About the campaign
From Fresh Produce to Healthy, Great Tasting Food
At Britt's Live Culture Foods, we are committed to providing great tasting live-culture foods and to promoting the human health benefits that these foods have to offer. We use time-honored techniques, proprietary recipes and natural fermentation processes to ferment fresh vegetables and fruits in oak barrels. We believe in supporting our community so we use locally grown organic produce whenever possible. Our approach preserves the food while creating beneficial enzymes, B vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids and various strains of probiotic bacteria. For millennia, cultures around the world have been eating fermented foods and recent medical studies show that there is a link between eating probiotic rich foods and overall health.
Here's the Scoop
We know you love Britt's Live Culture Foods and it appears that word is getting out - the larger world is discovering our fermented foods as well. Folks are beating a path to our door to get healthy food that tastes great - a good problem for us to have!
While our live culture fermented foods protect all of our digestive systems and overall health, we need your help protecting our bodies which prepare and package these delicious foods for everyone to enjoy.
Britt's employees are working their fingers to the bone at our Pack House, hand-packing jars of fermented product and screwing each lid on by hand, for orders as large as 10,000 jars. To meet demand and provide delicious and healthy fermented foods to everyone who wants some, we need packing equipment and a conveyor belt. Our hands would forever thank you.
Packing equipment and a conveyor belt will relieve our hands, and a fork-lift and trailer would relieve our backs.Presently, we use a rented truck to haul 600-lb oak barrels of pickles, sauerkraut and kimchi from the "Hatchery" (our fermentation house) across the road to the "Pack House." With a forklift and a trailer, not only would our backs be relieved, but we would be more efficient in getting our product from us to you. Consistent with our sustainability policy, we have identified a line of used packaging equipment which satisfies our production needs and is compatible with our current facility.With the help of your loan, Britt's will be able to purchase this equipment. It's simple:Britt's Live Culture Foods keep you healthy and your financial support keeps us healthy.You get the return of your loan and assurance that Britt's Live Culture Foods are available to all.
