Raw Bites PH makes healthy snacks and drinks
GAIL Go and Jane Dee created Raw Bites PH in 2017, a digital store dedicated to providing nutritious and healthy meals and drinks. The LOCAD cloud logistics platform, which helps them innovate, ensures that items stay fresh, accessible and delicious. Raw Bites PH began as a snack subscription box company, sending subscribers healthy imported snacks monthly. Go and Dee followed this approach for two years before they could assess what tickled people’s taste buds. With the launch of its website and marketplaces, the online store is giving more people easy access to their products. Today, he offers a list of healthy food alternatives and non-dairy beverages. With its growing popularity, Raw Bites PH was unable to keep up with the sudden increase in orders, so they brought in LOCAD’s expertise in warehousing and logistics. Since then, he has been helping owners meet growing demands for their products. Sustainability is a growing consideration for e-commerce shoppers these days, as shown by LOCAD’s research into key e-commerce trends for 2022. The report found that 92% of SEA customers are willing to pay more for brands offering sustainable products. Raw Bites PH is ready to meet this trend because of its commitment to sustainability.
