National Organic Week arrives in September and there’s no better time to turn to local Macedon Ranges growers for fresh fruit and vegetables.

The week runs from September 12-18 and is designed to increase awareness of the benefits of organic produce and farming, and to encourage wider adoption and consumption.

The owner of Wildwood Organics in Bolinda, Ben Dunn, has been running his one-acre certified organic vegetable garden for about a year and loves selling his produce to locals.

“I just feel better as a grower being able to sell my vegetables to people in my local community, who I see face to face every week at the farmers’ market,” Dunn said.

“When I sell vegetables to them, it makes me feel good to know that they bring home very good quality, fresh and healthy products.”

He said that right now, with the skyrocketing cost of non-organic fruit and vegetables, it was a great time to switch to local and market shopping, rather than big supermarkets and chains.

“Traditionally, certified organic fruits and vegetables were more expensive than conventionally grown vegetables, but for the first time in history, if you shop at your local farmers market or buy directly from a local farmer, Certified organic vegetables are cheaper,” he said.

National Organic Week is led by the Center for Organic Research and Education (CORE) and its president, Eric Love, believes that organic production systems will likely one day be the only way to sustainably feed the world.

“The benefit is that organic farming can be profitable and organic food appeals to consumers as both a healthy and ethical choice which also results in many climate actions and ecological benefits,” Mr. Love.

It took many cups of strong Chai and deep camaraderie for four Kolkata-based friends—Sonali Sonpal, Shilpa Soni, Jagruti Shah and Smita Agarwal—to brew a kombucha business in town. Once they left, there was no turning back.

In 2007, the four previously unknown women attended a women’s financial freedom workshop in Kolkata, where they quickly connected and remained lifelong friends, united by their responsibilities of running the home, children, family businesses, etc.

Fast forward 15 years, friends became entrepreneurs with Calbrew Kombucha, which infuses the fermented, slightly effervescent and sweetened black tea beverage commonly consumed for its purported health benefits.

Barely a year old, the brand is a favorite of several Kolkata cafes including Glenburn Café and Bunosilo Estate Coffee Roasters. Wellness expert Luke Coutinho featured Calbrew Kombucha on his health food website.

“The concept of Kombucha was relatively unknown to us until our friend Sonali told us about it. Her son, who was visiting from the United States, introduced it to his mother, who started making kombucha at home with different flavors,” says Jagruti in a conversation with His history.

While vacationing in Varanasi in 2020, Sonali broached the subject of starting a business together to make and sell kombuchas. Incidentally, all four women contributed in one way or another to their respective family businesses and, over time, had come to understand that it was important for them to carve out a place for themselves.

“In family businesses, what happens is that at the end of the day there is always a bit of male chauvinism. I understand that, because they have been working for ages, and they know the skills,” says Smita.

They started by experimenting with different flavors of kombucha, brewing it at Sonali, bottling it, and distributing it to friends and family.

Demand quickly picked up and the quartet was forced to seek rented premises to use as a manufacturing and bottling unit. They quickly named their business Calbrew Kombucha and registered the company in 2021.

Calbrew Kambucha founders vacation in Varanasi

Why Kombucha?

The history of kombucha dates back to 220 BC. when it is believed to have originated in northeast China and quickly became popular for its healing properties.

The growing popularity of superfoods in India has made kombucha a health ‘fad’, replacing sodas and other soft drinks. The fact that one can infuse multiple flavors to make it more appealing to a wider audience also helped.

As Calbrew Kombucha is determined to be organic, makers are particular about picking the best variety of loose leaf tea to get the basics right. “We use organic tea leaves as Oolong, Nilgiriswhite, green and black tea to make our Kombucha,” says Smita.

The four co-founders are working on the recipes after a lot of in-house research. The flavors – ranging from orange mint to peach, vanilla, etc. – are constantly tried and tested with new blends, infusions and seasonal flavors like lavender, which comes from Kashmir.

The company is awaiting certification to be organic. “That’s why we don’t use the word organic on our bottles, although we only use organic products,” says Smita.

