Thank you so much for your continuous support! You are amazing!

Some of you have asked me if I get the amount that's pledged, even if I don't reach the target goal of $35k by Sunday. No, I don't. Crowdfunding is all or nothing at all.

This is why every single pledge counts. If you have had people you know say they want to pledge, but just haven't had the time to do it, please ask them to pledge today. 

This is such an exciting adventure I am on, and I'm so blessed to have you by my side! I love that I am accountable to you. As a supporter, your pledge is part of the equation that enables me to build my kitchen. And this will mean being able to provide paid internships for those awesome single mamas out there who are just looking for a way to be part of a team, to feel valued outside of the home, and to build their confidence to go out and live their dreams. 

Being able to help mums in this way means we are helping their children. Our future. It gives me goosebumps.

And the fact that you are helping me create this, it just blows my mind! I am a true believer that what we give out comes back tenfold. Look out world! 

You have given to this project.

You have already started changing the future for yourself and others in that one action. 

YOU ROCK!

Hi! My name is Belinda, and for the past two years, I've been building & nuturing my business, The Honest Food Company

 

Starting as a small enterprise selling free range egg white protein, The Honest Food Company has grown into a business that makes hand-crafted, raw, high-protein foods like bars, balls and cereal mixes. I'm all about creating real food that tastes delicious. All my food is grain-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. Ingredients are ethically sourced and organic.

Right from the beginning, I've had a dream to turn The Honest Food Company into something bigger. I'm passionate about real food, and about giving single mothers a path into full-time employment.  My ultimate mission is to change lives.  To be able to provide bridging jobs for single mamas getting back into the workforce is a driving goal behind The Honest Food Company. I want to help build these women's confidence and self-worth, to bring about a personal transformation. They'll feel part of a team and learn new skills so they can get out there and reach for the stars.

Which leads me here. I've found a space in Onehunga, Auckland, which will be perfect for expanding The Honest Food Company, but I need some help to set it up and get it running. Getting my own space means a few things:

  1. I can increase production and deliver 5 days a week. This allows me to start supplying to specialty supermarkets and cafes, and means consumers can get hold of my products on-demand!
  2. I can hire people! I'm passionate about giving back to the community, and I want to provide a path back into employment for the talented single mamas out there!
  3. I can pass on my knowledge. I am a successful entrepreneur, a personal trainer & food coach, mentor, and motivational speaker, and I've been grain-free and dairy-free for a long time. I've got a lot to share, so the space is able to be used for workshops as well.


The space for all of this to happen is secured, but it's a blank slate! I need to get council permits; appliances like a dishwasher and a fridge; benches to work on; three (!!) sinks (it's a council thing); and cover the rent long enough for the kitchen to be up, running, and supporting itself.

Together, we can change lives.

 

Become an Honest Foodie

Every backer becomes an Honest Foodie.

What does this mean?! No matter how much you pledge, you'll get:
- Your name on one of our walls as an eternal gesture of my gratitude.
- Exclusive offers - I'll periodically send you out special offers and early-looks at new products.
- Exclusive competitions - Every so often I'll run competitions with entry open exclusively to Honest Foodies.

 

Sample Packs!

Maybe you're interested in The Honest Food Company, but you want to sample my products.

Firstly - good on you! You're about to enter the world of real food that tastes amazing!


 

I'm offering special sample packs just for my backers. You'll get a bit of everything to sample, including:

  • A protein bar
  • Protein pops
  • Serial Primal Protein Mix
  • Free Range Egg White Protein Powder


You'll need to come into The Kitchen to pick your samples up. We'll be located in Onehunga, Auckland. If you need us to send it out to you, please add $5 for domestic shipping, or $10 for overseas.

 

Pledger Party

We're planning an exclusive backers party in Cornwall Park. This will be held in the Spring. Your ticket gets in one adult and one child - it's a real family event!

