Our Story

IndriVanilla was first founded by Whitney Olsen in 2011. She was frustrated at the high cost of Vanilla beans, and found a farmer to purchase from directly.  IndriVanilla is named after Indri- the sister of the first farmer we ever worked with. We continue to purchase at fair trade prices, paying the asking price for our goods. This allows our farmers the opportunity to earn a living wage.  


Sara Anderson took over IndriVanilla in November of 2019.  She is a food enthusiast with a passion for all things homemade. She loves to experiment with new recipes and ways to use Vanilla. She and her Husband live in Northern Utah with their four children and 8 chickens. They love to garden together, and DIY as much as possible.


As a company we are committed to improving the world and giving back. We donate a portion of our proceeds to nonprofit organizations that improve the lives of those in difficult situations.
