Reasons to Invest

Yae! Organics boasts over $500K in lifetime sales, with a 225% growth from 2019 to 2020 alone.
The healthy eating, snack bar, nutrition sector is projected to reach $722.49 billion by 2027 and the global nutraceutical market was valued at $382.51 billion in 2019, with an expected growth of 8.3% CAGR.
Our products have been distributed by Walmart Marketplace, Burlington, and Grocery Outlet.

Fuss Free Juicing

We are completely redefining the concept of fast food, one step at a time. 


Fast food traditionally implies unhealthy, unnatural, and processed foods. We’ve changed that criteria to include healthy, all-natural, nutrient-dense foods which can be grabbed on the go. 


At Yae! Organics, we believe in using natural foods such as fruits and vegetables as the basis for good health.

Most People Don’t Have Time to Juice

Busy schedules and on-the-go lifestyles make it difficult for people to eat healthily. In fact, nine out of ten Americans fail to meet recommended doses of fruit and vegetables. And 19 million Americans live in food deserts (source).

Source 

Furthermore, with new dietary fads and supposed “superfoods” appearing every day, we believe finding high-quality nutritional products can be a challenge. We strive to change that and be the trusted source of healthy nutrients.

Save Time. Save Money. Reduce Waste

We’ve developed organic juice powders and snacks as a simple, convenient, solution for nutrition on the go. 


On top of that - we’re investing in hi-tech solutions for fast delivery to food deserts, where fresh fruits and vegetables aren’t as accessible.

Beginning a health journey is easy, sticking to it is hard. We are developing an app that'll allow consumers to clearly define, track and commit to their health goals, all while collaborating with friends and family. Additionally, the app allows us to identify consumers living in food deserts, in order to provide healthy, all-natural plant-based options to those with limited access to fresh and nutritious foods.

*The above is a prototype of a future app. The app is still currently under development.

Taking space in a booming industry

The global nutraceutical market (source) size is projected to reach USD 722.49 billion by 2027 (source) - meaning a lot of people are craving healthy, nutritious food.

Source

On top of that - 19 million Americans live in food deserts, and so do 60% of our customers. Our top markets span across those spaces like New York, Georgia, California, Detroit, and Tennessee (source).

The global snacks market size was also valued at USD 439.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2019 to 2025.

We’ve Been Dedicated

To date, we’ve generated over $500,000 in revenue, sold over 15,000 products, and had our merchandise sold in Walmart Marketplace, Burlington, and Grocery Outlet.


We’ve been manufacturing many of our products.

Not to mention, we’ve also developed unique Superfood Energy Snack Bars, as we pivot into the $20 Billion Healthy Snack Market.

*The above image contains products that are not currently on the market and not available for general consumption.

Flavors include delicious options such as OG Caramel Cake, Choco-Cinnamon Fudge Brownie, Lemon Cherry Drip Cake, and Irie Caribbean Coconut Cake. Our bars are packed with health benefits with nutrient-dense ingredients and superfoods to support your body’s most important functions, ranging from digestion to immune health to balanced blood sugar and more. The bars are developed and market-ready. We're expecting to make them available during the 4th Quarter.

We Make Healthy Easy

We are a company dedicated to making healthy juicing easy and accessible - without any compromises on quality.


Our products are derived from high-quality fruits and vegetables - which are juiced and then dried into powders. 


During the drying process the natural enzymes, minerals, vitamins, proteins, and nutrients, of the fresh juice, are preserved. Once the powders are rehydrated, the powders convert back into fresh juice


We’ve also infused our snack bars with those same superfood powders - providing healthy servings of fruits and vegetables while snacking.

Business with Purpose

Here’s how we make money:


  1. We source and manufacture high-quality juice powders and snacks. 

  2. We then deliver our packaged goods primarily to digital consumers.

  3. We acquire customers using a combination of targeted digital advertising, metrics, and Influencer partnerships.

Not to mention, When you purchase a Yae! Organic product  - you’re ultimately contributing to the alleviation of poverty around the world. 


That’s because we’re allocating a percentage of our sales to empower minority underprivileged youth. Our Yae! Business with Purpose Initiative supports foundations with funding for enhanced nutrition, agriculture, education, literacy, leadership, entrepreneurship, and self-confidence programs.


We’re committed to our role in the ecosystem that changes the world.

Making Healthy, Affordable, Global Impact

There are companies that make juice powders, and snacks, but they also use fillers and compromise on quality. 


