The countdown is on

There is less than four weeks to go before our trial with SuperValu officially begins and we couldn’t be more excited. In January we will be informed on the exact stores that you will be able to get your hands on the product and we will let you know as soon as we do.  Then the fun of instore tastings and promotion of our Sorbet’s will begin – so if you see us in a SuperValu near you be sure to come over to Aisling and myself and say hello!!

Since we last posted we have being waiting patiently for our packaging to arrive, one of the bigger learnings that I’ve had to date on this journey is that sourcing packaging is a complete nightmare and one that will consume a huge amount of time and effort. We were lucky enough to be able to look after the design of the packaging ourselves but the task of getting someone to supply this when you don’t have large order quantities is no easy feat…. But now that the packaging has arrived in our offices we’re quickly forgetting all those challenges.

Since receiving the packaging Caroline and the team at Happy Days are busy getting the product ready for stores, staying true to our original recipe and making and packing the product by hand.

The critics (our colleagues, families and friends) have been tasting our sorbets and judging by the empty pots they seem to love it. We hope the SuperValu shoppers agree in January!
