About

Our product is unique in that we use no preservatives, fillers, gums or binding agents. No need to google our ingredient list. This simple fact sets our product above all other plant-based milks on the market.

There is NO CARRAGEENAN in MALK! Carrageenan is used as a thickening or emulsifying agent in most almond milks currently available on the market. Carrageenan has no nutritional value and can harm your digestive system and is banned from food products in many countries.

It's our mission to provide the cleanest, most nutritious and yet delicious milk alternative to everyone!

We have come to a point where we need to ramp up our production in order to meet the demand for our products. We now have an opportunity to provide MALK to multiple states starting in May and soon, globally.

This is where you guys come in! With your help, MALK can add new machines to the existing production line increasing our ability to fill orders. MALK is the cleanest product available on shelves and we want everyone to have the opportunity to purchase it. We want MALK to be in a grocer near you by the end of 2016, no matter where you live!

How we will use the money:

  • We need an additional line in our production, which means we need two costly pieces of production equipment. This additional line will help us to produce a much higher quantity of MALK and meet the growing demand for our product. This machinery is extremely costly but vital to our company's future.
  • While every ingredient in MALK is organic, we still need to be officially certified. This is an expensive endeavor but we feel it is crucial to our company. We're SO close to completing this milestone but need your help to finish up the process.

One way that we can reduce the price for our customers is by taking the most expensive part of our process in-house.

We don't use any heat during our process. We use HPP to extend the shelf life of MALK. HPP stands for High Pressure Processing. This ensures that you, the consumer, receive all of the vitamins and nutrients that mother nature intended. This is the most costly part of our production process, from distribution to the facility to paying for the processing, but it is necessary for us to provide you with a TRULY CLEAN plant-based beverage. As a stretch goal, any extra funding will go towards the goal of purchasing this very expensive yet highly important piece of equipment to keep the entire process in-house.

Shelf life of 28 days!

Risks and challenges

There are many risks and challenges associated with starting a food business. The demand for MALK has greatly exceeded our expectations. We just launched MALK in June at a Farmer's Market in Houston and now in February, you can find MALK in several big box grocers and numerous coffee shops and convenient stores throughout Houston, Austin and Dallas.

One challenge we now face is meeting the demand for MALK. We are doing our best as a family owned and operated business, but due to the need to produce in larger quantities we have had to hold off on expansion and fulfilling every request . The time has come for MALK to grow. Once funded, we will be able to use this money to purchase the proper equipment and fill any order that comes our way.
