About

Norish Limited

Introducing our Founder — Gina Urlich

 

An alarmingly high number of children are suffering the consequences of poor diets and a food system that is failing them.

 

At least 1 in 3 children under five is either undernourished or overweight. Almost 2 in 3 children between six months and two years of age are not fed food that supports their rapidly growing bodies and brains. This puts them at risk of poor brain development, weak learning, low immunity & increased infections. Increasing numbers of diet related diseases amongst our younger generation is a global concern. There is a heavy reliance on commercial baby food that drives a lot of these diseases.

 

Norish was developed to fill the void in the market & offer parents convenience without compromising on quality.

 

In the 16 years that I have been a mother, the only innovative change the baby food industry has seen has been in the packaging and not the food itself.

 

As a mother of four, nurse & clinical nutritionist I knew there had to be healthier options for busy & overwhelmed parents. My goal was to create a transparent alternative that wouldn’t just enrich children’s lives but also make life easier for parents. It had to be quick, easy, convenient, wholesome and tasty. It had to be backed by evidence, but led with heart.

 

Ready-made baby and toddler foods should promote good health and good dietary habits.

 

Introducing NORISH, a category-changing baby food developed in New Zealand. Freeze-dried to offer convenience, concentrated nutrition & peace of mind for parents.

 

We’re raising investment to accelerate our growth and impact. Join us in shaping the future of children’s nutrition and invest in Norish.

Industry Trends

 

The global baby food market was valued at $67.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $116.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2031. The market is dominated by multinational companies offering competitively priced on the go products with little nutritional value.

 

The rise in ‘clean whole foods’, particularly for children has forced these companies to re-look at their product offering and we are now seeing more organic and ‘natural’ lines added to their range. However, the manufacturing process has remained the same which effectively negates the added nutrition they are marketing and doesn’t improve and we don’t think it improves of the trust that has been lost in these brands through articles published on the poor nutritional value they represent and large use of ‘fillers’ to keep costs down.

 

Over 75% of mothers enter back into the workforce in the postpartum period. Convenience is almost a necessity for the modern-day family & it shouldn’t be at the expense of the children’s health.

 

All children deserve the best start in life, ensuring they can grow and develop in the healthiest way possible. New research reveals two thirds (67%) of baby and toddler foods in NZ & Australian supermarkets fail to meet 7 nutrition recommendations set by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) European office.

 

Foods for toddlers performed worst, with a shocking 9 in 10 toddler foods failing nutrition recommendations.

 

Iodine deficiency is the main cause of brain damage in childhood. It results in impaired cognitive development & motor development. NZ & Australian soil is depleted in this essential mineral due to modern farming practices.

 

The baby food category is dominated by highly processed nutrient-devoid purées and toddler snacks, with more than half the purées sold in the supermarkets containing 16g of sugar (four teaspoons) in a single serve.

 

Products are dressed up as from whole foods with nutritional benefits - the category is awash with misinformation. Convenient food options that deliver the nutritional needs of babies and young children, while meeting the expectations of parents who are looking for quality, whole food experiences for their families, are sorely lacking.

Our Why

 

Our purpose is to decrease diet-related diseases by enriching families lives through nutrient-dense whole foods.

 

Our Products

 

The current NORISH range includes four puree sachets. Designed as first foods for babies, these provide a wholesome meal and are a healthy solution to instant baby food. Simply add water to the puree powder and you have all the benefits of mother nature’s gifts ready within minutes.

 

 

We know that nourishing your family is an ongoing labour of love, which is why we have developed the NORISH cans. This range combines the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet to boost family meals and smoothies. These are designed to nourish babies but are so tasty and nutritious, the whole family will love them.

 

 

NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

New products to be launched in FY23.

