Spirulina Flake

Spirulina flake should have been in last week but we are still waiting. It was ordered 3 weeks ago. This is the 2nd time they have messed us up with delivery times which we are a little annoyed about.
One of our feed mills finally agreed to start up on this flake for us & we are going to be using this in a couple of months time.
Samples look very good & we can get it mixed with Chlorella which also looks good.
It's going to take a few months to get production going but I think supply problems will be history when we get it organised.
We apologise to customers waiting for this product. It will be fresh off the production line when it arrives.

Spirulina Flake

We had a big run on Spirulina flake in the 1.8kg buckets & ran out over a few days. The manufacturer is making up new product & will be shipping next week (22-26 Feb). We usually keep a good stock of this as it has a good customer following.
As always any back orders will be put on overnight carrier & customers will receive the day after we receive the shipment (UK).

As you know, this flake has 30% Spirulina content. We are having a new flake made up at the mill which contains 12%. This looks a really dark flake. We have had samples & they look really good. Also being made up are Chlorella flakes. Again, samples look really good. We are looking at blending Spirulina, Chlorella & Kelp as a special 'veggie' diet. Much darker & richer than other flakes of this type currently on the market.

Dainichi Update

The Dainichi shipment again ran into problems regarding a piece of paper which arrived as a copy instead of an original. This has been sorted out now thankfully & we expect to have delivery on Wednesday.
To say this shipment has had its problems is an understatement. It should have been here beginning January.
Our apologies to those waiting for this food. We hope to clear the backlog & have outstanding orders on the road Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

At long last the Dainichi shipment has landed & is currently going through customs. Hopefully the airline got the paperwork sorted this time. It should be here very soon all being well & I can clear the backlog of orders.

More buckets of Spirulina flake due in shortly. I'm down to just one following a mad week of sales.

Had some new samples in of a stronger Spirulina flake & another veggie blend which looks & smells really nice. Just waiting for prices. We will probably need to bring in 100kg minimum & pack this in our own buckets which are already in hand.

Currently looking at new packaging mainly to fill the growing interest from the trade. It's cost quite a bit to set up but things are starting to come together. Must admit the packaging looks good & will look great on retailers shelves.
Eventually all our products will be made available like this but it does take time & a lot of money to get the goods packed in this way.
