    We have seen a shift of wealth going to Amazon or big box retailers and away from smaller/independent grocers. We have also seen a shift of wealth to processed food manufacturers (as processed foods tend to be cheap and have a long shelf-life), but this of course is not great for local restaurants and artisan food manufacturers like us.

    Most small business owners are heavily personally invested in their baby/business, so lean times not only affect their business, it affects their personal life too. The local Starbucks is going to be just fine, they have access to so much capital, whereas small business owners aren’t as lucky. You vote with your money more than anything, what type of community do you want to live in?

    The hardest part has been having to show up at our production facility with strength and a level head when you don’t feel so strong inside. My anxiety levels are high, I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotions, and a lot of tears have been shed over the uncertainty, the lives lost, the hardships we are all facing and our worlds being turned upside down.

    It feels like we’ve lived the life of 10 businesses over the past month. We have been desperate to get our nourishing products back into people’s hands at a time when we need nutrients more than ever. So just last week we started a contactless delivery program for things that you can stock up on: our organic fresh or flash-frozen nut milk and oat milk, balls and bars, granola and a carefully curated retail selection.

    Raiz is a young beverage start-up providing adaptogenic drinks. After a few months on the market I realized that I was going to need to change the current business model to be able to scale. The timing however, came at the same time as COVID-19 started to hit, which unfortunately halted any plans for a relaunch.
