Welcome to Baby Food 3.0. 

Say goodbye to the guilt of giving your baby, over-processed, pasteurized, additive-filled, conventional, store-bought baby food.  

Say goodbye to hours of washing, prep, peeling, chopping, steaming, blending, dividing, freezing, and clean up of making baby food at home.

Keen Bean Baby Blends are beautifully curated, cold-blended, organic, non-GMO, preservative free, additive free, real meals for your little (6 months +) that are conveniently packaged for families on-the-go.  Think ultra-premium cold pressed juice meets baby food.

We use cold pressure innovation to keep the food we make REAL.  Real texture, real color, real taste, real nutrition.  Do you boil your avocados or strawberries before eating them?  No? - well that's how conventional baby food is made.  Keen Bean was created to make first class health a convenient part of your little one’s daily eating ritual.  No fake sh*t!

 As we continue to expand our vision for today and the future, all funding from this Kickstarter campaign will be used toward the following projects:  

Our Team: Team Keen Bean means everything to us and we believe in investing in our team members. We aim to add several new hires, as well as provide added benefits and greater training programs.  

Our Operations: We we will complete our final round of certification testing and start our first round of production.  *High-Five!!*

Simply put, we want you to be a part of Keen Bean Baby Blends so we can grow together and feed babies real food.  

We already have the contracts in place with a reputable and amazing manufacturer in Southern California.   

The formulations and packaging design are complete. Now, we just need YOUR help to raise the funds to begin production and ship all the Keen Bean Baby Blends YOU ordered.  We plan to start shipping our Kickstarter production late August/early September 2017.

Your support will also allow us to develop more awesome products and get them into your hands faster.  As a backer, you’re a Keen Bean family member for life!  You will be the first to know about our new products and will be encouraged to send your comments, questions, and feedback directly to Team Keen Bean.

Join the movement. Let's feed babies real food!

Keen Bean Baby Blends are made with wholesome, non-processed, the-way-it-should-be ingredients. Of course, all of our ingredients are organic and of the highest quality.

Basically, from farm to mouth, we are pretty cool. We use intense cold pressure instead of heat processing to maintain the integrity of the ingredients, while at the same time, ensuring our blends are safe.

Fellow Parents! Just look at the difference. This is real food!

 

ALL of our blends are made with 100% organic, non-GMO, real food ingredients, and that’s it. ALL of our ingredients are listed on the front of the pack. No hidden surprises!

We are parents too, and the proof is in the pudding.  Our blends are conveniently packaged in pouches, which allow your baby (6 months+) to feed themselves (spoon free, dish free, mess free), when you are on the go (real life).

At formal eating times, they can also be served to a spoon or in bowls so your baby can learn those essential mealtime skills.

Here's How it Works: We want to spread the word on Keen Bean Baby Blends far and wide so we can help as many parents as possible, save time and still provide really, really, good baby food to their little ones aka WIN PARENTING.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Paediatric Society both recommend to exclusively breastfeed or use of infant formula for the first 6 months of life.  

  • Our blends start at ages 6 months onward however they are so healthy and yummy we recommend for all ages.  The blends are great, healthy snacks for toddlers, preschool, school kids and all you "work" kids ;)
  • Our blends must be kept cool or refrigerated as fresh foods ought to be. Keen Bean Baby Blends will last for up to 45 days unopened in the fridge.  
  • We plan to start shipping our Kickstarter production late August/early September 2017.  If you want to buy now and ship later that can be accommodated.  We will get all that info at the end of the campaign.
  • We are currently pending final certifications for USDA Organic, Non-GMO, FDA (USA), and CFIA (CAN) compliance.  

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

* *If you would like to order multiple quantities of rewards - simply add the corresponding dollar amount to your pledge when selecting the reward. 

Example: To order a 2 months (120 packs) --> Select 1 month reward ($160) and add another $160 for extra amount.  For 3 months (180 packs), it would be $160 for 1 month plus $320 for the 2 additional months. 

Once the campaign is completed, we will clarify the quantities through the backer surveys before we start production.

   

 Delivery to Your Door!  

Shipping perishable food is tricky business. 

  • In order to ensure your product stays fresh in transit we will be using a special liner inside a recyclable box, to add a recyclable cool pack, and use 1 day shipping (depending on your location). 
  • When your package ships we will send you a confirmation email with a link to track your order. This applies to subscription shipments and a la carte shipments alike.     
  • Keen Bean also offers a subscription model for your convenience. We are offering super deals if you sign up for this plan so check it out!     
  • For our Kickstarter orders, the minimum order will be one (1) case which breaks down to 12 individual baby blend pouches. Each case will consist of the same blend to ensure we deliver in timely fashion.  
  • We plan to start shipping our Kickstarter production late August/early September 2017. If you want to pledge now and ship later that can be accommodated (within 3 months). We will get all that info at the end of the campaign.

Transparency and honesty are two fundamental values for us here at Keen Bean which is why our packaging provides our fellow parents with clean information they need to make the best informed decisions for your little ones.

 

 Our difference is our process, the nutrition and the taste - we start from raw and use cold pressure technology to maintain the integrity of the ingredients we use.  Rooted in science, focused on health.  We come from a cold-pressed juice background so have in-depth knowledge of the process. We hand picked our farms to work with the most nutrient dense produce for our baby approved recipes. Unlike others, we are never cut with cheap fillers. We are 100% organic, 100% non-GMO, cold-blended, cold-pressured in a zero waste facility, we are the future of baby food.

 

 

 

 

 

Early-Bird Discount: You get the lowest price possible on Kickstarter, at a steep discount from our expected retail price.  We plan to start shipping our Kickstarter production late August/early September 2017. If you want to pledge now and ship later that can be accommodated (within 3 months). We will get all that info at the end of the campaign.

Kickstarter Backers Come First: You're helping us launch Keen Bean to the world and we really, really appreciate that. You'll be at the front of the line to receive Keen Bean Baby Blends before anyone else, and your feedback will shape the future of the product.  You will be the first to know about our new products and will be encouraged to send your comments, questions, and feedback directly to Team Keen Bean. 

We Need You: Simply put, we wouldn't be able to grow Keen Bean Baby Blends without you!  Your continued support will allow us to complete our final round of certification testing, start our first round of production, develop more awesome products and get them into your hands faster. As a backer, you’re a Keen Bean family member for life!

Risks and challenges

Food safety is of the utmost importance to us as a company and as parents. We will NEVER compromise when it comes to this. Even though all of our ingredients have been certified organic, we have added an additional step in our processes to have a third party lab test our ingredients before we use them.

We've already solidified partnerships with our manufacturing facilities and farm fresh ingredient suppliers. We have also already completed preliminary validation studies, certifications, and regulatory compliance so that we're ready to hit the ground running as soon as we raise the necessary capital.

Of course, there's no such thing as zero risk. Should any unforeseen circumstances arise, we have lined up back-up suppliers, manufacturers, and built extra time into our delivery timelines to ensure we can fulfill our reward commitments on time. There are risks involved with our final validation process and we have addressed this by having developed similar formulations and framing alternative ingredients.

Most importantly, we are committed to transparency and open communication. Our backers will be the first to know if any issues arise that may affect our delivery timelines.
