Family Owned and Operated Since 2018

We are a family owned and truly a family run company. Cameral Mistal is the founder and co-owner of the organization, which he started in 2018.

His father, Jim, helped him set up the company and continues to work in Quality Control. Cameron’s wife Anna is also part of the team taking on the key roll of global logistics. The other primary owner of Happy Veg is Louis Hymel, who brings over 50 years of experience in the global produce industry. His family is also involved as Louis’s son Joseph has joined to coordinate operations at the two facilities in Peru.

We have consistently grown the team, now having employees on three continents: South America, Europe and our home base of USA, North America. Through vertical integration on ginger, turmeric and garlic, we are working to provide value-added products into the produce and beverage industries. At Happy Veg, we believe in creating win-win situations. Our values of integrity, honesty, and prioritizing God, Family, then Business, has led to a culture which we are proud to instill amongst our worldwide team.


FRESH Facility

Our fresh vegetable processing facility is located in Pichanaqui Peru. This is along the border of the Amazon jungle in a primary growing region for ginger and turmeric. Being located inside the growing region allows us to develop relationships and provide win-win results for our growers. We also produce Dried Sliced products here.

JUICE Facility

The new juice facility opened in the summer of 2022. We are capable of making juices, purees and various other products to supply the beverage and food manufacturer industries.

We Support Our Growers

Happy Veg truly cares about its community, both the farmers and the locals. We have always looked to identify ways and means in which we could support the farmers and locals on our team. The farmers often need simple support: for example, needing gasoline & diesel for creating roads or laying down a layer of rock on roads to prevent dangerous incidents during rainy season. Happy Veg aided with both projects. We also seek to help our farmers feel cared about. On their birthdays we would bring them cakes and look for other ways to support their families.

We also try to work with local charities and organizations to continue to provide support, love and happiness to the farmers & communities surrounding our operations. We know that it’s Gods commandment to love thy neighbor as thyself and it’s so important we as a company and people follow this. Both in business and in our personal life’s.