 

The plant-based space is another emerging opportunity in baby food, due to the rise of flexitarian consumers in Western markets. Millennials, the consumer segment that represents the bulk of new parents, are also the generation that consume plant-based dairy more regularly. And considering that nearly 40% of consumers choose these alternatives “to feel healthier”, the habit is likely to be passed on to their offspring. New Category Introductions in FY24 Toddler supplements & ready meals.

Our Platforms for Growth

Prospects in New Zealand - The New Zealand market for commercially manufactured baby food sits at around $40m pa in sales each year and is growing at just under 5% each year CAGR (2022-2026).

 

Our primary focus for the upcoming year will be on enhancing our direct-to-consumer sales via our website and shopping channels on social media platforms. With the ever-increasing availability of consumer goods online and the advent of social shopping, we believe our robust presence on social media provides an exceptional opportunity for deeper e-commerce penetration.

 

We are currently stocked in 35 independent retailers across New Zealand. Our acceptance into Foodstuffs NI is a significant milestone, and we are eagerly awaiting our activation date.

 

Prospects in Australia - The Australian market for commercially manufactured baby food sits at around $200m pa in sales each year and is growing at just under 5% each year CAGR (2022-2026). Our first market of call is Australia, with a 3PL engaged, our marketing agency engaged and our administration aligned to launch ticked off. Our Australia launch is forecast for January 2024.

 

 

Prospects in Asia - Asia accounts for 89% of all baby food sales globally and as such will be a priority. With China’s forecasted growth and Japans spend per capita these two countries could be targeted first.

Risk Mitigation

 

Quality Control - High Risk

Baby food is a highly sensitive category and recalls make headlines. We have strict quality assurance processes in place that ensure all of our ingredients are purchased from approved suppliers and tested for safety before they are delivered. We manufacture our finished goods at MPI certified sites to ensure all of our products are manufactured to the highest standards of safety and quality. We also work closely with external consultants in regards to product formulations and label claims.

 

Working Capital - High Risk

Working capital is key to our ability to grow globally and achieve momentum and size. This capital raise will provide sufficient cash to execute growth initiatives without creating undue additional pressure on working capital allocated to other parts of the business.

 

Finance - Medium Risk

Our Finance team monitor working capital on a daily basis and provide weekly reporting to the executive management team.

 

Economic Downturn - Medium Risk

Our high end consumers will always have money to spend on their child making our niche less susceptible to the current downturn. Our direct to consumer e-commerce model allows us to sell cross-border to consumers all around the globe, minimising the risk of an economic downturn in a single country severely impacting our cash flow. With the rise of cross-border online shopping, D2C business models are one of the safest ways to ensure business continuity. To drive customer retention we will be investing in leading edge technology focused on the customer experience and analysts which will allow us to maintain a nimble fixed cost structure built for scale should we be impacted by any economic downturns in the future.

 

Competition - Medium Risk

Competition in the category is to be expected however the multinational nature of the category, our high end customer and selling model means we can focus on delivering our proposition. With Gina leading our exciting NPD programme we will be constantly innovating and diversifying our product offering to stay ahead of our competitors. To further mitigate the risk of competitive intensity, we will continue to focus on product quality, sustainability, transparency, social responsibility and superior customer service to drive brand loyalty. Our design-led approach to product innovation will ensure that what we bring to market will add the value to families lives.

 

Manufacture & Supply - Low Risk

Our freeze-dried technology means we can forecast & stock build ingredients in season & retain a minimum 2 year shelf life to ensure seasonal produce at the best prices. We conduct demand planning monthly for all of the products in our supplement and skincare ranges. We have rolling forecasts that look up to 18 months in advance and work closely with our suppliers and manufacturers to ensure they are aware of our upcoming demand.

