Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking into your favorite supermarket. Now let's take a walk down the frozen dessert section and take a look at all of the options available for ice cream..can you tell me:
How many of them are Haitian American owned?
How many truly reflect authentic caribbean flavors (beyond the coconut and pina colada)?
Depending on where you live, it'll range from none to a handful.
Oh Lait! Oh Lait! Was a response to a demand that was largely overlooked by major ice cream manufacturers in the US.
Tropical ice cream flavors are enjoyed by millions in the US (Caribbean and beyond), however it is difficult to find ice cream flavors that:
- Satisfy those cravings
- All natural
- Accessible nationwide
- For people like myself- represents a little piece of home
This summer, we will be offering five flavors:
Coconut Rum Raisin
While we are actively in production mode, we seek funding for the following:
- Continued R&D (research and development) support as we continue to explore new flavors for future production runs.
- Continue to grow the team- specifically social media management, bookkeeping, customer support and sales.
- Summertime is by far the peak period for ice cream. This year, we'd like to participate in festivals and community events in the NYC area. Funding would allow us to purchase additional supplies.
If you made it this far, we're already grateful! Thank you in advance for your time and support!
