Happy New Years!
The Safaroma team would like to wish you all a very happy new years and say thank you for making 2017 a year we will never forget!
A quick glance at 2017: Together, we launched our Kickstarter, designed our first line of sustainable products, connected and partnered with two amazing female co-ops and went through organic certification on all our teas! And best of all we have already helped build a sustainable business for 167 female farmers!
We have been posting updates on our Instagram and Facebook accounts, so please make sure to follow them for more updates below:
Here is a collection of the biggest highlights to date:
Summer 2017 - We launched our Kickstarter campaign and successfully funded thanks to our amazing pledgers!
Fall 2017 - We locked down our partnerships with our fair-trade female farming partners as well as our organic tea partners as well.
Sept to Nov 2017 - With our package designs completed, our blends ready for testing and our saffron supplied and ready, we submit our line for organic certification from PCO, a long 3-4 month process that we've learned a lot from.
December 11th - We are officially organic certified! This green light allows us to move our Saffron, Pure Saffron and merchandise products into full production. All sales directly empower our female farmer partners.
December 17th - Our first official Safaroma mug sample is in! Designed by amazing women in Toronto, made to support inspiring women farmers abroad.
December 22nd - The numbers are in! With our first mass order of saffron and teas, we are officially empowering 167 female farmers have a better life that they have chosen. Thank you so much!
December 26th - Big update! We are very excited to share that our pure saffron bottle samples have finally arrived! We will be moving into packaging and full production for our pure saffron next week!
December 28th - Our samples of Pillows and Framed Art work have come in and are approved for full production!
Moving into 2018
We will be moving to get samples for our saffron tea line and complete production looking to ship the Kickstarter fulfillments by the end of the month. We could not have done this without you, so thank you so much and Happy New Years!
