Culture and Team
Primal Kitchen fosters a culture of innovation and inspiration, built from a team of food-lovers and fans of flavor.
So Cal State of Mind
Primal Kitchen was founded in the food innovation capital in Southern California. We were born out of sunshine and raised in the warm, wellness-focused SoCal lifestyle. This mindset influences the inspiration behind our products and growth.
Co-founder and current President of Primal Kitchen, Morgan Buehler, has made waves in the food industry with her energetic leadership. She shares her journey as a female entrepreneur as the host of the Primal Kitchen podcast.
Primal Kitchen Under Morgan’s Leadership:
- Led Primal Kitchen through $200MM sale to Kraft Heinz
- Primal Kitchen is the #1 Brand at Thrive Market
- Primal Kitchen products are sold in over 16,000 retail locations, including Sprouts Farmers Market, Whole Foods Market, Target, Walmart, and Costco.
Primal Kitchen employees are our consumers. When we create a new product, the PK team taste-tests it for quality and crave-worthy flavor. We develop our products by consulting thought leaders in the real food space all the way to the parents of picky eaters!

Focus + Values
We know the power of good food. Primal Kitchen is proud to partner with local and national organizations to fight food insecurity. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Primal Kitchen donated products to medical centers, hospitals, and groups like The Farmlink Project to provide support.
Since 2019, Primal Kitchen has donated over 245,000 pounds of food to a host of community-driven charities.
It’s not just about this food or this sauce, it’s about a narrative changing the concept that you’re not getting America’s seconds, you’re getting some of the best nutritional product that’s gonna take care of you & your family. When organizations like Primal Kitchen step up to do things like that, it has ripple effects far past just the nutrition that’s provided.”
