Tech companies weren’t the only startups that came to the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s Founders & Funders event. We met a couple of food company founders and even the founder of a sunscreen startup. Their interviews are below, in the final part of our series on Founders & Funders.
Kevin Carbone, the creator of Sauce Bae hot sauce from Skinny Flav, based in Howell, told us that his hot sauce tastes great, but also contains turmeric, which helps reduce inflammation.
“Sauce Bae is today’s new ‘go-to’ healthy hot sauce. It’s a pineapple habanero hot sauce that’s made with turmeric, an anti-inflammatory spice. The hot sauce is very low in sodium and truly all natural. So, if you had a checklist and compared it side by side with all the hot sauces on the market, it beats them in every aspect, including flavor,” Carbone said.
He told us the story behind his sauce, which is already sold in more than 1,600 retail stores. Ten years ago, when he was in college, Carbone was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and got so sick that, even with medication, he couldn’t go to his classes.
“That was rock bottom for me. The doctors said pretty much that diet didn’t have anything to do with it,” he said.
“I had a decision to make: Am I going to accept this fate that they’re telling me, that ‘it is what it is,’ or am I going to do something about it? I chose to go out and do something about it. And, on this journey, I realized that healthy eating is really just eating clean, real food, with no preservatives. And then I discovered that it was really hard to find healthy foods because all the health products are made more for the gimmick, and not really about looking out for your best interests. So, I discovered turmeric, and that helped me with my inflammation.”
The knowledge of how turmeric can help with inflammation led him to create something that had turmeric in it.
“I created the original recipe at the very end of 2017, spent all of 2018 doing R&D. And then, in 2019, I got a co-packer/manufacturer in North Carolina. Now, Sauce Bae is carried by the two largest national distributors in the country, UNFI and KTV, and it was featured on the multimillion-viewer show ‘Hot Ones.’ We’ve also received numerous celebrity endorsements.”
Talking about his background, Carbone admitted that it was far removed from food creation. He studied finance and later worked in analytics and forecasting. He said that his background helped him to become a startup founder.
“I’m able to approach any problem from an analytical perspective,” he said.
We asked Carbone about his meetings, and he told us that pitching was a new experience for him.
“So far, I got some good feedback. It’s nice to hear the investors give advice as to how I should approach speaking with them,” he said. “And I’m really looking forward to my next meeting, because they are the perfect investor for me.”
Zheng Song, founder and CEO of Angel Planet Foods, based in East Hanover, told us about this vegan and meat-alternative company.
“We fill the blank spot in the market. We provide consumers with a minimally processed, gluten-free and soy-free meat alternative that tastes just like meat, and also has the texture of meat,” Song said.
“We provide consumers with healthy and tasty alternatives, so they can reduce meat consumption without having given up anything. And this is good for their health and also good for the environment. Over time, with skilled production and supply-chain efficiencies, we will be able to bring the plant-based food cost down, as well and deliver value to consumers.”
We asked Song how her meetings with investors went.
“The meetings were very good. The investors did give us some good advice. They want us to focus on the scalability (of the product) to bring costs down and also to quantify each component of the process,” she said. “Some of the investors were interested in us, but said food is not their sector. But they gave us a very enthusiastic endorsement for what we do.”
“Also, we were very, very happy to meet with the NJEDA. We found that there are lots of resources available from the government to us, and startups and entrepreneurs like us. So, from all this, we thought that was a very, very productive meeting.”
Is there such a thing as a better sunscreen? Terry Zickerman believes so. At Founders & Funders, he told us about his natural, easy-to-apply sunscreen that is “safe for the body and the planet.”
“My family and I founded Love Sun Body (in West Orange) in 2012. We were having a discussion in Point Pleasant Beach, saying that we couldn’t find a safe and truly effective natural sunscreen,” he said. “We also were talking about sunscreen application and being able to find something that would be easy to apply and truly safe. So, we decided to make our own, and that’s how Love Sun Body was born.”
We asked Zickerman about his background. He told us that he is a medical doctor, and also worked on Wall Street for 20 years in institutional equity sales. He founded the company in 2012, but was working on the company and at Morgan Stanley concurrently until 2017. Then, he left Morgan Stanley.
“Another year went by and we launched the first of our product line, our body formulas SPF 30, and SPF 50, fragrance free and scented,” he said. “We launched those four formulas in 2018. In 2020, we launched a tinted facial product (along with several other products). And now, this year, we relaunched all nine formulas to be a little bit thinner and lighter application. These are the only sunscreens in America that are certified 100% natural by Ecocert in Europe.”
We caught up with Zickerman after he had been through four meetings, and he said his sessions all went well. One investor told Zickerman that he wouldn’t be the lead investor in a deal, but would invest if someone else took the lead. Zickerman said this would be the first institutional money his company would be raising, as he had been bootstrapping it with friends and family money.
“We are ready to expand the company both domestically and internationally, to expand it to Canada and Europe and increase our distribution and our volume significantly. That’s why we’re here to raise capital,” he said.

