Skuta

A Pumpkin Seed Start-Up Venture

Jacob MacKellar, an enterprising farmer, has a dream to create a big brand from a small seed.

On a mission to introduce consumers to a unique variety of pumpkin seeds that has been cultivated for centuries by Austrian farmers, Jacob searched for a partner who both understood retail markets and had experience in creating large successful food brands.

Competing in the Crowded Natural Products Category

Knowing the steep competition in the natural products and healthy snack food categories, we explored a range of names that would be catchy, sticky and easily trademarked.

Skuta is a name inspired by the Algonquin word for pumpkin and squash.