Most of our competitors are inorganic and have adopted a mandatory subscription-based business model- which can make their products 200% more expensive. 


We offer functional, unique blends, at competitive prices - on a mission to help global food accessibility while we're at it.

A Bright Future

In five years, we see ourselves aligned with our mission to make healthy juicing and nutrition convenient without compromising quality. 


We anticipate our business will be vertically integrated - incorporating food science and technology for more sustainable production.


This includes:

  • Building vertical farms-using AI operated machinery, and manufacturing facilities in urban communities- creating not just jobs but thousands of careers. 

  • Diversifying our product line ranging from plant-based supplements, snacks, cereals, beverages, ice creams, and even plant-based meat alternatives.

  • Targeting Food Desert Markets in New Orleans, Chicago, Tennessee, Atlanta, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Detroit, New York, and Camden NJ.

  • Developing and launching our Yae! Everyday App 

  • Leading as a global brand with millions of loyal customers around the world. 

Ultimately, Yae! will be a community. When the average consumer thinks of high quality fruits and vegetables in a convenient form - they’ll think of us. 

Health and nourishment brought by an experienced, passionate team

At Yae! Organics, we have brought together a diverse group of industry veterans. We have diverse backgrounds and experience farming, managing multi-billion dollar budgets, working with powerhouse beauty companies, and managing research teams of PhDs.  Together, we built a company around 5 key elements: Customer Obsession, Research & Development, Brand Awareness, Distribution, and Cash Flow.

Our founder Lorenzo Holley has a passion for farming, nutrition, and product development. He’s spent the last 5 years studying the formulation process and is enthusiastic about product innovation. 


Dr. Sany Seifi (Sr. Formulator) compliments his passion with her knowledge of Natural Medicine and R&D. Anita Tejani (Nutrition Science Consultant) assures our products are functional, and Rick Collett (Production Compliance & Quality Assurance Advisor) assures we’re following regulatory guidelines


As a CPG company, we’re constantly sourcing materials, Mike Franco (Supply Chain Manager) is an expert at that. It’s not enough to just have high-quality products in a competitive space, we need to be sure our products resonate with our target consumers.


Our business is primarily direct to consumers. Nick Ernst (Ads Manager) manages our digital marketing team (5 managers) monitoring KPIs. 


Bennett Johnson and Sunny Patel (Financial Advisors) are consistently monitoring our financials, offering strategies to increase profits.

Building a Healthier World

As simple as this concept sounds, only 1 in 10 Americans are currently eating enough fruits and vegetables, according to the CDC (source).


That’s over 295 million Americans that are lacking when it comes to setting the foundation for good dietary health (source). 


By merging natural foods with scientific research and technology - we believe we can help resolve this problem.


By substituting unhealthy fast foods for Yae! Organics health-focused products, we can contribute to a healthier population and reduced rates of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and other chronic illnesses. 


Over time, these simple food swaps can have an immense impact and even contribute to saving lives. Come join us on our mission.

Why Invest In Nutraceuticals?

1 day ago

ARE YOU STILL ON THE FENCE ABOUT INVESTING? IF SO, HERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW. 

What are nutraceuticals?

Nutraceuticals are products derived from plant  sources that provide both nutrition and medicinal benefits. These products include dietary supplements, herbal products, and vitamins. They contain a high concentration of bioactive compounds, derived from plant  sources and have physiological benefits and can aid in the prevention and treatment of disease.

Benefits of nutraceutical investing

Consumers have become more health conscious. It’s this increase in health consciousness—as well as an interest in alternative medicines—that has, in part, driven nutraceutical growth. The global nutraceutical market  size is projected to reach USD 722.49 billion by 2027 - meaning a lot of people are craving healthy, nutritious food. 

Another point in this industry’s favor is Nutraceuticals may not be as stringently regulated as pharmaceutical drugs or medical devices—which means they can get to market quicker. In the United States, for example, it is the manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure a nutraceutical is safe. Companies like Yae! Organics do not  have to obtain FDA approval before putting our products on shelves, unless it contains a brand new food additive.

Big Food companies are buying  smaller brands

Some of the deals are staggering to contemplate — $600 million for a protein bar company started four years ago in a west suburban basement, $250 million for a popcorn brand launched in a Minnesota couple's garage, and $700 million for an organic broth maker acquired by the world's largest soup company. Times are tough in the packaged food industry as shoppers — millennials in particular — continue to reach for products they consider to be healthy, natural or better quality than some older brands. Faced with declining sales, large food companies are forking over fat cash for upstart brands in hopes of growing once more, while also reformulating outdated brands to be more modern.