 

Strategic Implementation - Low Risk

We have successfully managed our business to date with limited funds sourced primarily from cash flow and an initial raise. With this additional capital raise, we will be able to launch into export markets that require significant financial investment. We have an established Advisory Board and work with market-leading external agencies to help us achieve our strategies. R

 

Recruit & Retain - Low Risk

As a small company, the departure of a senior member of our team could impact our ability to execute upon our strategic plan. We have key person insurance for Gina in place. NORISH will develop as a most preferred employer true to its character of knowledgeable, capable and caring with a commitment to the Living Wage, paying market level (or above) remuneration,offering preferential and flexible working hours, an employee discount scheme, We maintain a values-led culture and have an appealing brand story. We are confident we will be able to recruit additional top-tier personnel as required.

We made it! Only $300k left.

15/11/2023 at 2:07 PM

We are so grateful & to be honest quite emotional about the support that has come our way in the past month. This equity crowdfunding capital raise really cements the community & purpose behind Norish & we couldn’t be more proud.

 

The comments rolling through on PledgeMe are so beautiful & heartfelt.

 

Because of the large investor coming in, we’ve reduced our maximum goal on PledgeMe to $700,000. This means there’s only $300k worth of shares left for our community to purchase.

 

Huge thanks to all 173 of you who have invested in us. Thank you for the support & we are thrilled to have you on this journey with us.

 

Gina & the Norish team

Over $230k pledged! 3 days to go.

13/11/2023 at 3:13 PM

We’re celebrating a lot of things this week - the biggest is us cracking the $200,000 pledged mark! With 100 pledgers we’re now sitting at $233,150, which means we are now 67% funded, with 3 days to go. Thank you to everyone who has pledged.

 

The team at PledgeMe tell me that there’s this thing called deadline magic - where most of the pledges come in the final few days as people do what people do - sneak in just before the deadline. Please, if you want to relieve some of my stress and haven't already- pledge now :) Here’s the link again: https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/investments/557-norish-limited.  The campaign is closing at 7pm on Thursday, 16 November.

 

We’re also celebrating the fact that we’re preparing to roll out in New World. Currently we’re in retail 35 stores - and getting into New World would really push up our sales & brand exposure.

 

We have big ambitions to grow - because we want to grow our impact but also because we want to grow our return for shareholders. We want to follow in the footsteps of founders like Brianne West, who grew Ethique with the support of her crowd and provided a 48-times return to her earliest crowdfunding investors.

 

Thanks for all your support with this campaign, we can’t wait to welcome you into the Norish family.

So much interest our product SOLD OUT!

31/10/2023 at 11:20 AM

To our beautiful Norish friends & fans,

 

Between awards & equity there has been a lot of visits to our website!

 

We are so humbled by your support over the last two weeks - for the second year in a row NORISH has won the children's health category for Best of Natural Awards & there are now 77 of you who have pledged over $156,000 towards our goal of $350,000 for our equity crowdfunding!

 

Not only have we had people showing their support and interest by investing - we’ve also had people showing their interest in our mission by buying our products. So many in fact, we ran out! We’re working hard to restock our range, but we think this shows the interest in feeding our babies better is growing.

 

We’ve also had some interesting approaches the last two weeks from potential distributors - which has led to some early and exciting conversations. Again, it’s clear to us that there are ways we can grow Norish into new markets, and now distributors are coming to us!

 

Thanks again for all your support - all your pledges, comments, shares and kind words mean the world!

 

Please keep sharing our purpose-led brand with those you think might be interested in investing. We are very excited for this next chapter.

 

Warm regards, Gina & the Norish team.

One week in and almost halfway!

25/10/2023 at 8:49 PM

Thanks so much for investing in us. It means the world to us, and our plans. Watching you all pledging in those first few hours and days has been such an amazing validation of what we have achieved so far and what we want to do - thank you. 

 

In order to get to our goal, we need to make a bit of noise about this campaign. Can you help us?

 

  1. Could you share our campaign through social media, and share why you’ve supported us?

  2. Could you forward our IM and campaign page to five people that you think might be interested?

 

We are also hosting an Instagram Live tomorrow night (Thursday, 26 October) at 8pm. Just head over to our instagram page (@gina.urlich) then, and you’ll be able to watch our pitch - and ask me questions. I’ll have Anna from PledgeMe there as well to answer any questions you might have about equity crowdfunding.