Calbrew’s products are available on its website for pan-India shipping, and the founders soon plan to make them available on e-commerce websites including Amazon and Flipkart.

“Sorting cold chain storage and delivery was not easy, but now we have figured it out. Since our products do not contain any preservatives, they have a relatively shorter shelf life and we wanted to ensure that the delivery did not impair its quality,” says Smita.

Category extension and more

Besides Kombucha, the company now makes other fermented drinks like kefir, originally both a water and a milk-based drink.

A fermented and naturally carbonated water-based beverage rich in probiotics, kefir grains contain a healthy mix of beneficial bacteria and yeast. Calbrew’s kefir flavors range from blueberry and lychee lime to kokum and mojito mint.

Its most recent product, Coffucha – a blend of coffee and kombucha – is a cold brew fizzy coffee fermented for seven to ten days using the symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast.

Moving up the superfood category, Calbrew also makes a seasonal product called “kanji– made from fermented seasonal vegetables like beets and carrots and processed into ready-to-drink juice. As of now, this product is only available for sale in Kolkata due to its short shelf life.

At present, the company is in a start-up phase and the four founders are clear that they will not seek external funding, instead focusing on slow, steady, organic growth.

“If we wanted to, it would be so easy for us to scale this up in a big way by pasteurizing and gasifying the products. But that’s not why we’re here. We want to educate people about the health benefits of kombucha first and keep the USP of the product intact – it’s meant to give you good health and great taste,” says Jagruti.

Other Indian kombucha brands include HappyBooch, Atmosphere Studio, and Borecha.

friendships and partnerships

Ask any entrepreneur, and they’ll tell you that building a business is hard, but running it is even harder.

Does it make things easier if you have your friends on board in this journey called entrepreneurship?

Smita says, “For nearly 20 years, the four of us had been so involved in helping our husbands run their businesses that we were unaware of new ways of working, financial issues, etc. When it was time for us to look for something worthy to do, we wanted something where we would fit in easily and where we would be the boss. It’s not like we’re in our twenties, where we have all the time in life to settle down, grow, learn, unlearn, manage, and then thrive,” Smita says candidly.

She adds, “At our age, we all knew that forming a partnership isn’t easy, but if we did, it might work better with each other because we had been friends for so long.

There are many questions that eco-friendly families need to think about. Some think they can install solar panels, buy a hybrid and call it a day.

Unfortunately, there are other things you need to do if you want to live a sustainable lifestyle. You have to think about the foods you eat. We talked about the environmental benefits of a plant-based diet. However, there are other considerations as well. For example, you should try to eat organic foods if you want to reduce your carbon footprint and minimize environmental waste.

Parents of newborn babies should consider buying organic baby food. Organic baby food can be better for baby’s health and better for the planet.

Why Eco-Friendly, Health-Conscious Parents Buy Organic Formula

Breast milk is the best food for most children and should be stored for as long as possible. But it is not always possible for a mother to breastfeed her baby. It can be all kinds of diseases of a nursing woman, the treatment of which is incompatible with breastfeeding. There are situations when the milk disappears on its own, or for some individual beliefs or psychological reasons mothers are not at all keen to feed the baby with their milk. Also, sometimes the child needs a therapeutic mixture to solve a specific problem, in which case a special formula completely replaces or complements breastfeeding.

Organic formula milk has other benefits as well. As the Mayo Clinic points out, some parents buy it because it’s better for the environment. Of course, most people wouldn’t buy organic formula to help the environment if it wasn’t at least as healthy as other alternatives. Luckily, organic formula is both the eco-friendly and healthy option.

Choose formula milk

Before deciding which mixture to choose, you should consult your pediatrician, because he can tell you what you need to pay attention to mainly in each specific situation. In what mixture, the content and proportions of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, for example, if the child is underweight or underweight, he should be given more nutritious and easily digestible mixtures. The doctor will indicate certain components of the mixture if the baby tends to have food allergies.

You also need to make sure that it is truly organic and sustainable. You don’t want to buy an “organic” brand that’s guilty of greenwashing and not truly eco-friendly. Too many brands have been caught in the act of greenwashing for us to take at face value.