Why Invest in Yae! Organics? 

Not eating enough fruits and veggies is a huge problem. It puts consumers at higher risk for diabetes, heart disease, nutritional deficiencies, and even certain cancers. Our solution is to make getting the recommended dosages of fruits and vegetables convenient, without compromising quality. We believe there's a huge opportunity to disrupt the industry with plant based powders and snacks in the short term. Additionally, in the long term, we see ourselves offering beverages, creamers, cereals, soups, plant based meats, and even pet foods. However, for now we're focused on growing our customers with powders and snacks. Food and Beverage is an industry we just can't live without. The world's population is projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050. 

Thanks in advance for adding Yae! Organics to your investment portfolio. This is the last opportunity to own stock in Yae! Organics @1.24 per share, minimum $250. We're currently 13% Funded. We look forward to reaching our maximum goal and continuing on a positive growth trajectory. 


46.4% Returning Customers!

4 days ago

Customer retention refers to the percentage of returning customers. Retention is a key metric for the growth of our brand.  Our ability to retain existing customers is fundamental to our short-term and long-term success. Here are a few reasons why:

  • It is often much cheaper to retain existing customers than acquire new ones. Sales and marketing acquisition costs usually greatly outweigh costs related to customer service and ongoing customer satisfaction.
  • Loyal customers tend to be repeat customers, meaning they’re valuable. Increasing customer retention, increases the chance that a customer will become a loyal, repeat customer and can massively increase profits.
  • It is more effective for us to upsell or cross sell to our customers as they already have a relationship built on trust and product satisfaction.
  • Happy customers can often lead to gaining new customers through referrals.

Our business is unique compared to other industries because starting on your health journey is easy, yet sticking to it is hard. We're communicating with our customers to encourage them to stay consistent. We're also developing our Yae! Everyday App which simplifies  the health journey with Artificial Intelligent technology.    

We're excited to be moving in the right direction. Improving our customer retention has been one of our top milestones. Our next goal is to increase retention by an additional 20%. As an investor we’ll keep you posted on our progress every step of the way. Thanks for believing in our vision.

7 days ago

There's over 8 million consumers and 15,000 distribution locations. New York is a major hub of distributors, supermarkets, delis, coffee shops, kosher markets, and bodegas. Our field reps will be responsible for establishing our brand at these locations. Also we look forward to launching pop up shops here. Our pop up shops will give consumers the opportunity to meet our staff and try exclusive products, unavailable anywhere else. We're excited to establish our presence." -CEO, Lorenzo Holley

We believe a Series A round will offer an opportunity for you to exit with a return on your investment. Growing your investment is a process that starts with market leadership. Market Leadership can translate into higher revenue, higher profitability, and greater share value. 


Thanks for believing in our vision. We'll do whatever it takes to continue our growth trajectory.

Closing In on $400,000 Annual Revenue

9 days ago

Congratulations to all our investors. We’re happy to announce this has been our highest grossing year thus far. We believe we’ve established our product’s viability and scalability. Thanks for believing in our vision. There’s still a lot of work to be done but we’re elated to be ending the year on a high note. 

We’re honored to be apart of your portfolio. Together we look forward to making the world a healthier place one juice powder and snack at a time. The holiday season is our busiest time of year. Our team will be working through the holidays to satisfy our customers and ultimately our investors. Happy Holidays from our families to yours! 

We've Already Surpassed Our Revenue Projection For 2021!

19 days ago

Yae! Organics has surpassed our revenue projection, with $311,000 in Total Income, yielding a 41% revenue growth compared to last year. We attribute our success to a 90% increase in our marketing and advertising spend and our expansion into the Canadian Functional Foods Market.  Our net operating income is 26.22%. We believe we have a window of opportunity to drive revenues, and profits, further during this holiday season.

 Competitive Edge

 The competitive landscape has continued to evolve at a rapid pace. Most of our competitors have allocated substantial resources to building awareness, traffic, and sales. Many are averaging $20-$800M in annual revenue.  Our goal is to move quickly on establishing our competitive edge which includes Packaging design adjustments that better represent the quality of our products, implementing aggressive offers, expanding our affiliate programs, investing in customer retention, and establishing more retail relationships. We see substantial growth opportunity in the large markets we’re targeting.

