About Simpli

The idea for Simpli OatShakes started in 2008, when U.S. émigrés and Simpli co-founders Helena Lumme and Mika Manninen were visiting their native Finland and tasted their first oat-based smoothie and decided soon after to bring it to the U.S. Simpli OatShakes are the first of many wholesome foods being introduced by Simpli.
