Owner, Olive Seed LLC

Latricia Wright is a registered herbalist, youth fitness instructor and owner of Olive Seed, a certified woman-owned, small business enterprise. Olive Seed provides a comprehensive, yet simple solution focused on natural, holistic strategies to support and promote health and well-being through transformational workshops, cooking demonstrations and a host of healthy living products.

Latricia developed her passion after recognizing the immeasurable need for both primary and supplemental nutrition programs. Understanding that educating children is an important factor in promoting lasting healthy habits, Latricia created a curriculum and wrote a children’s book designed to help discern how wise food choices and daily physical activity are the building blocks to promoting health.

Following successful repayment of her first loan, Latricia applied for and received a second loan. She has used her loan funds to purchase additional inventory, marketing materials and fulfill additional sales orders.

LaunchDETROIT’s classroom instruction, mentorship and loan program contributed to the sustainability of Olive Seed. As a result, I was able to bring herbal honey to market six months ahead of schedule. Latricia Wright
