The story of Avanchy started in 2014, when our founder, Faisal, noticed a distinct lack of sustainable, Eco-friendly baby dishes. Father of 18 month old twins and an Eco-focused homeowner himself, he started thinking of the best way to serve organic foods without giving up on practicality: “You spend hours of research on the best organic ingredients for your family only to find that there are no true organic alternatives to serve them in?”
Faisal already had the requirements of the perfect baby dishes: they had to be made from sustainable, eco-friendly materials by means of ethical techniques and they had to be easy to use around children. Having learned from his small twins, meal time with babies tends to be quite messy, so the addition of a special suction cup to hold the dishes in place was a must.
After researching the market for more than half a year to find the perfect collection of baby dishes, but finding nothing that met those exact requirements, Faisal decided to design the baby dishes himself. Six months later, the prototype for the Avanchy Baby Bowl was ready to be tested by friends and family. Impressed with the idea, they encouraged him to expand it and make it available for parents everywhere.
Faisal reached out to Jorge, his now VP | Co-Founder, for support launching Avanchy to the public and together they focused on designing the rest of the line, plates and utensils as well as improving the original designs. And this is how Avanchy was born.
