Jolma-Founder of Amza Superfoods

Meet Jolma, the founder. 

Hello, I'm Jolma, founder of Amza Superfoods, LLC. I was born and raised in Rebbong (རེབ་གོང་།), Amdo region of Tibet. Growing up in Rebgong, a vibrant cultural hub known for Tibetan arts (literature, painting & food), I learned cooking at a young age from my beloved late grandmother, Sonam, who raised me.

My grandmother was born a nomad and illiterate. Still, she understood the value of education and told me, "To discover the world, one must move beyond her own kitchen."

That conviction led me to become the 1st girl from my village to earn a college degree and my journey from Asia to Europe to America, learning English from the ABCs at age 30. 

Despite facing many challenges, I built a successful career as a Product User Experience Designer, leading design teams and providing consultancy in the tech industry. However, I find more joy in making my kitchen utensils sing and dance and sharing my food and rich heritage with the people around me.

Inspired by Sonam and disadvantaged Tibetan women like her, I drafted a memoir cookbook, Beyond Her Kitchen, chronicling Tibet's healthy eating traditions and the stories behind each bite. This seed bloomed into a meaningful food business, Amza Superfoods, from my Portland kitchen.

What's in the name?

"Amza" hums like a prayer, spreading good vibes, the phonetic mouth of "Amdo food." The term "Superfoods" shouts the quality of our offerings, which are made of 100% natural, whole foods, clean ingredients, and ancient heirlooms like Tibetan purple barley and brown flax seeds. Each bite is a whisper of robust health that nourishes the body.

Amza's Mission
