About Us


We craft whole food snacks that make plant-based eating accessible and delicious.

The Take Root Rules of Thumb:

  1. JUNK-FREE. Absolutely no refined sugar or flours, preservatives or artificial additives.
  2. PLANT-BASED. No animal products. We highlight minimally-processed vegetables, fruits and other nutrient-dense whole foods.
  3. ADDICTING. Our flavors are 100% delightful. We want your taste buds to dance.


Take Root was born out of our passion to put more plants back into your diet. 

In our 20s, we were living in New York and suffered from auto-immune disorders, which occurs when the body's tissues are attacked by its own immune system. From skin problems to digestive issues to fatigue, you name, we had it. Though it seemed like the end of the world at the time, our conditions caused us to re-assess our lifestyles, overhaul our diets and improve our symptoms and overall well-being in the process.

We decided to leave our corporate jobs, return home to Manila, and embark on a mission to create plant-based food that nourishes the body and the soul.

Whether you’re just starting out or already seasoned in your wellness journey – we’ve been there, and we’re excited to help you LET THE GOOD HABITS TAKE ROOT.


To your health and vitality,
Monica & Aileen
