    Our Story

    When Andrea was a dietician student in Colombia, skinfold calipers were so expensive and difficult to buy, that all the students shared the professor's one caliper.  In fact, to do homework assignments on the weekend, she'd have to bus for hours just borrow the skinfold caliper.  Together with Joe, they started NutriActiva to help nutritionists and dieticians around the world better access the equipment they need.
