Amazon.com – Sale Finale

Amazon.com departure…

Last year we were asked countless times to sell our products on Amazon.com and we did. We went through the process of getting through the “Gate keeper” at Amazon and was permitted to sell in the Grocery category. We marketed out products and let people we know we were there. We had a few sales here and there, but not to the extent that the engine of Amazon was hoping to take us. It was a let down for us quite frankly.

With that going on a decision was made back in Sept 16′ to exit Amazon after the holiday season. Well, today is the day that we were going to have all of our product shipped back to us and inventoried here. There was a hitch…removal fees and shipping charges. Both of them I was aware of…but .50 cents per unit to pack in a box and send shakers back? No..

So, I am going to pass on this REDUCTION in price to you. Head to Amazon.com and get a shaker of Classic, Carolina or El Toro at just $5.00 each and use your prime to get FREE shipping! I figure we’ll liquidate the stock rather than incur the removal fee. The original retail at Amazon was $7.69, so this is a great discount at $5 bucks! When the inventory is gone…we depart. Pick up a shaker and tell a friend! We’ll even add 2x your purchase price to your rewards account! Pick up all 3 shakers and spend $15 dollars and we’ll make sure you get $30 toward your first coupon for the year! Details are below as well!!

Reflections and a great deal…

2016 Recap:

Over the past few years we’ve seen growth, steady growth and growth in both our retail and wholesale business. We can’t thank our customers enough for seeing that we are WAY different than what you are buying off the shelves in the market or in big box stores. Our customers have told us a lot this year that just because you get a good deal on seasoning, doesn’t always mean that it is going to taste good or be a great value. We hit both marks. We will never be the least expensive on the shelf and we know that because with a few extra dollars we want to (and do) deliver quality in every ounce. We are as proud as the first day that we launched that we are a handcrafted seasoning that only uses the best ingredients.

Self Sustaining:

We were very excited to launch our 7th seasoning (Savina #7) this past November after a very difficult start to the growing season here in NJ. We’ve ramped up our goals for next year and will be around 150 plants in 2017. We will continue to grow what we put in our blends so that we know you are getting the best ingredients. We will continue to evolve and we’ll have some exciting things happening in the year ahead.

Moving forward:
