Have a Safe & Merry Christmas, and a Better 2021! [Round Up] 12 Days of Raw Bites Christmas Giveaway!
No gimmicks, promotions or sale.
As the year draws to a close, we're filled with gratitude.
Thank you for supporting our business this year, whether you're shopping for this website, Lazada, Shopee or any of our stockists. Your support means a lot to us and all the other small business that's part of this chain.
This year has been tough. There were uncertainties back in March as to how our business would operate with one of the two founding partners being stuck in a different country. But your resilience — especially in 2020 — inspires us on a daily basis to give you the freshest and newest healthy & wholesome product out there.
So rather than sulking about 2020, we'd like to look back on the things we've achieved this year... of course, with your help:
🤝 Added more local brands and partnerships
In 2020, we added at least 20 local brands and partnered with other importers to resell their brands in our webshops. The more notable ones are Oh So Healthy!, Jacob's Well, Theodore's, Earth Desserts, Stash Tea, and The Berry Company. Our goal is to make healthy shopping a lot easier by making our webshops your one stop shop for anything wholesome.
🌍 Introduced new international wholesome products
As an importer-distributor, we aim to introduce international brands that have proven successes in different parts of the world, making healthier choices more accessible to you. This year, we introduced Fruit Bowl (fruit snacks), MOMA Porridge, Supernature Rapeseed Oil, and Only Organic Baby Purees.
We also benefited from the innovation from our international partners such as Rude Health with their launch of their Barista line and Lizi's Organic with their new functional Muesli lines.
We look forward to growing our business along with these brands. We already have an exciting Q1 lined up and can't wait to share them with you!
🏅 Broke our sales record on our thematic campaigns (May Sale, Mid-Year Sale, 11.11, 12.12)
No one had anticipated the impact of the pandemic to businesses, big or small. Customer behavior have changed from shopping in brick & mortar stores to online and we've benefitted from that. So much so that we eventually have to hire extra packers to process orders as fast as we can.
We can honestly say that we worked non-stop in 2020 but even with broken backs and eye-bags, our hearts are full. :)
🎄 Launched another successful Christmas catalogue that have us packing up until after Christmas
With the new local and international brands in our portfolio, we launched new packages in our Christmas catalogue this year. The most popular packages are Great Mornings, Gourmet, and Support Local packages. We also launched budget-friendly bagged packages. We're glad you liked them!
📅 First e-grocery to launch a digital advent calendar.
This year, we wanted to do something fun up until we close shop. It's our first time to giveaway this much freebies. Each day, starting Dec 11, we revealed the freebie for the day and how many lucky shoppers can get it. We gave away up to P70,000 freebies in 12 days. Click here to view a round-up of our giveaways.
Hopefully we can make it bigger and better next year, yes? How about 25 days of Christmas fun? 😜
We feel more fortunate than ever and are excited about what's ahead in 2021. So from our team to yours, have a safe & Merry Christmas, and a Better 2021! We will be back on Jan 4 to answer your inquiries and to serve you better!
Jane, Gail (and Baby Case), April, and all our office pets (Jacob, Ellie, Snowie, Summer and Sunshine)
