Chia Sisters: A Year in Review
Christmas to Chloe and I is about celebrating community. Our immediate community of family and friends. Our small business community of Nelson foodies, fellow climate activists and good sorts. And you, our amazing community of supporters.
In 2020 the sense of comradeship and family has never been stronger.
In January, we teamed up with ethically made, NZ owned, beverage companies (some would call competitors) to form 'Nudes', Jayden from For The Better Good, Joe from Six Barrel Soda, and Rich from Batchwell Kombucha.
In March, as we head into lockdown, our production manager Kevin brings his daughters Amy and Meggan, and wife Dawn in to run our juicery within their family bubble.
In April, after losing 100% of our cafe sales and considering closing for good, we shift online and send the message out to you. We give a hurray for every order and by the end of the day have sent a few hundred juices and smoothies to Kiwis across the country.
We also connect with Pic's Peanut Butter and Proper Crisps to create our Little Box of Sunshine, the essential box of goodies to fuel foodies and to help Nelson businesses stay afloat
In May, we put our Mum's family favourite homemade muesli in a brown paper bag and offer it to you guys, batch made to order every week.
As Chloe & I sit down and write this, we acknowledge all the amazing people that make up our Chia Sisters Community, those that we couldn't have done 2020 without. And that includes you.
Chloe & Florence, and the entire Chia Sisters team (all nine of us!!)
