OlyKraut has handcrafted their delicious sauerkrauts, pickles, and sipping brines in Olympia, Washington since 2008. Using centuries-old preservation techniques and sourcing the best possible ingredients, OlyKraut has developed original recipes you can enjoy at the Olympia Food Co-op, both packaged in our coolers and ready-to-serve on our eastside salad bar.
OlyKraut’s founder, Sash Sunday, discovered that the best way for her to contribute to the food system and economy she would like to see is by putting her fermentation fanaticism to good use turning regional farmers’ produce into delicious sauerkraut. Sash graduated from the Evergreen State College where she focused on food, fermentation, and sustainable agriculture and earned her MBA in Sustainable Systems at Bainbridge Graduate Institute at Pinchot University.
OlyKraut has met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency to become a Certified B Corporation and been the proud winner of several grant competitions, including the University of Washington’s Jones + Foster Accelerator, Edg3 Fund, and Eileen Fisher Grant Award, all strong votes of confidence.
