 We can do this, you and I, together!

I'm confident that I can grow Tofuna Fysh into a household name, and vegan food staple, all I need is a little help from you. My qualifications include a bachelors in business  plus 10 years of experience in marketing, project management, and sales. I also have a masters degree in education (with an ecopsychology specialization if you're interested). There is already so much interest in Tofuna Fysh, it's all very exciting! Time to take it to the next level.

Eating Animals: Animated Spoken Word

The goal of this video is to spread awareness and ask people to think about what they eat and where it comes from. It was quite expensive to produce - but well worth it! Your name in the credits for $25 bucks, or $50 with a tshirt!

What's the money for?

There are many, so many, costs associated with launching a new [food] company. In addition to the Tofuna Fysh veggie salad, I'd love to bring several other Fysh products to market such as: Tofuna Melts, Fysh sticks, Fysh Sauce, Fysh Chips natural seasoning, and more...

Risks and challenges

If I raise the goal, you will get your rewards. I will continue to post updates throughout the project and keep you posted. During the month of May, I will be working on getting Tofuna Fysh into more grocery stores throughout Portland and will gradually expand to other cities from there - with Seattle next. While setbacks do occur, I will always continue moving forward and growing the business into a position where social initiatives can become a high priority.
