Learn Something New Every Day

There should be a word for a breakthrough that's also embarrassing... 8 months after launching, only today do I discover how to use a packing tape gun. And realise out just how much faster it makes delivery prep. What used to take 5-10 minutes per carton now takes 1-2 minutes.

And most important, the taste test check was a success 😋 Fitting way to end a action-packed debut year! See you on the other side... 💚 #newyearnewflavour

It was a big rush to make it before the Auspost shut on Friday, but now our salted-caramel sample shipments have been sent out. These samples are pre-production (PP for short), which are basically finished samples with exact formulation and packaging.We got these in advance so we could final quality check the finished packaging as well as have a small number of units (1 carton = 20 units) to send out to get sales kickstarted.This is the so called "presales" period for the next 2 weeks until the actual production units are in the warehouses and ready to start shipping...
