Veggie-Go’s are the chewiest, fruitiest way to LOVE your veggies! Veggie-Go’s are an organic, chewy fruit and veggie snack (along the lines of a fruit strip or a fruit leather) made with organic fruits AND veggies!
We have been making Veggie-Go’s for a little over a year now and have really made a splash in the Boulder area! We are in about a dozen stores in the Boulder/Denver area including a few Whole Foods (and a few elsewhere) as well as available nationally online! We also have a booth at the Boulder Farmers Market (one of the best in the country) where we sell out of Veggie-Go’s on a regular basis and enjoy chatting with customers and listening to the insights of little kids!
We currently make Veggie-Go’s in a local pie shop where we rent space. It has been a great place to start but now our demand is growing faster than we can keep up with in a shared space! It’s time to take a leap and get our own kitchen!
That’s where you come in. We are reaching out and asking for help with funding to fill our new kitchen with equipment. Luckily Veggie-Go’s are minimally processed so we need a minimal amount of production equipment to make them! But as anyone who has looked into commercial food production equipment knows, it’s expensive. We already have a fair amount of our own equipment, including our crown jewel dehydrator, but we need things like fridges, freezers and sinks.
Having our own space will allow us to grow and keep up with demand. We will be able to hire help and have our kitchen, office and warehouse in one place (so we won’t have to spend all day driving in circles!) We will also be able to buy ingredients in bulk which will lower our costs and allow us to use the resources for more important things, like getting Veggie-Go’s into more hands as well as reduce our waste! We will also be able to get our USDA Organic certification (a challenge when sharing space with a non-organic company.) Of course none of this will happen in an empty warehouse, the equipment is what makes it a kitchen!
More about Veggie-Go’s
Veggie-Go’s are like nothing you have ever tried before! They are similar in theory to a traditional fruit strip or fruit leather, but as soon as you try them your tongue and your body will know they have never had these before! Not only are Veggie-Go's good for you or your kids, they are also easy on the environment. We use compostable packaging, source ingredients locally from organic farms and of course use organic, GMO free ingredients.
