I love treating myself to little tasty treats. But what I eat, I want to be fair. So no unnatural stuff and made with respect.
At my work it was Christmas (or Sinterklaas for the Dutchies) 365 days of the year, chocolate and sweets everywhere. After unsuccessfully stalking the caterer and the vending machine guy, I decided to create my owns snacks. After a while I started letting my family and friends taste them. And asking them if they would buy them. The feedback I got was positive, sometimes a bit rude, but it pushed me in the right direction.
So about a year ago I started justnuts. Realizing that two people know more then one and knowing that I'm not good at everything, I asked my good friend Thijs to join me, which he did.
So now we make Happy Honest Treats together.
I've build up a set of skills regarding, marketing and operations. Thijs knows a lot about finance and is a very driven sales person. The perfect combination.
