Getting Ready for Batch 1
January 11, 2012
We’re getting ready to make Batch 1 (!!) -and things have been **extremely** busy over here. It feels like each day is filled with a crazy jumble of activities – from calling ingredient suppliers, dealing with logistics, to re-testing final ingredients and prepping for initial calls with buyers. To top it off – we just barely finalized the steps for roasting and flavoring our chickpeas.
Along the way – I knew that somehow, no matter how much I double and triple checked things – a mistake was bound to happen. And it did happen – right after New Years. I realized that I put the wrong bar codes on a set of labels that were just about to be printed. After a mad dash and some frantic calls (where I tried to sound very calm) to our case box label printer – I was able to fix the almost-disaster, and labels are now on their way to our manufacturing facility.
Nevertheless – things are slowly starting to come together for this first batch – and hopefully, we’ll actually have some snacks soon!!
PS – the mysterious picture above is of our packaging! It has finally finished printing and has reached our manufacturing facility!!! It was amazing to see the packaging in real life – take a look at this pic below.