 

Thank you for your unwavering support, and we look forward to having you as a vital part of our growing family.

 

Warm regards,

Gina & the Norish team.

    Questions 6


    Hi, new to PledgeMe so I apologise for the silly question. Do investors who pledge have the responsibility to put in more money (based on their investment) if the company goes into trouble, as shareholders/directors in other companies do? Thank you

    Posted on 13-11-2023 by Natasha

    Kia ora Natasha, Anna here from PledgeMe. If you become a shareholder in Norish, you are not expected or required to invest again in the future. Here's some more information about what it means to become a shareholder: https://guide.pledgeme.co.nz/what-does-it-mean-to-invest

    Answered on 14-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


    Thanks Gina, so nothing contracted in yet for Australia? As for the FY26 financials, is that taking the planned Asian expansion into account? Moving from less than $400k to $9m+ in revenue in 3 years is a substantial estimation. Are there Asia-based (China/Japan) distributors in place already?
    Can you please also advise if there was any Independent advice given for this pre-money valuation? I note on page 48 that this was provided to you by your board and validated by your accountant and that you have accountants on your board (pg13)? Thanks, hoping to invest but need a couple of crucial gaps in the IM filled first please.
    Regards, Si

    Posted on 09-11-2023 by Simon

    Hi Simon,
    We appreciate the thoroughness of your inquiry.

    Currently, we've adopted a per capita & market size strategy based on our traction in NZ and our expansion into new export markets. While we've formed relationships with distribution channels, formal contracts are still pending. After the campaign's conclusion on Wednesday, we plan to advance our strategy and finalise contracts.

    In terms of valuation, we've engaged in discussions with formal valuation companies. However, given stage of the business and cost of an independent valuation, we decided not to complete a formal valuations at this point. Our current valuation is based on a hybrid of financial performance (current sales x future expected EBITDA performance) as well as intangible assets and value. We have two accountants on our advisory board who bring a wealth of FMCG experience.

    We look forward to having you join our crowdfunding campaign.

    Kindest regards, Gina

    Answered on 14-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


    Can you please offer a breakdown of where this substantial increase in revenue is being generated offshore? Ie, are there distribution contracts in place already prior to your launch into Australia/Asia? I note that you have already been selling into Australia since inception, so would like to understand more around how sales will ramp up there. I understand you've offered a 'Per Capita' estimation here, however in my experience in is very difficult to assume an 'apples for apples' approach when factoring in export markets. Thank you in advance

    Posted on 30-10-2023 by Simon

    Hello Simon, you're absolutely right. Norish has been shipping to the Australian market from the very beginning, and our sales there have grown organically without any specific marketing efforts. We are having wholesale opportunities from Australia come to us & regular requests online for Norish to be available in AU. We've made sales forecasts based on per capita estimations and have built robust relationships with two of our existing wholesale partners in New Zealand, which we intend to extend into the Australian market. We acknowledge that the Australian market is not an exact replica of our current situation in New Zealand, and our entry into these new markets is a carefully strategised endeavour.

    What was the actual pre-money valuation amount for the 2022 capital raise?

    Posted on 26-10-2023 by Cristian

    Hi Cristian, the pre-money valuation in 2022 is a private agreement between the shareholders. It was at a slightly lower valuation reflected in earlier traction as well as bringing on an experienced advisory board. Thanks

    Answered on 05-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


    What was the pre-money valuation of your last year's capital raise and how much did you raise?
    When did Norish get the $25k from the Ministry of Awesome and was it a loan or an equity investment?

    Posted on 20-10-2023 by Cristian

    Hi Cristian,

    Our early investment round was at a lower valuation as we were earlier in our traction, and wanting to get our advisors on board.

