Shane Stay, founder, is a bestselling author who owned a fusion restaurant for some 10 years which led to the creation of Leaf. In 2008, when Leaf launched, the idea of winning multiple awards was not even on the table! Okay...maybe a little bit. Everyone knew it was fantastic! The reason Leaf came about in the first place was that every day for years (literally every day for years) customers at Shane's restaurant insisted that he bottle it and finally after five years of hearing this, day after day, Leaf was bottled! Leaf never came from a lab, rather it came from customer demand! From the beginning, Shane has insisted that his role with Leaf is like being an agent for a young Brad Pitt on the verge of his first film; the talent of the product is like lightning in a bottle. To bring satisfaction and happiness to countless customers of Leaf is beyond amazing!
