About

We want to bring our Sprouted Craft Veggie Burgers to a freezer near you!

Good Seed takes the veggie burger to a new level with our commitment to taste and ingredient quality. We use only the purest sourced ingredients to re-create the American classic and show people that healthy food can be convenient and delicious. We provide a product that incorporates superfoods, the most nutrient dense ingredients, and high quality plant-based proteins while never sacrificing taste.

OUR PRODUCTS

We currently offer our Original Hempseed burgers and our Spicy Italian breakfast sliders for retailers and food service. We have 2 more flavors slated for release later this year.

What is in a Good Seed burger? Minimally processed whole foods. No additives, fillers, preservatives or chemicals. Nutrient dense ingredients and high-quality plant-based proteins.

Sprouted Beans and Grains- Sprouting increases vitamins and minerals , aids in digestion and makes the nutrients bio-available for absorption by the body.

Millet- Ancient nutrient rich grain.

Super Seeds- Pumpkin Seeds & Sunflower Seeds

Superfoods- Hemp and Chia

Mineral Rich Seaweeds- Kombu and Dulse

Fresh Root Veggies- Beets and Carrots

Fresh Herbs

Proprietary Blend of Seasonings

ROOTS

Good Seed Burger was inspired by Founder Oliver Ponce's studies in macrobiotic cooking and healing foods. The burger sprouted out of an organic plant-based food truck in Austin, Texas. We had a variety of popular fresh food items, but nothing compared to the demand for our veggie burger! Our regulars were returning almost every single day for the burger and people were constantly asking for containers of patties to take home.  We shifted our focus to our retail product so we can get these burgers into more people's hands!

OUR MISSION

1.Craft Foods- Minimally processed with simple organic ingredients.

2. Transparency in the Supply Chain- Only support farming practices that give back to the soil, the eco-system, and the people eating the food.

3. Inspire healthy living through culinary innovation, education and convenient food options

THE NEXT STEP- COMPLETE PRODUCTION SCALE-UP!!

Good Seed will use Kickstarter funds to finalize the scale of up our production at our co-packing facility.

Bulk Ingredient order- $15,000 We have a co-packer that has all of the right equipment and can produce our product for us. We spent 7 months on research and development and scaling up our batches to get the quality just right using time and temperature, not food science and additives. We need the funds to purchase our bulk ingredients and produce the minimum batches at our co-packer facility. Superfoods are not cheap! That is why we need your help buying in quantities that allow us to increase our margins and meet our 5,000 lb production minimum.

Printed Packaging- $5,000 We are currently hand-labeling our boxes which is expensive and time consuming. We have our design ready and our packaging sourced, we just need the funds to meet the minimum print orders. We can then package our product at our co-packer in our new boxes, and focus our time on getting Good Seed to a store near you!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges in any project, but we are confident that we have taken the steps to reduce the risk of any unforeseen challenges that may come our way. We have successfully produced our product in large batches over a 7 month time span to figure out any production challenges.

Since we are using some specialty ingredients that are growing in popularity we have sourced multiple suppliers for each ingredients to ensure that supply is not an issue. Purchasing in bulk helps us to ensure availability of our premium ingredients and offer an affordable price to our customers.

We have spent over a year preparing and consulting with experienced advisers in our industry to help us navigate the process and prepare for a larger roll out with as little risk as possible. If we do encounter any unforeseen issues that would delay our timeline we would clearly communicate this to our backers.
