Risks and challenges
Since we have been in production a couple of years we understand that there can be challenges to overcome.
Purchasing snack sized bags is pretty straight forward, as it will be supplied by the same company that currently makes our packaging.
If there are issues with the bagging equipment we will keep on keeping on and continue filling each bag by hand.
If we cannot make it into vending machines we will continue to push for expansion into other regions so that we can strengthen or brand recognition.