For 15 years Liquid Church has been committed to the Clean Water Cause, completing more than 350 clean water well projects, bringing safe drinking water to over 130,000 people in 9 nations!" said Lucas. “Profits from the new Clean Water Cafe will further this mission, helping us build new wells and expand access to clean drinking water for thousands of people across the globe.”

East Hanover, N.J. – Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Newark will host several open house events throughout Essex, Union, Bergen, Hudson, and Middlesex counties this fall to help Catholics gain knowledge and confidence before a difficult time arises for families.
“A time of loss is a time of confusion, and final arrangements do not have to add to the uncertainty,” says Andrew P. Schafer, Executive Director of the Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Newark. “The worries of last-minute burial arrangements should not become part of a family’s grieving process, especially when experiencing profound sorrow. We reach out regularly to families to inform them about the valuable benefits of preplanning.”
The first open house weekend will take place Saturday, Sept. 17, and Sunday, Sept. 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Gate of Heaven Cemetery and Mausoleum in East Hanover. There guests can learn about the new Chapel Mausoleum of the Resurrection expansion opening this fall, which will feature marble crypts, glass and marble cremation niches, and a new section dedicated exclusively to cremations.
The new section will also feature several works of sacred art, including a two-story mosaic of Jesus Christ ascending from the tomb. The mosaic was made exclusively for Gate of Heaven Cemetery by world-renowned studio Mellini Art and Glass Mosaics based in Florence, Italy, which has created acclaimed works of sacred art for the last 70 years.
The new chapel mausoleum also includes 14 lifelike statues of the Stations of the Cross handcrafted from wood made in Tyrol, Austria, almost 200 years ago. The sculptures were saved from St. Peter’s Church (formerly Queen of Angels) in Newark and were restored to their original glory.
To learn more, watch the video at www.GateofHeavenCemetery.org or stop by the cemetery. Memorial planning advisors will meet with visitors to share information about burial and cremation options, memorialization, and financial planning.

EAST HANOVER, NJ - The Township released a video on their website regarding their stance on the stray cats in the town on Tuesday, as tensions between them and Trap, Neuter & Return advocates continue.
The video, titled “East Hanover’s Response to TNR,” is a simple, four-minute video that shows images of trash left behind by those who come to feed the cats from out of town.
“These actions are clear violations of local law,” the video said, which also called the feeders “perpetrators.”
The Township had set up security cameras in the feral cat areas. The video also showed footage of the feeders captured in surveillance.
“Perpetuating feral cat colonies attracts unwanted visitors to East Hanover neighborhoods that are dangerous to humans and threaten community safety,” the video said, before showing footage of coyotes in the same areas the feeders were in.
The video goes on to explain the TNR program, referring to it as “Trap, Neuter & Release” when it is called “Trap, Neuter & Return.”
The township, citing the CDC, PETA, and the University of Florida’s research center, stated that TNR programs “have been found to be a waste of time, money, and resources” and have been “shown to fail to reduce feral cat populations.”
Advocates for TNR disagree on calling the cats “feral,” instead referring to them as “communal” cats.
“Feral is a behavior,” said Gail Baldassarre, Wise Rescue’s Feline Coordinator, “It is not a type of cat.”
Communal cats are domestic cats who have either been “abandoned, born, or lost by several generations to human contact,” Baldassarre said.
“They are no different, except they’re unsocialized,” said Terry Baird, a New Jersey registered trapper. “To minimize that is disrespectful.”
The township has “taken a better approach,” the video said. “Feral cats are trapped, neutered, vaccinated, and put up for adoption at the local shelter.” Cats who have not been adopted after a “state mandated period” are “transferred to regional animal facilities.”
The video ends with the Township promising that “those found to be violating local law have been and will continue to be prosecuted.”