 What’s Next? 

 We’re projecting $4M in revenue, and a $40M valuation by the end of 2022. Market leadership requires serious investment and marketing execution against established brands. The capital raised thus far, on Start Engine ($67,326), has fueled our 41% growth compared to last year. Our goal is to increase our marketing and advertising spend an additional 400%. We believe by reaching our maximum goal of $535,000 we’ll be in the position to grow 10-15x next year.

 Focusing on the Long Term 

 We believe that the long-term value we create for our shareholders will be a key indicator of our success. Our economic model will be more powerful if we can establish market leadership. Market leadership can translate into increased revenue, profitability, capital velocity, and, as a result, higher returns for our investors.

Working with Available Resources

 Yae! Organics started with $1000 so we’re experienced with making something out of nothing. We believe Yae! Organics will continue to grow as financial resources become available to us. Investing doesn’t come without risk. However, we believe by analyzing data, and investing in what’s currently working, we decrease the level of risk substantially over time.  

 We’re 12% Funded. Become a part of the reason we establish market leadership.

Yae! Organics And The Metaverse

about 1 month ago

Looks like we're ahead of time and aligned with the future! 

Facebook's new corporate name is Meta Platforms Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced last week. Meta focuses on building the next generation of online interaction, known as the "metaverse"

How Does Yae! Organics Tie Into The Metaverse? 

The metaverse is a fully immersive online realm that looks similar to the real world but is computer generated. It allows people to flip back and forth between the physical and virtual world through VR headsets, via custom rooms in which real people can interact with lifelike holograms. 

There's no doubt about it. In the future people will be spending the majority of their time in virtual reality. This means consumers will want to spend less time juicing, traveling, cooking, or even going to supermarkets. Our powders, and snacks, can be essential  for a virtual lifestyle.  They're also shelf stable which makes it convenient to stock up for long periods of time. We're also in the early stages of developing our virtual store. We envision our virtual store to be a place where consumers can shop our diverse product lines, and meet our staff for an interactive experience. 

Thank You for Investing Today. It's The Foundation For What We're Doing In The Future.

We're Approved to Bid on over $7 Billion Federal Contracts

about 1 month ago

We’re so excited to announce we’ve just been approved by the United States Government to bid on Department of Defense Contracts. About a year ago we noticed a substantial number of online orders going to military addresses. We did our due diligence and discovered, there’s a high demand for healthy juice powders and snacks amongst deployed soldiers.

 What does the Approval Mean? 

 Currently the United States Department of Defense provides Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) for deployed soldiers. The MRE is a self-contained, individual field ration in lightweight packaging bought by the United States Department of Defense for its service members for use in combat or other field conditions where organized food facilities are not available. These packages may include

Entrée: the main course, such as spaghetti or Beef Stew, 

Side Dish: rice, corn, fruit, or mashed potatoes etc,  

Cracker or Bread

Spread: Peanut Butter, jelly, or Cheese, 

Dessert: Cookies or Pound 

Candy: M&M’s Skittles, or Tootsie Rolls 

Beverages: Gatorade like drink mixes, Cocoa, Dairy Shakes, Coffee, Tea

Accessories: Spoon, Matches, Creamers, Sugar, Salt, Chewing Gum, Toilet Paper

 This approval means Yae! Organics can now bid on contracts to include our products, which are healthier alternatives, in MRE packages.

 Our Competitive Advantage

Yae! Organics recently received our Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification. Federal law mandates that the government allocate 23 percent of its contracting work to small businesses. Of this portion, 5 percent is meant for minority owned businesses. In fiscal year 2020, the federal government spent more than $665 billion on contracts, an increase of over $70 billion from fiscal year 2019. $7.6 Billion was awarded to MBE’s. 

 Become apart of the reason we accommodate the government’s needs. Now's a Great Time to Be An Investor In Yae! Organics. 

We're Officially MBE Certified!

about 1 month ago

Congratulations to all our investors. We're Officially MBE Certified!

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? 

Many Fortune 1000 companies in America have supplier diversity programs in place. These programs are specifically designed for large companies to source products and services from minority owned businesses. They do this in an effort to keep their businesses in line with the shifting demographic profile of our country. These companies recognize that a diverse supply base offers a competitive advantage in today’s multicultural business economy.

