I'd love to hear from you!

I ended up travelling to the copacker's factory by myself, so I had the double pressure of preparing for the meeting (knowing what I was talking about, ready on product and pricing discussions) as well as making sure I physically arrived...
First up early to get the bus to
First leg was getting to the border, then the 3.5 hour bus to Kaiping.
Once there had a great meeting including lot of updated prototype testing (excuse the messy pics!)
and then visit to the factory floor:
I've never been in such an automated factory before. Seeing all the chocolate being made was a real buzz, especially to think of all the Bite Society vegan goodies that might be made here if it works out...
All up, a fab visit and big milestone in the journey.
I went back to HK with lots of homework and follow up :)
