About Us

our purpose

Gwell is Welsh for better.

We are a wellness company with one goal: live better.

Our food embodies this goal with only natural and organic ingredients, no dairy, no soy, no gluten, no artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers ever.

We thoughtfully select our ingredients to optimize wellness benefits in under 3 bites.

We are not in the business of making sacrifices when it comes to flavor. Our flavors our inspired by our culture and our family. 


our inspiration

Balance. We love a warm cup of tea just as much as we love a great cocktail. If you want to have your cake and eat it too, then you've come to the right place. We create effective wellness foods for everyday life with flavors inspired by our multicultural heritage.

Here you won't have to choose between your dietary needs or food sensitivities and a satisfying snack.


our founder

Our founder started gwell with the goal of making more approachable wellness foods available for all. Gwell bites started as a snack she made at home for herself and became a snack her friends and family stole from her frequently. She selected ingredients to help with issues she faced, from hormonal imbalance, skin issues, to stress and restlessness. Using natural options she helped herself to find better balance in her life. As a ex-self-proclaimed workaholic she felt that everyone should have satisfying options to find balance that resonate with who they are.


our community

We intentionally built our business, starting in our local neighborhood of Harlem, where food deserts are common. Since inception, we’ve partnered with local organizations to expand access to wellness education and contributed to organizations that support improving equitable access to food. Our mission as a business is to improve food equity. Learn more here

OUR FOUNDER ON OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO OURSELVES AND OUR COMMUNITY:

I realized I left out a big part of my motivation. I always say that I founded Gwell to help people to find the balance they are seeking, but it is more than that. The food we eat has a significant impact on our health and well-being. I wanted to create clean foods that actually help you to function better without all of the nasty ingredients that can harm you long-term.
Women in particular face challenges such as fibroids, infertility, and either hair loss or excess hair growth stemming from hormonal imbalances that foods in our food ecosystem perpetuate.
We can do better for ourselves and our families.
Our goal at Gwell is to make it easier.

Fawziyya’s favorite flavors: Japanese Matcha Bites + Turmeric & Coconut Gwellnola