The party will be grain & dairy free and we'll be catering it from The Honest Kitchen over the road. You'll get to hang out with other backers, meet our special guests, see your name on our Backers Wall and celebrate Spring in one of Auckland's most beautiful park.

The first 50 backers will also get a special VIP ticket. This gets you into the event at a cheaper rate, AND you get a VIP bag filled with goodies and offers.

Honest VIP

Love to try new exciting foods? Are you always held back because you can't eat gluten, grain, dairy or sugar?

Well, I love experimenting in the kitchen, and everything I create is grain, dairy and sugar-free!!

If you become an Honest VIP, you'll get the sample pack, AND you'll also get samples of ALL my new creations for the rest of 2014! You're guaranteed at least five new products to try and give feedback on. Let me know if they're worth making available to everyone!

Some past examples of my test kitchen experiments include salt and vinegar activated almonds, using pink himalayan salt & organic apple cider vinegar. And vegan bacon flakes, made with organic coconut chips!

How the funds will be used:

  • $10,000 will cover the first 6 months of the lease
  • $13,000 will cover Stage 1 of the fitout of the space
  • $2,000 will cover council fees & permit requirements
  • $4,000 will cover professional consultant fees
  • $4,500 will cover the costs of your rewards
  • $2,500 will cover the fees charged by pledge me.


Total of $36,000

Some of my other work

I've been running  The Honest Food Company for the past 2 years. Prior to that I created my first product Eggcel, which was a true godsend to those looking for a dairy free protein. Here I am back in the day with some folk you may recognise in these old videos! 

We're also on FacebookTwitter and Instagram! Love connecting with my tribe on social media, so please like, follow & connect.

Challenges

The landlord of this space is as excited about this as I am - so that's in the bag. I get the keys 1 June. BOOM!

I'll have to do some work with council permits. I've been in talks with them over the last month to find out what I need to do. The costs for this could increase, in which case we'll get clever with our fit-out or work extra-hard to get this thing up and profitable before our 6 months is up.

In terms of your rewards - I either already have them, or I already have the space to make them. They'll be in your hands come hell or high water!

01/06/2014 at 2:16 PM

 

It is really, really REAL! This morning I picked up the keys to the space that will soon be The Honest Food Kitchen thanks to you. 

 

keys to The Honest Food Kitchen

 

I can't stress enough that crowdunding is "all or nothing", so to make The Honest Food Kitchen a reality, the target needs to be met by Sunday 22 June, 8pm (NZ time). Please share the campaign page with all your networks, and let them know that you have pledged.

https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/2172

 

I walked around the space, visualising what it will look like once The Honest Food Kitchen is built, once the target has been met.

Imagine, an awesome team of mamas lovingly handcrafting your grain, dairy & sugar free protein bars through a paid internship programme. 

This is MASSIVE. You are a part of this journey. Your support is mindblowing. I believe that what we are doing here is beyond life changing. A mighty goal, a well thought out plan, a desire to be of service while creating a profitable business that gives back. Profit with a purpose. 

YOU ARE AMAZING. 

Love

 

What happened?

30/05/2014 at 1:35 PM

If you've been following The Honest Food Company lately, you'll know that early this week I launched a campaign on Pozible.

 

The campaign started really well, picking up nearly $2000 before lunchtime. But then the site went down for 3 hours and things started to get a little weird.

 

Our pledges grew much slower than expected and I got complaints from several backers saying that they couldn't pledge to the campaign due to a PayPal error.

 

I got in touch with Pozible, and was unimpressed with their handling of these problems. Their solution was to ask you, our wonderful backers, to muck around with PayPal, delete all your bank details, and try again. This was not an acceptable "work around".

 

So I've made the incredibly difficult decision to pull the Pozible campaign and move to PledgeMe.

 

This is a risky move for me, but one I think I have to make. You need to have complete reassurance that this campaign is not taking you for a ride, and I don't feel that the way Pozible has handled this situation gives either of us that reassurance.

