Los Angeles, CA, – Founder & Creator of Tava Life, Raquel Tavares Gunsagar, along with partner and co-founder Lillian Wunsch, are proud to announce the natural food brand Tava Life will be re-launching as Fourth & Heart.
Tava Life was known primarily for their clarified butter called ghee, sold in a variety of popular flavors. Now named after the Heart Chakra, Fourth & Heart is a nod to the type of bold, intuitive decision-making that originally inspired Raquel to build a socially-conscious company. Raquel’s unique brand of flavored ghee launched a year ago as Tava Life. Since then it has garnered overwhelming positive press and successfully secured national distribution. Fourth & Heart’s products are thoughtfully created in a beautiful kitchen in Downtown Los Angeles’ Lincoln Heights neighborhood.
Since March of last year, Fourth & Heart has grown exponentially reaching nearly a seven-figure run rate in under a year in only 400 stores and continues to grow. “The demand is huge,” (Los Angeles Times) for Fourth & Heart’s delectable products, which are available across the country at high-end markets like Whole Foods, Central Market, Earthfare, PCC Naturals and online at Thrive Market. Part of this is due to ghee’s “many health benefits” (Huffington Post). Fourth & Heart’s grass-fed, pasture-raised ghee increases metabolism, aids in digestion, and is a natural source of vitamin-rich and highly-metabolized healthy fats like MCTs (Medium Chain Triglicerides). It’s also a perfect butter substitute for the lactose intolerant, and dairy-free.
In 2016, Fourth & Heart’s rebranding will include the introduction of two new flavors of ghee: White Truffle and Garlic. The celebrated classic flavors of Himalayan Pink Salt, Madagascar Vanilla Bean and Original will remain in the product line.
Consumers have shown great enthusiasm for Fourth & Heart, not only because of the brand’s immaculate natural food products, but also for its philanthropic efforts. Currently, Fourth & Heart donates a portion of its proceeds to Yoga Gives Back, a non-profit that provides micro-loans to mothers of young girls in India for work and education. Fourth & Heart participates in many local events, brings attention to venerable causes, strives to better both local and international communities through direct action and inspires others to do the same.