    The Ministry of Awesome prize was a SAFE which converted as part of this round to shares. You can see that in our capitalisation table in the IM.
    Thanks for your questions.

    Answered on 25-10-2023 by Gina Urlich


    1. could you please confirm my reading of the financial summary table on the web page ("Details").
    [Revenue- Operating Expenses] doesn't equal EBITDA which needs explanation. This is because the table doesn't include Cost of Goods Sold (ref p52 of the IM)? Confirm?
    2. Assuming that's the case is there a reason the gross profit improves to 60% cause that seems like good progress?
    3. Finally p54 "Overhead assumptions" - is there a missing sentence at the end of that section?
    thanks

    Posted on 19-10-2023 by Josh Forde

    Hi Josh, thanks for the questions.
    Q1: Confirming the table on the PledgeMe Website is high-level financial information and it does not include COGS. That level of detail is available in the IM on page 52 as you’ve noted.
    Q2: YTD actual GP % sitting at 56.5% so an increase of 3.5% which is due to “new” stock being sold with lower production costs due to larger production runs and therefore hitting price breaks in terms of minimum order quantities. The slight decline of GP within FY25 and FY26 is due to the mix of e-commerce sales and wholesale sales assumptions changing, with an increased play in wholesale.
    Q3: Originally there was a table of our internal resource onboarding strategy, so the last sentence is a little out of context. We are happy to talk to our internal resource onboarding strategy with you however.

    Norish Limited

    Introducing our Founder — Gina Urlich

     

    An alarmingly high number of children are suffering the consequences of poor diets and a food system that is failing them.

     

    At least 1 in 3 children under five is either undernourished or overweight. Almost 2 in 3 children between six months and two years of age are not fed food that supports their rapidly growing bodies and brains. This puts them at risk of poor brain development, weak learning, low immunity & increased infections. Increasing numbers of diet related diseases amongst our younger generation is a global concern. There is a heavy reliance on commercial baby food that drives a lot of these diseases.

     

    Norish was developed to fill the void in the market & offer parents convenience without compromising on quality.

     

    In the 16 years that I have been a mother, the only innovative change the baby food industry has seen has been in the packaging and not the food itself.

     

    As a mother of four, nurse & clinical nutritionist I knew there had to be healthier options for busy & overwhelmed parents. My goal was to create a transparent alternative that wouldn’t just enrich children’s lives but also make life easier for parents. It had to be quick, easy, convenient, wholesome and tasty. It had to be backed by evidence, but led with heart.

     

    Ready-made baby and toddler foods should promote good health and good dietary habits.

     

    Introducing NORISH, a category-changing baby food developed in New Zealand. Freeze-dried to offer convenience, concentrated nutrition & peace of mind for parents.

     

    We’re raising investment to accelerate our growth and impact. Join us in shaping the future of children’s nutrition and invest in Norish.

    Industry Trends

     

    The global baby food market was valued at $67.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $116.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2031. The market is dominated by multinational companies offering competitively priced on the go products with little nutritional value.

     

    The rise in ‘clean whole foods’, particularly for children has forced these companies to re-look at their product offering and we are now seeing more organic and ‘natural’ lines added to their range. However, the manufacturing process has remained the same which effectively negates the added nutrition they are marketing and doesn’t improve and we don’t think it improves of the trust that has been lost in these brands through articles published on the poor nutritional value they represent and large use of ‘fillers’ to keep costs down.

     

    Over 75% of mothers enter back into the workforce in the postpartum period. Convenience is almost a necessity for the modern-day family & it shouldn’t be at the expense of the children’s health.

     

    All children deserve the best start in life, ensuring they can grow and develop in the healthiest way possible. New research reveals two thirds (67%) of baby and toddler foods in NZ & Australian supermarkets fail to meet 7 nutrition recommendations set by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) European office.

     

    Foods for toddlers performed worst, with a shocking 9 in 10 toddler foods failing nutrition recommendations.

