About

Have you ever brought your own tub of vegan sour cream to a restaurant?

French fries, baked potatoes, house salads, bread, steamed vegetables... there are more readily-available vegan items at restaurants than you may know. The problem is...nobody wants to eat an un-loaded baked potato. And who enjoys steamed veggies without (vegan) butter? Those tater tots sure would taste better with some ranch dressing or mayo.

Wondering about how "green" our campaign is? See our update on this subject here.

It's Time To Start Enjoying Your Vegan Meals Out Again.

#VeganPackets is a team project that was started by a group of colleagues at a web design firm in Minnesota. The busienss idea was inspired by a colleague who has been a vegan for more than 15 years. Vegans everywhere have become accustomed to toting condiments around with me - full tubs of Tofutti Sour Supreme, a squeeze container of Just Mayo, little plastic tubs of Earth Balance Vegan Margarine... 

Just this past week Jessi (our resident Vegan) visited the Minnesota State Fair, and knowing that the Fried Pickles right at the park's entrance were 100% vegan, she actually made a batch of vegan ranch and brought it to the fair so that her family would have something creamy to dip the spicy, hot, fried, delicious pickles into.

This is where our story starts. 

Our goal is to make vegan condiments readily available, in travel sized shelf-stable packets. Currently, Hampton Creek (the maker of Just Mayo) produces individual mayo packets - but they are only available to buy by the palette - a quantity that is inaccessible to vegans for many reasons.

Our first goal will be to secure enough vegan packet orders (through this KickStarter, or course) to cover the cost of a palette of vegan mayo, and begin distribution via our retail website. 

But it doesn't end with the mayo.

There are a number of vegan-certified condiments already available in shelf-stable packets (ketchup, mustard, vinegar, etc) - these will soon be added to our line of packet distribution, and will be marketed to health conscious consumers and vegans alike. Currently, there aren't many companies that produce specialty vegan condiments in shelf-stable individual serving sizes (think: ranch, Goddess dressing, butter). Once we have the funds to start marketing Vegan Packets, we plan to approach manufacturers and distributors to wholesale specialty vegan condiments, for us to either package or distribute on the retail market.

 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge will be to successfully procure the minimum palette order of vegan condiment packages, in order to distribute them in reasonable quantities to the average consumer.

Once we have obtained the packets, our efforts will be focused on marketing: advertising, video production, word of mouth, and grassroots methods to make our product known. And then we work on packet diversity: ranch, sour cream, butter alternative, cream cheese...everything you need to take with you on your week long vacation.

And of course, there is the cost of shipping product and staff to manage the business.
