One challenge is sourcing products for some small companies; while others face a small quota for the products they need. We challenge this through working with our vendors and pulling from our wholesale bulk stock of organic coffee and tea products. Our minimums are very small and we only source quality products around the world. So if you are looking to create a new product or just purchase raw products we can help.
