"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much"
NouriSol combines the words 'Nouri' for the nourishment of both soil and plants,
the French word for soil ('sol')
and the Swedish word for sun ('sol'),
reflecting our mission, the key ingredients of our product, and the origin of the co-founders.