     

    Iodine deficiency is the main cause of brain damage in childhood. It results in impaired cognitive development & motor development. NZ & Australian soil is depleted in this essential mineral due to modern farming practices.

     

    The baby food category is dominated by highly processed nutrient-devoid purées and toddler snacks, with more than half the purées sold in the supermarkets containing 16g of sugar (four teaspoons) in a single serve.

     

    Products are dressed up as from whole foods with nutritional benefits - the category is awash with misinformation. Convenient food options that deliver the nutritional needs of babies and young children, while meeting the expectations of parents who are looking for quality, whole food experiences for their families, are sorely lacking.

    Our Why

     

    Our purpose is to decrease diet-related diseases by enriching families lives through nutrient-dense whole foods.

     

    Our Products

     

    The current NORISH range includes four puree sachets. Designed as first foods for babies, these provide a wholesome meal and are a healthy solution to instant baby food. Simply add water to the puree powder and you have all the benefits of mother nature’s gifts ready within minutes.

     

     

    We know that nourishing your family is an ongoing labour of love, which is why we have developed the NORISH cans. This range combines the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet to boost family meals and smoothies. These are designed to nourish babies but are so tasty and nutritious, the whole family will love them.

     

     

    NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

    New products to be launched in FY23.

     

    The plant-based space is another emerging opportunity in baby food, due to the rise of flexitarian consumers in Western markets. Millennials, the consumer segment that represents the bulk of new parents, are also the generation that consume plant-based dairy more regularly. And considering that nearly 40% of consumers choose these alternatives “to feel healthier”, the habit is likely to be passed on to their offspring. New Category Introductions in FY24 Toddler supplements & ready meals.

    Risk Mitigation

     

    Quality Control - High Risk

    Baby food is a highly sensitive category and recalls make headlines. We have strict quality assurance processes in place that ensure all of our ingredients are purchased from approved suppliers and tested for safety before they are delivered. We manufacture our finished goods at MPI certified sites to ensure all of our products are manufactured to the highest standards of safety and quality. We also work closely with external consultants in regards to product formulations and label claims.

     

    Working Capital - High Risk

    Working capital is key to our ability to grow globally and achieve momentum and size. This capital raise will provide sufficient cash to execute growth initiatives without creating undue additional pressure on working capital allocated to other parts of the business.

     

    Finance - Medium Risk

    Our Finance team monitor working capital on a daily basis and provide weekly reporting to the executive management team.

     

    Economic Downturn - Medium Risk

    Our high end consumers will always have money to spend on their child making our niche less susceptible to the current downturn. Our direct to consumer e-commerce model allows us to sell cross-border to consumers all around the globe, minimising the risk of an economic downturn in a single country severely impacting our cash flow. With the rise of cross-border online shopping, D2C business models are one of the safest ways to ensure business continuity. To drive customer retention we will be investing in leading edge technology focused on the customer experience and analysts which will allow us to maintain a nimble fixed cost structure built for scale should we be impacted by any economic downturns in the future.

     

    Competition - Medium Risk

    Competition in the category is to be expected however the multinational nature of the category, our high end customer and selling model means we can focus on delivering our proposition. With Gina leading our exciting NPD programme we will be constantly innovating and diversifying our product offering to stay ahead of our competitors. To further mitigate the risk of competitive intensity, we will continue to focus on product quality, sustainability, transparency, social responsibility and superior customer service to drive brand loyalty. Our design-led approach to product innovation will ensure that what we bring to market will add the value to families lives.

     

    Manufacture & Supply - Low Risk

    Our freeze-dried technology means we can forecast & stock build ingredients in season & retain a minimum 2 year shelf life to ensure seasonal produce at the best prices. We conduct demand planning monthly for all of the products in our supplement and skincare ranges. We have rolling forecasts that look up to 18 months in advance and work closely with our suppliers and manufacturers to ensure they are aware of our upcoming demand.

