Local company now offering free shipping for their ready-to-blend veggie pods
–Amy and Jaime Paniagua of Paso Robles started selling their plant-based, low-sugar, frozen Veggie Pods almost a year ago. Their mission: “To bring an innovative, healthy product to the natural food industry, delivering people local produce in a way that is easy and cuts down on food waste through ready-to-blend pods.”
The pods are available at nine local grocery/specialty stores and are now offering free local delivery from San Miguel to Pismo Beach. To see where the pods are sold visit www.jamysfinefoods.com.
The Veggie Pod is made of 12 to 15 locally sourced ingredients. The produce is not cold-pressed but blended whole, preventing the loss of essential nutrients. All three Veggie Pod blends contain fresh ginger, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, and cucumber. After blended, the mix is injected into a little pod with the 3 oz. concentrate and frozen immediately to ensure freshness for up to 6 months, when kept frozen.
Staying healthy during a health crisis
As all small businesses, Amy and Jaime say they are now “forced to change with the times.” Their latest dream is to bring the Veggie Pods into every California health care facility to ensure their staff stays healthy during this unprecedented worldwide emergency. “We all need to do our part so that health professionals stay well under this pressure,” they said in a press release. “That is where Veggie Pods come in. Of course, hospitals are not in the business of nutrition. With Amy & Jaime’s Veggie Pods—the new fast food—(we) can support their staff to stay in good health. Now more than ever, our health care system needs Amy & Jaime’s Veggie Pods to fuel those on the front lines.”