And of course, doctors advise choosing organic variants of baby milk mixtures. Since organic production is natural in everything. In other words, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or preservatives are not used in the cultivation of the products. To become a producer of organic products, it is necessary to pass a complicated and long certification procedure. Each stage of production is controlled by the competent authority. Only these products have the right to be marked with the word organic. Moreover, an organic brand is not only a quality natural product and good marketing, it is a philosophy that assumes an attentive attitude to the environment and the health of people.

Seeking benefits in artificial feeding

If you have to artificially feed a baby, don’t feel guilty. The child can grow healthy and develop on the formula. Let’s look at the positive aspects for mothers whose children are artificially fed:

  1. Baby mixes are easy to prepare and easy to use.
  2. You do not need to watch the child around the clock, because any of your households can feed him.
  3. The milk mixture is absorbed longer by the child’s body, which increases the time between feedings.
  4. Artificial feeding allows you to go to work if necessary
  5. Parents need to know exactly how much their child is eating at each feeding. When a child is breastfed, you cannot measure the amount of milk consumed, which affects the baby’s satiety. And feeding the mixture allows you to measure it accurately.
  6. These organic options are better for the environment

Organic products: harm or advantage?

What organic products are, even today not all consumers understand, and their influence on the body is legendary. Some see organic as just another fad; others are confident in the benefits of these products.

Organic production is modern, high-tech production, carefully designed processes that do not harm nature or humans, and careful animal care. It is a radically different approach from that of ordinary farms, the animals are kept unhindered in the modern breeding complex, fed with a balanced natural feed from their production, so that they can be called happy.

Thus, an organic product does not grow pesticides, synthetic mineral fertilizers or genetically modified organisms. In breeding, do not use hormones, growth stimulants or drugs. In other words, we see a lot of advantages in favor of organic products. And if the baby mix is ​​made up of organic products, that’s a huge plus for the health bank. It’s also better for the environment, as they don’t use pesticides or other practices that harm the planet.

Benefits of organic formula milk

A highly suitable organic baby milk mix is ​​made in Europe – a milk mix that provides your child with all the nutrients necessary for their harmonious physical and mental development. Therefore, they tend to be ideal for people who care about their baby’s health and want to be eco-friendly parents. This mixture is designed to feed healthy children from birth in cases where breastfeeding is not possible. Its main advantages:

  • the product is made of high quality organic raw materials produced by specially approved suppliers, without the use of environmentally friendly and healthy genetically modified ingredients, preservatives, colorings and flavoring agents
  • has a protein complex optimized in quantity and quality, providing energy to the baby and responsible for the cognitive functions of the brain;
  • the probiotics and prebiotics in the blend help boost your baby’s immunity DHA and ARA – are the two special fatty acids found in breast milk that play an important role in immune system formation and help in brain development and vision.

Organic infant formulas are ideal for artificial and mixed feeding. European baby food brands occupy a fairly large position in the baby food market.

What to consider when choosing a mixture

There is a certain list of features that young parents should pay attention to when choosing a formula for your baby:

  1. Child’s age. Mixtures for newborns and toddlers 6.12.18 months differ in their composition, as well as breast milk changes its qualitative and quantitative indicators during the maturation of the baby. The age range of the manufacturer is always indicated on the packaging.
  2. State of the immune system. For children with weakened immunity, mixtures with prebiotics and probiotics have been created.
  3. Presence of anemia. In such cases, the high iron formula should be chosen.
  4. Subject to colic. For frequent abdominal pain, a mixture of sour milk will work, normalizing bowel function.
  5. Allergy. Individual intolerance to the product or its components is possible. Its elimination allows the use of hypoallergenic mixtures.

In general, it is necessary to choose baby food together with a pediatrician, who will assess the health of the child and give certain advice. If the baby when using the mixture feels normal, steadily gains weight, sleeps quietly and is not bothered by colic, then you have made the right choice. But it should be remembered that each child is an individual. And what suits a friend’s son may not necessarily suit your child.