     

    Strategic Implementation - Low Risk

    We have successfully managed our business to date with limited funds sourced primarily from cash flow and an initial raise. With this additional capital raise, we will be able to launch into export markets that require significant financial investment. We have an established Advisory Board and work with market-leading external agencies to help us achieve our strategies. R

     

    Recruit & Retain - Low Risk

    As a small company, the departure of a senior member of our team could impact our ability to execute upon our strategic plan. We have key person insurance for Gina in place. NORISH will develop as a most preferred employer true to its character of knowledgeable, capable and caring with a commitment to the Living Wage, paying market level (or above) remuneration,offering preferential and flexible working hours, an employee discount scheme, We maintain a values-led culture and have an appealing brand story.

    We made it! Only $300k left.

    15/11/2023 at 2:07 PM

    We are so grateful & to be honest quite emotional about the support that has come our way in the past month. This equity crowdfunding capital raise really cements the community & purpose behind Norish & we couldn’t be more proud.

     

    The comments rolling through on PledgeMe are so beautiful & heartfelt.

     

    Because of the large investor coming in, we’ve reduced our maximum goal on PledgeMe to $700,000. This means there’s only $300k worth of shares left for our community to purchase.

     

    Huge thanks to all 173 of you who have invested in us. Thank you for the support & we are thrilled to have you on this journey with us.

     

    Gina & the Norish team

    Over $230k pledged! 3 days to go.

    13/11/2023 at 3:13 PM

    We’re celebrating a lot of things this week - the biggest is us cracking the $200,000 pledged mark! With 100 pledgers we’re now sitting at $233,150, which means we are now 67% funded, with 3 days to go. Thank you to everyone who has pledged.

     

    The team at PledgeMe tell me that there’s this thing called deadline magic - where most of the pledges come in the final few days as people do what people do - sneak in just before the deadline. Please, if you want to relieve some of my stress and haven't already- pledge now :) Here’s the link again: https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/investments/557-norish-limited.  The campaign is closing at 7pm on Thursday, 16 November.

     

    We’re also celebrating the fact that we’re preparing to roll out in New World. Currently we’re in retail 35 stores - and getting into New World would really push up our sales & brand exposure.

     

    We have big ambitions to grow - because we want to grow our impact but also because we want to grow our return for shareholders. We want to follow in the footsteps of founders like Brianne West, who grew Ethique with the support of her crowd and provided a 48-times return to her earliest crowdfunding investors.

     

    Thanks for all your support with this campaign, we can’t wait to welcome you into the Norish family.

     

    Gina

    So much interest our product SOLD OUT!

    31/10/2023 at 11:20 AM

    To our beautiful Norish friends & fans,

     

    Between awards & equity there has been a lot of visits to our website!

     

    We are so humbled by your support over the last two weeks - for the second year in a row NORISH has won the children's health category for Best of Natural Awards & there are now 77 of you who have pledged over $156,000 towards our goal of $350,000 for our equity crowdfunding!

     

    Not only have we had people showing their support and interest by investing - we’ve also had people showing their interest in our mission by buying our products. So many in fact, we ran out! We’re working hard to restock our range, but we think this shows the interest in feeding our babies better is growing.

     

    We’ve also had some interesting approaches the last two weeks from potential distributors - which has led to some early and exciting conversations. Again, it’s clear to us that there are ways we can grow Norish into new markets, and now distributors are coming to us!

     

    Thanks again for all your support - all your pledges, comments, shares and kind words mean the world!

     

    Please keep sharing our purpose-led brand with those you think might be interested in investing. We are very excited for this next chapter.

     

    Warm regards, Gina & the Norish team.

    One week in and almost halfway!

    25/10/2023 at 8:49 PM

    Thanks so much for investing in us. It means the world to us, and our plans. Watching you all pledging in those first few hours and days has been such an amazing validation of what we have achieved so far and what we want to do - thank you. 