In other words, large corporations are constantly looking for minority owned businesses to work with. They have supplier diversity programs in place to calculate exactly how successful they are in sourcing products and services from minority suppliers. Therefore one of the top benefits of MBE certification is that any contractual agreement between a corporation and Certified MBE is counted towards that corporation’s supplier diversity goal. The more they spend with Certified MBEs, the closer they get to achieving and surpassing their goal. But you have to be a Certified MBE in order to count towards corporate diversity spending.

Meet Victor Our Very First Investor

about 1 month ago

Victor Yako Was Our First Investor.  Here’s Why He Invested Early.

“From the beginning Yae! Organics just sounded like a great idea. I fell in love with the wheatgrass powder and, to this day, I drink at least one serving a day. Lorenzo was an avid juicer himself and I felt his timing was good, because I noticed more people were becoming health conscious. At that time, he was doing well at the farmer’s markets and planning to expand. We talked about his vision, and I saw huge upside sales potential online and with major retailers. His vision, determination, and drive made it easy to see this is going to grow into something big. I believe Yae! Organics will influence the way people view a healthy lifestyle in the future. Lorenzo is a pioneer! "

Victor started as a silent partner and recently joined our team as VP of Sales. If you’re an investor that has a skill set, that’ll complement our team, please send us an email investors@yaeorganics.com. We'll always respond inside of 24 hours. We’d love to talk with you.

New Investment Minimum $250

about 2 months ago

Thank you for your feedback from our last update. We truly appreciate your kind words of encouragement, and your constructive criticism. We realized our minimum investment was a bit higher than other companies. Based on your feedback we've decided to lower the minimum investment to $250. 

We've grown tremendously! 

Yae! Organics started with just $1000. Our founder packaged wheatgrass powder by hand in his kitchen, and sold it at a local farmer's market. Today we have manufacturing equipment for efficient production, offer 18 products, over $500,000 in sales, receive great reviews, and we're available in over 200 stores. We believe we're still growing. 

As a team we're laser-focused on our customers. Our aspiration is to grow faster by executing our marketing plan, acquiring new customers, expanding distribution, increasing revenues and profits. We believe we have what it takes to be a leading brand in our industry.

We'd Like Your Feedback!

about 2 months ago

We’re always working to be better. As a potential investor we’d love to get your thoughts on our investment opportunity. Can we do anything better?  Do you have any concerns about this investment? Suggestions? 

 We believe we’re a part of a huge addressable market. Often busy people sacrifice their health, with on-the-go foods that are unhealthy. Only 1 in 10 Americans are currently eating enough fruits and vegetables, according to the CDC.That’s over 295 million Americans that are lacking when it comes to setting the foundation for good dietary health. On top of that, about 23.5 million people live in food deserts. Nearly half of them are also low-income. We believe we can help solve this problem with our high quality products. 

Thanks in advance for your feedback . We look forward  to hearing from you. Email:  investors@yaeorganics.com IG:@yaeorganics

4th Quarter Growth Projections

2 months ago

There are various key factors that determine our success. Primarily our ability to raise additional working capital, acquire customers, and scale with supermarkets. We believe we have a great business plan and an experienced team to achieve our projections. Many of our competitors are funded with venture capital which gives them a competitive advantage. We’re working well with the resources we have, however scaling our brand requires additional capital for human resources, manufacturing, marketing, promotions, and scaling with supermarkets. The brands that are generating over $1M in revenue are adequately funded. To compete, and reach our immediate milestones, we believe we’ll need an additional $535,000 working capital. We've come a long way from selling wheatgrass powder at farmer's markets. With your help we're planning to take Yae! Organics to the next level.

Our Healthy Superfood Energy Bars Are Ready!

2 months ago

CREATING A DELICIOUS SPACE FOR EVERYONE TO GROW INTO THEIR HEALTHIEST SELF. 1 BAR=10 SUPERFOODS

Founder, Lorenzo Holley

Growing up some of my earliest memories were of visiting my extended family in North Carolina on the farm thy have cultivated for generations. I grew up with the bounty of land, enjoying the produce and the meals carefully prepared by my mother and grandmother. There's nothing like dinner with the Holley family! 

These experiences stayed with me, even as a kid growing up in New York City, giving me a deep appreciation for the earth and a passion for farm fresh food. But life is hectic and its not easy to eat healthy and find time for fitness when you're always on the go. That's why I created Yae! Organics- to make it easy to get healthy organic juices and snacks- to carry you conveniently from A to B and everywhere in between. 

