Our Mission

to provide the highest quality, nourishing convenience foods specially designed not to trigger food allergies or intolerances


to lead the industry to a new level of allergy and gluten safety and transparency.

Our Vision

a future where food companies are primary promoters and stewards of our health and the health of our planet.


At ZEGO, we know how difficult it is to find a healthy and tasty snack that meets everyone’s dietary needs. In my active household alone, we juggle Celiac Disease, lactose and gluten intolerances, food allergies, low-glycemic diets, and nut-free schools. But we found there was no food company trying to make nutrient-dense convenience foods that meet the needs of people with more than one of the most common dietary restrictions. And, there was no company going the extra step in allergen and gluten safety–testing all their all its batches for cross contact providing the test data to consumers. So, we decided to start the company to do that, and we call it ZEGO — zest on the go! We carefully craft our recipes from delicious and nourishing ingredients and test every batch for cross contact as part of our Z-Code Food Safety System. At ZEGO, our goal is to give you peace of mind. ~ Colleen and the ZEGO Team