 

So now I'm here, and your support is more important than ever. It's vital that I make the campaign goal. The rewards are still the same, as is the closing date.

 

If you've come over from Pozible, I want you to know three things:

  1. You are amazing.
  2. Your credit card will only ever be charged ONCE, by PledgeMe, and only if I make my goal.
  3. By re-pledging here, you're going to get an extra-special little something because you really are incredible, and I want to apologise to you in the best way I know how.

 

Going forward, this campaign is ONLY running on PledgeMe. If you want to share the link with your friends, please share this one. I am currently working on pulling down the Pozible site.

 

I really am sorry about the mix-up and hassle. I'm hoping we can put this behind us and move on to make the Honest Food Kitchen a reality!

 

Love & light

Belinda xx

    Hi! My name is Belinda, and for the past two years, I've been building & nuturing my business, The Honest Food Company

     

    Starting as a small enterprise selling free range egg white protein, The Honest Food Company has grown into a business that makes hand-crafted, raw, high-protein foods like bars, balls and cereal mixes.

I want to help build these women's confidence and self-worth, to bring about a personal transformation. They'll feel part of a team and learn new skills so they can get out there and reach for the stars.

    You have given to this project.

    You have already started changing the future for yourself and others in that one action. 

    YOU ROCK!

    I have the keys!

    It is really, really REAL! This morning I picked up the keys to the space that will soon be The Honest Food Kitchen thanks to you.

    I can't stress enough that crowdunding is "all or nothing", so to make The Honest Food Kitchen a reality, the target needs to be met by Sunday 22 June, 8pm (NZ time). Please share the campaign page with all your networks, and let them know that you have pledged.

    https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/2172

     

    I walked around the space, visualising what it will look like once The Honest Food Kitchen is built, once the target has been met.

    Imagine, an awesome team of mamas lovingly handcrafting your grain, dairy & sugar free protein bars through a paid internship programme. 

    This is MASSIVE. You are a part of this journey. Your support is mindblowing. I believe that what we are doing here is beyond life changing. A mighty goal, a well thought out plan, a desire to be of service while creating a profitable business that gives back. Profit with a purpose. 

    YOU ARE AMAZING. 

    Love

     

    What happened?

    30/05/2014 at 1:35 PM

    If you've been following The Honest Food Company lately, you'll know that early this week I launched a campaign on Pozible.

     

    The campaign started really well, picking up nearly $2000 before lunchtime. But then the site went down for 3 hours and things started to get a little weird.

     

    Our pledges grew much slower than expected and I got complaints from several backers saying that they couldn't pledge to the campaign due to a PayPal error.

     

    I got in touch with Pozible, and was unimpressed with their handling of these problems. Their solution was to ask you, our wonderful backers, to muck around with PayPal, delete all your bank details, and try again. This was not an acceptable "work around".

     

    So I've made the incredibly difficult decision to pull the Pozible campaign and move to PledgeMe.

     

    This is a risky move for me, but one I think I have to make. You need to have complete reassurance that this campaign is not taking you for a ride, and I don't feel that the way Pozible has handled this situation gives either of us that reassurance.

     

    So now I'm here, and your support is more important than ever. It's vital that I make the campaign goal. The rewards are still the same, as is the closing date.

     

    If you've come over from Pozible, I want you to know three things:

    1. You are amazing.
    2. Your credit card will only ever be charged ONCE, by PledgeMe, and only if I make my goal.
    3. By re-pledging here, you're going to get an extra-special little something because you really are incredible, and I want to apologise to you in the best way I know how.

     

    Going forward, this campaign is ONLY running on PledgeMe. If you want to share the link with your friends, please share this one. I am currently working on pulling down the Pozible site.

     

    I really am sorry about the mix-up and hassle. I'm hoping we can put this behind us and move on to make the Honest Food Kitchen a reality!

     

    Love & light

    Belinda xx
