Year in review for 2023:
As costs continued to rise, last year was a challenging year for all food and drink businesses.
We do have some positive highlights which we would like to share though and we hope 2024 will be an easier one for all.
In Jan we were interviewed by Brenda McCormack for Food & Wine magazine in the Sunday Business post. Heres the link for anyone interested:
In May we teamed up with Dr John Kenny from Teagasc Moorepark, Cork. John is working with us on an exciting European funded research programme called REACH. The ambition is to take a food waste stream and produce gut friendly fermented products by identifying suitable bacteria.
June saw us attend one of our favourite shows of the year, Bloom in Phoenix park. It’s always a great event where we get to meet so many visitors and sample our products.
In the Summer we upgraded our production capabilities by commissioning our new can seaming machine. It allows us to fill and seam cans at a much faster rate than previously. Our process still remains the same all the way through, whereby we let the drinks fizz by themselves up over a 14-day period using the live water kefir cultures.
We also saw ourselves Shortlisted for the Blas na HEireann awards in Dingle in October.
In November we were delighted to win Gold and Silver at the Free from Awards for our Cucumber mint & thyme and Chilli & ginger respectively. It meant a lot to see our drinks getting recognised for their very low calories (less than 7 kcal per drink) with no added sugars and also been vegan and gluten free.
And don’t forget to check out next year’s Samhain festival held in Kell’s, Co Meath and organised by Flavours of Boyne Valley. We attended it in Nov last year and had a ball. The workshop locations are amazing which include an old renovated church in the town. The Workshops were small and intimate and held by Some of the leading chefs in Ireland.
In Dec we got some great press in The Irish Independent Gift guide by Katy Mc Guinness and by Alison Curtis on her TodayFM show. We also were in The Irish Examiner’s sustainable Christmas guide by Caroline Hennessy.
The support and recognition from the Irish press is very much appreciated and helps us drive our small business forward.
So those were some of our highlights from 2023 and we hope to meet up with some of you along our journey in 2024 .