Organic baby formulas are great for the environment and your baby’s health

There can be a number of reasons why you cannot breastfeed. Fortunately, there are organic formulas that are ideal for baby’s health and the environment. Environmentally conscious parents should consider buying them.

Celiac disease, an autoimmune reaction to gluten, affects around 1% of the population, but an additional 6% are estimated to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), a less severe adverse reaction to gluten. Since gluten reactions can be so non-specific — they can trigger everything from gut issues to migraines — it’s likely that many more people have undiagnosed issues.

A gluten-free diet is a diet that completely eliminates the proteins found in wheat, barley, rye, triticale, and contaminated oats. While there are more obvious sources, like breads and cereals, gluten is often lurking in packaged and processed foods as well. (For example, soy sauce is an unlikely culprit). For this reason, transitioning to a gluten-free diet can be daunting.

As such, health care providers globally do not recommend that all individuals limit gluten, according to Jessica DeLuise, MHS, PA-C, CCMS. However, if you have an allergy, sensitivity, or autoimmune disease, following a gluten-free diet is key to managing your symptoms and feeling your best.

“The benefits of doing so would be less gastrointestinal distress, avoiding micronutrient deficiencies and damage to the intestinal lining, among other negative consequences of celiac disease, and less risk of allergic reaction and possible complications,” says -she.

CHICO – All The Bitter’s story is a blessing.

In January 2022, Ian Blessing and his wife, Carly Blessing, launched a brand of non-alcoholic bitters called All The Bitter, which is now sold across the United States and exported to three countries, with three more to follow, according to a press release.

All The Bitter produces and distributes a line of award-winning non-alcoholic bitter cocktails that can support digestion and liver health while adding complex flavors to cocktails, mocktails, sparkling water and other beverages, according to the release.

The Blessings worked at the French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley, where they met and worked as sommeliers.

“It’s an amazing, amazing restaurant,” said Ian Blessing. “You spend $1000 on a meal, but that’s the thing to do when visiting Napa.”

Ian Blessing started working at French Laundry in 2016 and Carly Blessing in 2015. They started as food runners and worked their way up to sommeliers. After several years of working at the restaurant, the Blessings loved their job but decided that having children and working until 2 a.m. was not easy.

Carly Blessing left her job at French Laundry in May 2019 after giving birth to the couple’s first child, Jack Blessing, who is now three years old. They have another son, Miles Blessing, who is one and a half years old. Ian Blessing left the restaurant in October 2018 and started working at Bouchon, a French Laundry partner restaurant, in October 2018. Although for years their life centered around alcohol, the Blessings decided he was time to get sober.

“After having our first child, it became clear that drinking and raising a baby didn’t go together,” said Ian Blessing. “Kids don’t care if you’re hungover. They’re going to wake up at 2 a.m. anyway.

Inspired by the flavor profiles of the classic bitters found behind each bar, the brand’s three varietals, Aromatic, Orange and New Orleans, are packed with organic and functional botanicals like dandelion root, holy basil, lemon balm and milk thistle seeds. Non-alcoholic alternatives to beer, wine and spirits were growing rapidly. The category is expected to grow 34% from 2020 to 2024, according to the release.

The company has received an incredible response from consumers, critics and the media, including articles in the San Francisco Chronicle, Good Morning America and Forbes, as well as silver and gold awards from spirits competitions renowned, according to the press release.

Excited to combine their beverage and flavor expertise with a new market focused on inclusion
and conscious consumption, Carly and Ian Blessing are grateful to have found early success as a baby mum and-
pop enterprise. Handcrafted in small batches in the Meriam Park Alley kitchen, the new company has
has already won six medals in prestigious spirits competitions such as the San Francisco World Spirits
Competition and the Los Angeles Spirit Awards, according to the release.

Ian Blessing is originally from the Los Angeles area and Carly Blessing grew up in Durham. Ian Blessing went to Chico State in 2003. During the COVID-19 pandemic, after everything was shut down, the Blessings found their way back to the Chico area, where Carly’s family still lives.

