for a solution to our supersized world surrounding eating. Sheila Kemper Dietrich, Livliga Founder and CEO, recognized the need to “right-size” our food environment through a suite of everyday products to support a healthy lifestyle.
