Tortilla Factory Updates

Here are more up-to-date pictures from the work being done on the factory.

We recently purchased a dough divider that is being shipped from Connecticut. We hope to move the tortilla machine into the space within the next couple of weeks. The goal was to have production going by now, so that Nature’s Food Market & Juice Bar would be able to make their Raw Pumpkin Cheesecakes for Thanksgiving. But, if you contact Wendy at the Market, you may be able to place a special order.

Tim (Created Whole) and Chuck (Nature’s Food Market) have been hard at work everyday getting the place up to health code. If you refer back to a few blog posts ago, you will see what the space looked like a month ago.

In a few weeks we will post before and after pictures.

Our dream is happening!

What Does “Going Green” Mean?

Leave a comment

Even though Created Whole has been producing tortillas for over two years, with the opening of our new factory, it’s as if we are starting at day one.  With a clean slate, there are a lot of aspects of the business that we need to take into consideration, one of those being creating a “Green” company

The term green is often thrown around, but what does “Going Green” mean?

According to Kaplan, who has written the book Greening Your Small Business, “going green is the implementation of a broad range of policies and procedures focused on conserving and improving the natural environment, both for its own sake as well as to improve business strength and sustainability” (12).

Going green involves adopting a set of guiding principles related to sustainability and implementing practices that support those principles throughout your business.  When it comes to sustainability, there are three elements that are involved:  environmental, economic, and social (Kaplan, 13).

The book offers guidelines and ways to help small businesses go green, emphasizing that companies need to focus initially on aspects of the organization that are already green, while continuing to implement further reaching strategies.

The book outlines 8 key steps to going green, and they are the following:

  1. Commit
  2. Define goals and objectives
  3. Assess your greenness
  4. Assess your risks
  5. Assess your opportunities
  6. Create a Plan
  7. Implement your plan
  8. Communicate

Lots of work has been happening on our tortilla factory that is set to open November 1st.  YEE-HAW!! We are FINALLY going to have our own facility and we are stoked! We are really exited to be working closely with Nature’s Food Market and Juice Bar, and Created Whole will share the office, warehouse, and kitchen space of the building with them.  Owners, Chuck and Wendy will be making raw, vegan, foods, one of which will be raw vegan cheesecakes that will be available for retail sale in more locations.  Not only will this be a tortilla factory and kitchen, there are plans to involve the Bakersfield community through health education classes.  Did we mention how excited we are?

Projects, projects, projects. The key is learning to prioritize.  I haven’t found the key yet, but this is what I did start and finish.  A recipe page today.  It’s part of the Website Project.
