For a long time, I have felt the need for connection between like-minded people on a deeper level. I simply wished every individual could understand the pressing concerns that motivate the plant-based way forward, and that the word "vegan" or "plant-based" would not be used as the next fashion flash. I knew that talk of change was wonderful, but not enough. Veganism and all related sub categories had an uphill climb in product development and establishing themselves.
With small businesses suffering by the hand of the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak, those in plant-based markets had to hold on to their jobs with such force, because the only motivation that remained, was the love for their cause. Products disappeared from shelves and the already small selections were becoming hard to find. Many newcomers to the market simply had no chance. You have heard all the stories.. Everyone took to new opportunities to generate income, and realised again, the importance of nurturing this earth, ouselves, and those who will follow us.
Despite the challenges, we plant-based people are stubborn when it comes to our values! We persist! We undertand the strength of what drives us!
It bothered me enough that I researched for some time, the availability of products, and soon knew that we have a slim chance of breaking through the markets on our own, to be able to compete with global leaders in other industries, a necessary step to reduce our impact on the environment, the animals and many other issues. Vice Versa too. I watched as small plant-based businesses were forced to shut their doors. I watched as the community media platforms, filled up with products made from home.
The most asked question on plant-based groups: "Where can I find..." It is clear that the plant-based community needed this connectivity, the cry was loud but not heard. I felt for the animals which landed in shelters. I felt for the lady in the kitchen, who keeps going for her children. I felt for all of life itself.
I don't think it can ever be more clear than now, that the plant-based community needs to be able to shake hands in their own niche, in one online portal. In order to drive the global cause of plant-based people, we would need to make a significantly harder attempt at establishing ourselves in the marketplace. This will have a ripple effect into the agricultural and environmental arenas. This becomes a social demand, and this demand addresses directly, all the relevant global issues. Now we are moving in the right direction. We are able to buy and sell and render services in the right niche, in the right area. Plant-based products become accessable. Needs in the market are identified, the supplier becomes aware, the buyer gets "nooch" fresh!
That addressed one problem, we can trade, but can we offer technology that will also address the high cost for small business set-ups. This would be key to the success of the small start-up. I am so grateful to the developers and my husband, Colin Tandy, who works tirelessly for you. He picked up my dreams and is running with it. It is our utmost desire for you to succeed. It is our passion to support this earth, and all those who believe it is possible, like we do.
