Adding Color, Taste, and Nutrition into your Diet with Seth Karm of Salad Savoy®


“Salad Savoy® is a one-of-a-kind veggie that grows in bright violet and white heads”

In this week’s episode, Lori has a conversation with Seth Karm of Salad Savoy®. Salad Savoy Corporation is the brainchild of John Moore in 1983, following a trip to Sweden. While he was there, he visited a vegetable garden and was struck by what he saw, and tasted! Through detailed research and development, not only did he create an entirely new vegetable, trademarked under the name Salad Savoy®, he named his entire company after it.

“I’ve made a ton of Kale chips using every variety of Kale, but nothing tastes as good, and cooks up as evenly as the Salad Savoy® chips”

From Sweden to Salinas, California, where it currently calls home, John knew Salad Savoy Corporation was going to be the next big thing. He was so confident in its success that he formed a family business around it. Salad Savoy® officially entered the marketplace in 1984. Soon after, it was recognized by Venture magazine as one of the “100 Best New Ideas of the Year.”

“All of our items at Salad Savoy® are Non-GMO. We don’t do any type of genetic editing.”