Carly attended wine school in Boston and worked in bars and restaurants there. Ian was on the same track while working in California. He said he wanted to learn more about wine and was interested in beer, spirits and service. He started to read and learn as much as he could. Both blessings are certified by the court of master sommeliers.

“The wine program at French Laundry is amazing,” said Ian. “You learn firsthand how to serve these wines. I have studied and obtained a number of certifications and passed an exam to be an expert in my field.

After returning to Chico, the Blessings had to decide what to do next, as they no longer wanted to work in restaurants. As they had just quit drinking, they were excited to discover the burgeoning world of non-alcoholic alternatives, such as spirits, imitation whisky, gin and tequila.

“It’s like having decaffeinated coffee or veggie burgers,” said Ian Blessing. “You can enjoy rituals and flavors without consuming alcohol. We got really interested as consumers and made soft drinks at home. Bitters were important to use and we decided to make one ourselves.

Ian said it can be difficult to quit drinking alcohol, and coming from his experience with wine, beer, spirits and cocktails, it was an important part of his personal and professional life. He studied drinks around the clock. After quitting drinking, the Blessings were happy to discover that alternatives existed and could enjoy the rituals and flavors they loved so much.

Ian Blessing got the idea for the business while looking at an empty liquor bottle. He wondered if he could make any cocktail in the world without alcohol and tie it all together with bitters.

The Blessings do all the mixing and lapping in their commercial kitchen. They also do all the marketing, bottling, stickering and other tasks associated with starting a business.

“You start with vegetable glycerin and apple cider vinegar and organic raw botanicals such as spices, fruits and flowers and let them steep in liquid for two months. Glycerin works well with extraction and shelf stability. We macerate ingredients, which means letting something sit in a liquid for a period of time that extracts flavors. It’s like making tea in the sun without the sun,” he said.

Ian Blessing came up with the company name after hearing a guest say “so much the better” on a podcast and the brainchild of All the Bitter was born.

The price for a four-ounce bottle of bitters is $26.50 and there’s a three-pack for $33. Drinks have many health benefits.

“The ingredients are beneficial and help support digestion,” said Ian Blessing. “They are packed with beneficial herbs such as dandelion and milk thistle, which are great for digestive and gut health. Milk thistle is purifying. Bitters are enjoyable but also have functional benefits.

Ian said you can mix a few dashes of bitters into sparkling water, which also has digestive benefits and helps with hangovers.

Bitters are not yet available in bars or restaurants in Chico. Blessings are focused on domestic and international markets. They’re talking at a cafe in Redding but so far there’s only talk.

The next step for the company is to expand.

“We want to evolve and grow and see what it looks like,” said Ian Blessing. “We don’t have as much time as we would like to spend in the kitchen. We want to find a larger facility and continue to manufacture the product ourselves.

The Blessings are testing a handful of new recipes, including a small batch of Lavender Chamomile. They also want to make canned bitters and sodas.

The Blessings don’t have any employees yet, so they do all the work themselves, although they do have contractors and graphic designers working with them, but they do 90% of the work themselves.

The product is available in Canada in bars and restaurants and in Iceland and the Blessings are in talks with establishments in Saudi Arabia. They also want to sell in Dubai, UK and India.

“The response has been incredible,” said Ian Blessing. “When we started the business, friends and family were asking, ‘Do you sell a farmers market?’ and we have to say ‘We are in communication with Saudi Arabia.’ The market has grown.

The business typically produces around 10 orders a day, but could be 10-20. Ian Blessing said he and Carly Blessing are learning a lot and learning as they go.

Blessings contribute about three percent of their total sales to charities. They work with a company called 1% for the Planet, which supports the environment. They also donate 2% of their sales to charities or drug and alcohol addiction organizations that help recover from drug and alcohol addiction.

“I wanted my business to have an impact and give back to the community,” said Ian Blessing. “I’m happy with that and that’s really what keeps us going. People love the product and we help people too.

