It takes a village to build a company. I am who you see (usually), but I have my family and friends behind me. Literally.
This pic is from 3 years ago. We had just launched at farmers markets and were producing in our home kitchen. We were making bars in tiny batches, buying ingredients 5 lbs at a time, using our own kitchen tools to grind and mold. It would take us DAYS to make 1K bars... and the help of so many. My friends volunteered to apply stickers on pouches (now we print directly in custom pouches), my dad who visited from Colombia spent his entire summer putting bars inside tight small pouches (now larger pouches that are a relief!), my husband supported me in converting our formal living room into a storage area (and since then, make our home into what looks like a reception area for boxes/canvas totes/mail/samples... oh my!), and we produced day-and-night like a bunch of crazy people enlisting the help of my parents and parents in law, sister and brother in law, our nephew, my boys for stamping expiration dates, sealing pouches, hand cutting bars with a ruler and a knife (oh yeah, I think we were crazy).
What a ride. I look back and I have no idea how we did it. But we did. And we did it well and our customers loved our Ommie bars. So, here we are 3 years later with the same dream and the same passion, more committed than ever but a lot more efficient. Our home is still a mess, but our hearts are fuller and what started as MY dream is now OUR dream, and a common ground for my family to stick together and grow together. Can’t wait to see where the journey goes next.
Thank you all for supporting our journey! ❤️
