Our Story

Hello! My name is Leo Cotter.

I was born and raised in Venezuela until I moved to the USA in 2016. I am actually an architect, and in 1998, decided to finally pursue a career in my real passion: the culinary arts. My driving force was to bring traditional Latin American foods into every home. In 2013, an idea popped into my head! For the next 5 years I started to experiment, test, fail and then test again, until I finally found the perfect formula to transform a culturally relevant Latin food into an everyday snack cracker. That is how Craize was born, by bringing visionaries and their ancestral flavors together to create a sweet and savory cracker with limitless possibilities.

What is CRAIZE? Wafer-thin, crunchy-bites of authentic goodness, the original Craize Snack Cracker is a Roasted Corn-Cracker based on the Arepa! A Craize cracker is the evolution of a basic staple that enhances today’s lifestyle: gluten-free, vegan, kosher and most of all tasty! The perfect canvas for a vast array of creative toppings – wherever your imagination takes you. The question is: Can you stop at just one?!
