We’ve crunched the numbers and are asking for $12,500.00 which would cover the cost of renewing our 2014 health and business licenses. Trademark of our brand and covering the costs of bottles, containers, lids for both and labels in large quantities which would save us hundreds instead of the small orders we place right now. This would also cover for the next year the kitchen and market leases saving us a great deal as well because we lease week to week right now. New product lab analysis is very costly and we have several more products we’d like to submit to Whole Foods but we have to have this done first for them to even consider this. We will have to secure a co-packager and distribution until we have the capital to open our own co packaging facility here in So. Bend.

Risks and challenges

There won't be too many risks the main one will be getting an affordable co-packager which we are in contact with a couple already, and proper distribution. With the funds we will be able to secure what we need to move forward until we can eventually get our own facility to produce and package ourselves and to be able to hire a couple of people and be a part of the community to create some jobs.