Twrl Milk Tea was inspired by a love of boba tea, Asian heritage, innovation and sustainability. These organic milk teas are made with Fair Trade brewed tea from biodiverse family farms in China and Japan. These drinks contain 45-50 calories and 6-7 grams of sugar per serving and come in three flavors: Hojicha Roasted Green Tea, Supreme Jasmine Pu’erh Tea, and Original Black Milk Tea. Plus, this shelf-stable drink is nitro-infused, gluten-free, and made with non-GMO pea milk.

Not only was this (relative) innovative newcomer a finalist in the Best New Beverage category of the Natural Products Expo West 2022 NEXTY Awards, but the brand was also recently named a Grand Prix and winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2022 Naturally Bay Area Pitch. Click. As part of the prize, Twrl Milk Tea won a free booth at the upcoming 2022 Natural Products Expo East, $5,000 in cash from Aspect Consumer Partners, a market research report worth $10,000 from SPINS and a personalized suite of professional services.

Additionally, Twrl will join nine other emerging natural product brands – representing first and second place winners from five regional Naturally Network pitch slam events (Austin, Boulder, San Diego, Chicago, Bay Area) – for the Natural Products Expo. East 2022 Pitch Slam Competition, to be held September 28 in Philadelphia.

We spoke with Twrl CEO Pauline Ang to learn more about how she and co-founder and CMO Olivia Chen prepared for the Pitch Slam experience, and what they’re looking forward to at Expo. East.

How has winning the Naturally Bay Area Pitch Slam impacted your business?

Pauline Ang: Getting our name out there and being recognized was a perfect moment. This introduction has opened many doors for us. It was one of the most valuable things that happened because now we are starting to look for investors and a lot of them have come to us directly. It takes a lot of capital to build a beverage business. To be able to have a stand [at Expo East] is huge because we didn’t plan to go there because we couldn’t afford it as a small business. But now we are. I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to be able to expand our business across California.

How did you prepare for the competition?

PENNSYLVANIA: We were assigned an amazing mentor through the Naturally Bay Area network who helped us tremendously in refining our pitch deck. She gave us a very different and important perspective and I really have to thank her for helping us win. Other than that, it was just a lot of practice. I recorded and timed myself over and over until I was able to give the pitch in full in the allotted time. I [also] made notes on areas needing more clarity or emphasis. Looking at each other isn’t the easiest thing to do, but I think that’s what helped me figure out exactly what I needed to work on to refine my speech.

What was the inspiration for Twrl Milk Tea?

PENNSYLVANIA: As adults, we longed for the childhood drink our parents made for us. We were milk tea fanatics, but we couldn’t have it every day because of the high calories and [amount of] sugar. We wanted something to fill that void. Tea rooms being closed during the pandemic, we decided to test it in our kitchen. We’ve tried over 20 types of plant milks to make sure [the result] would pass our taste buds. I will not market a product that I do not drink every day.

Does your tea have any added benefits?

PENNSYLVANIA: Teas are generally rich in antioxidants and L-theanine. But pu-erh tea goes even further since it is a fermented tea that [supports] gut health and digestion. It is good to drink it after a meal. It also contains the highest number of antioxidants of any tea. Our teas contain L-theanine, which is ideal in the late afternoon or early morning for calm, clean energy without the crash.

How is your tea grown?

PENNSYLVANIA: One of our teas is grown on a misty mountain slope using natural spring water. It’s almost wild. It’s not on some giant commercial tea farm – it’s grown where it was supposed to be grown. [where it develops] lots of flavor and antioxidants. Organic tea tastes so much better and has a much richer flavor than non-organic commercial teas.

How does your tea have a positive and lasting impact?

PENNSYLVANIA: We ensure that our teas are grown on an organic and fair trade family farm [by people] who truly care about the land they [cultivate]. We worked to find something that tasted great, but was also durable. We use aluminum cans instead of plastic, so the product is fully recyclable and has less impact on the environment once used.

Are there any trends you would like to see at Expo East?

PENNSYLVANIA: I’m always interested in plant-based innovation – any type of plant-based meat and new plant-based milks and also what might be an even better option than pea milk. I’m always on the lookout for new trending flavors on the market. I’m also really looking for something that can be recycled, that’s the next step.
