It’s the end of July.
We haven’t started shipping yet.
Instead, we’ve been busy doing this:
And a little more of this:
And waiting for this:
The rice protein arrived on Friday. Thank you, Axiom. The rest of the ingredients we need should be arriving within the next week or so.
The factory is starting to come together. It’s looking more like a place where something productive might actually happen, and less like a forgotten corner of a big, empty warehouse.
The clean room is looking pretty clean. No more paint flaking off the floor.
The shelves are starting to fill up. We’ve washed – and sanitized (you’re welcome, health department) – all the containers we’ll be using to mix and store ingredients.
We’ve got some comfy chairs and a shiny steel table to work on. We’ve got plastic strips over the door to keep the dust in. We’ve got some fancy scales to weigh everything precisely. We still need some thermometers and humidity sensors and an AC unit to make sure things stay dry and cool.
And we still need to find a supplier that can get us a custom multivitamin blend ASAP. We’ve got several inquiries out but we’re still waiting to hear back from them. If nothing turns up in the next week or so we’ll probably end up buying a case of vitamins and a coffee grinder from the nearest Costco. :p Just like the good old days.
I wish I were kidding.
So, we’ll probably be shipping in a few weeks. Early August if we’re lucky, late August if not. Don’t ask about September.
If you can’t wait that long, let us know. We’ll work something out.
See you in August.