Our latest delicious snack innovations re-imagine the nutrition bar, creating a nutrient dense snack, bursting with goodness for body and soul. Inspired by soul food desserts prepared at my mom's bakery business, each nutrient dense bar takes you back to mouth watering meals enjoyed with the family. Each bar is packed with 10 Superfoods, high in good fats, plant protein, low in  net carbs with zero added sugar. Full of good none of the bad- no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Non-GMO. 

I looked at every snack bar on the market and couldn't find anything truly plant-based that had the superfoods I love. I'm very excited about venturing into the snack business. Snacks align with our mission of making juicing, and nutrition, convenient without compromising quality. Also, for me, it's an extension of my mother's bakery business and family legacy.

The Road to 1,000,000 Customers

2 months ago

Our Mission

We are a company dedicated to making healthy juicing as easy and accessible as possible without any compromises on quality. We believe that proper nutrition is the foundation for an enhanced quality of life and a healthier future.

The Road to a Million Customers

The road to a million customers starts with our marketing and advertising. We believe great products sell themselves, however, our job is to let consumers know we exist. The cardinal rule of advertising, known as “The Seven Times Factor,” says as a general rule, potential customers need to see an ad seven times or more before they buy. We believe we have a very strong marketing plan that'll do just that. Our goal is to satisfy a million customers by 2024.

PACKAGING IMPROVEMENTS

2 months ago

During the early days we couldn't produce large containers. We'd send customers a few small pouches to compensate for a large size. Some of our customers loved our products so much they didn't mind.  However, we did receive a few complaints. Our initial investors provided the working capital we needed to stock pile large containers and satisfy our customers. We're currently facing a similar hurdle

The sales of our grab n' go packets have grown exponentially online. Revenues have increased 20%, on Amazon alone, between 2020-2021. Now's the time to upgrade our packaging. We're upgrading the outer packaging, of our grab n' go's,  from hard bottom bags to biodegradable boxes. 

We believe that upgrading our packaging will visually enhance the consumer's experience, and give us a competitive edge in supermarkets.

How Are Things Going With Scaling at Retail?

3 months ago


The great news is that many major retailers are excited about our products.  For most brands the greatest challenge is getting their products in front of major retailers. We've managed to overcome that obstacle.  Rick Collett, has taken lead on distribution, and has over 40 years of experience working closely with Costco, Trader Joes, Target, and many other major retailers. Things are looking great. Aside from the manufacturing cost there are various other expenses we must incur for shelf space. Currently we're facing "Slotting Fees": 

What is a Slotting Fee?

A slotting fee — sometimes referred to as a shelving fee, or slotting allowance — is a cost that manufacturers pay to place their products on retail shelves. It is a one-time charge that ensures brands will be able to stock a new product until its sales performance can be established, usually within four to six months. These types of charges are particularly common for emerging brands that have yet to prove themselves in CPG markets.

Prices can vary wildly based on the product, CPG category, or how many locations will shelve a product, with fees typically ranging from $250 to $1000 per item per store. When launching a product at multiple storefronts, total slotting fees might range anywhere from $25,000, for a cluster of regional locations, to $250,000 in high-demand stores.

These fees are not necessarily the only retail costs manufacturers will need to pay. Some companies may also need to address promotional, restocking, or advertising fees related to their products. Nonetheless, stocking fees alone are a major expense for CPG startups — a potentially fatal one if they are unprepared for them.

Proving Ourselves

 We believe our pure ingredients,  unique blends, and nutritional value sets us apart from the crowd. When given a choice consumers will choose us. Occupying shelf space, with major retailers, gives us the opportunity to showcase our value. It also makes us available to new consumers, that are looking for higher quality products, but have never heard of us otherwise. With your help we can share the Yae! Organics message and get us at the top of shelves. 


THIS IS A PIVOTAL MOMENT IN OUR JOURNEY. IF YOU HAVEN'T INVESTED ALREADY NOW'S A GREAT TIME. 

LET'S ALLOCATE SHELF SPACE FOR Yae! ORGANICS AND BECOME A HOUSEHOLD NAME.


9 Reasons Why Trade Shows Are So Important For Our Growth!

3 months ago

Upfront Trade Show expenses can be hefty ranging from $10,000-$50,000, but we believe it's worth the investment.

