Hanna, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and autoimmune issues. I decided to put my energy into learning about the healing powers of anti-inflammatory foods and embracing a Paleo lifestyle. I loved bread and knew we had to part ways but it would not be for long! I was determined to create a bread that met all my dietary limitations, something I could not find on the market. After a year of testing, I finally perfected this unique, gluten-free, grain-free, organic, non-GMO, Vegan and Paleo bread. I’m so excited to share my bread that you will actually feel good about eating, has beneficial nutrients, and tastes delicious!
Has it been a smooth road?
There was a lot of thinking outside the box! Since we have such a clean product, we knew our packaging would be extremely important to our customers. We spent a lot of time researching our options and was very pleased to find 100% compostable bags and labels, which our customers just love. Also, finding the right way to spread the word about our bread is a learning experience because it is for healthy eaters and people with dietary limitations, not restricted to age or location. We keep trying to reach the people who want to bring bread back into their diet.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into AWG Bakery story. Tell us more about the business.
AWG Bakery makes organic, gluten/grain-free bread that is Vegan & Paleo. Our bread is extremely unique and unlike any other bread on the market. When choosing our ingredients, it was so important for us to have a high standard and choose organic. Our customers have referred to our bread as life-changing and said this is how bread should taste! People that have not eaten bread for years can now eat ours because it checks all of their dietary boxes. When we hear comments like this, it is the reason we started the company. Our website has some amazing reviews. We pride ourselves on being a small family-run start-up business that cares for our customers and their health. Our flavors are Everyday, Rosemary, and CinnaSpice in minis and loaves.
Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
Other small business owners/health food companies have been so supportive and shared priceless advice. We look forward to helping other small businesses in the future. The Instagram community has been so welcoming and encouraging by sharing their love of our bread on that platform. We have partnered with many like-minded companies for giveaways through Instagram. These have been a great way for us to reach more people.
