A local health food startup has planted the seeds for a new headquarters.

Health Warrior, which produces products using chia seeds, signed a lease to move into a 2,200-square-foot office in Scott’s Addition. The company, founded in 2011, has been headquartered out of the home of chief executive Shane Emmett.