Each of these reasons to exhibit at a trade show allow us to expand our business. Events like these keep us relevant in our industry. They give us the rare chance to meet with both existing and potential clients in person and even size up our competitors. Next time we have the opportunity to showcase our brand at a trade show, we'd like to seize it. Here are the top 9 reasons:

1. Being face-to-face with potential distributors.....

We may have done our homework on the best ways to attract attention online, but what about in person? Meeting with potential distributors, suppliers, and customers face-to-face means we can talk freely about our brand and answer questions on the spot. We have the chance to showcase our passion for the business, and that genuine attitude can create amazing first impressions.

Some customers may also feel more comfortable doing business with someone whose hand they can actually shake. It gives them a better idea of who we are, which creates confidence in our integrity.

2. Have a motivated audience

Most people who attend trade shows do so because they're looking for something. Many want to see what's new and innovative in their field. Others may be searching for solutions to problems they're facing in their own businesses. For us, this means a captive audience that has an incentive to hear what we have to say.

3. Check out the competition

We'll never have a better chance to scope out the competition than at a trade show. You can use the opportunity to see what other companies are doing differently. Maybe some of them are offering services that our customers want. Trade shows educate us on the ways we can be better, in order to compete with similar brands.

4. Find valuable partners

Specialty trade shows bring out a variety of companies within a similar area of expertise. While this could result in a lineup of competitive brands, it may also mean potential partners.

No matter which industry, you likely need support from vendors or other outsourced services. One of the biggest benefits of exhibiting at a trade show is the opportunity to create these professional bonds. Good relationships can improve our operation and lead to further success.


5. Expand our reach

When we attend trade shows in various regions of the country, we have the ability to expand our customer base. We have access to clients who may have never known we existed otherwise. Impressing local attendees can drive traffic to our website, which could translate into sales.


6. Get instant feedback

Trade show attendees can be the perfect focus group for aspects of our business where we need some input. When people stop by our booth, we ask them questions and encourage honest responses. This is a great chance to promote new products or services and instantly know what people think. Feedback like this can be invaluable if our audience points out potential problems we hadn't considered.

7. Meet existing clients

When networking with others in the industry, we may even have the opportunity to shake hands with buyers we've contacted online. This personal acquaintance helps strengthen our existing business relationships. Retailers may also increase their business based on the meeting, turning small contracts into big ones.

8. Advertising Our brand

We can prepare for trade show success by coming equipped with lots of branded giveaways. Handing out something with our name and pertinent information keeps our business in the minds of potential vendors.

While we'll definitely be marketing ourself, we can also benefit from trade show marketing. Attendees will likely receive information about all exhibits, including yours, at the start of the day. Some events may even host special presentations throughout the event to highlight select participants.

9. Make sales

Sales are the driving force of our bottom line, and trade shows can be lucrative. In-person negotiations, along with special trade show deals and discounts, allow us to lock up new business quickly.  In addition to reaching big agreements, we can also sell older products at lower rates to help clear out inventory.

Oleg is the lead developer of our Yae! Everyday Nutrition Tracking App.

"When Lorenzo first approached me with his vision of making Yae! Organics tech-forward, I was very excited. I let him know that there's already a handful of apps available that track nutrition. We both immediately agreed that our app should do more. As a team we brainstormed for a few weeks, analyzed our customer data, and then we conducted a survey. We discovered that the greatest obstacle for consumers is sticking to a proper nutrition plan. Our app allows our customers to network with their family and friends along with other users for accountability. I believe our app is a game changer! We're building our team now and adding new elements daily. I'm excited to get our project funded so we can release it soon."

We're Now MBE Certified! What does that mean?

4 months ago

Many Fortune 1000 companies in America have supplier diversity programs in place. These programs are specifically designed for large companies to source products and services from minority owned businesses. They do this in an effort to keep their businesses in line with the shifting demographic profile of our country. These companies recognize that a diverse supply base offers a competitive advantage in today’s multicultural business economy.

In other words, large corporations are constantly looking for minority owned businesses to work with. They have supplier diversity programs in place to calculate exactly how successful they are in sourcing products and services from minority suppliers. Therefore one of the top benefits of MBE certification is that any contractual agreement between a corporation and Certified MBE is counted towards that corporation’s supplier diversity goal. The more they spend with Certified MBEs, the closer they get to achieving and surpassing their goal. But you have to be a Certified MBE in order to count towards corporate diversity spending.