     

    In order to get to our goal, we need to make a bit of noise about this campaign. Can you help us?

     

    1. Could you share our campaign through social media, and share why you’ve supported us?

    2. Could you forward our IM and campaign page to five people that you think might be interested?

     

    We are also hosting an Instagram Live tomorrow night (Thursday, 26 October) at 8pm. Just head over to our instagram page (@gina.urlich) then, and you’ll be able to watch our pitch - and ask me questions. I’ll have Anna from PledgeMe there as well to answer any questions you might have about equity crowdfunding.

     

    Thank you for your unwavering support, and we look forward to having you as a vital part of our growing family.

     

    Warm regards,

    Gina & the Norish team.

      Hi, new to PledgeMe so I apologise for the silly question. Do investors who pledge have the responsibility to put in more money (based on their investment) if the company goes into trouble, as shareholders/directors in other companies do? Thank you

      Answered on 14-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


      Thanks Gina, so nothing contracted in yet for Australia? As for the FY26 financials, is that taking the planned Asian expansion into account? Moving from less than $400k to $9m+ in revenue in 3 years is a substantial estimation. Are there Asia-based (China/Japan) distributors in place already?
      Can you please also advise if there was any Independent advice given for this pre-money valuation? I note on page 48 that this was provided to you by your board and validated by your accountant and that you have accountants on your board (pg13)? Thanks, hoping to invest but need a couple of crucial gaps in the IM filled first please.
      Regards, Si

      Posted on 09-11-2023 by Simon

      Hi Simon,
      We appreciate the thoroughness of your inquiry.

      Currently, we've adopted a per capita & market size strategy based on our traction in NZ and our expansion into new export markets. While we've formed relationships with distribution channels, formal contracts are still pending. After the campaign's conclusion on Wednesday, we plan to advance our strategy and finalise contracts.

      In terms of valuation, we've engaged in discussions with formal valuation companies. However, given stage of the business and cost of an independent valuation, we decided not to complete a formal valuations at this point. Our current valuation is based on a hybrid of financial performance (current sales x future expected EBITDA performance) as well as intangible assets and value. We have two accountants on our advisory board who bring a wealth of FMCG experience.

      We look forward to having you join our crowdfunding campaign.

      Kindest regards, Gina

      Answered on 14-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


      Can you please offer a breakdown of where this substantial increase in revenue is being generated offshore? Ie, are there distribution contracts in place already prior to your launch into Australia/Asia? I note that you have already been selling into Australia since inception, so would like to understand more around how sales will ramp up there. I understand you've offered a 'Per Capita' estimation here, however in my experience in is very difficult to assume an 'apples for apples' approach when factoring in export markets. Thank you in advance

      Posted on 30-10-2023 by Simon

      Hello Simon, you're absolutely right. Norish has been shipping to the Australian market from the very beginning, and our sales there have grown organically without any specific marketing efforts. We are having wholesale opportunities from Australia come to us & regular requests online for Norish to be available in AU. We've made sales forecasts based on per capita estimations and have built robust relationships with two of our existing wholesale partners in New Zealand, which we intend to extend into the Australian market. We acknowledge that the Australian market is not an exact replica of our current situation in New Zealand, and our entry into these new markets is a carefully strategised endeavour.
      Regards, Gina

      What was the actual pre-money valuation amount for the 2022 capital raise?

      Posted on 26-10-2023 by Cristian

      Hi Cristian, the pre-money valuation in 2022 is a private agreement between the shareholders. It was at a slightly lower valuation reflected in earlier traction as well as bringing on an experienced advisory board. Thanks

      Answered on 05-11-2023 by Gina Urlich


      What was the pre-money valuation of your last year's capital raise and how much did you raise?
      When did Norish get the $25k from the Ministry of Awesome and was it a loan or an equity investment?

      Posted on 20-10-2023 by Cristian

      Hi Cristian,

      Our early investment round was at a lower valuation as we were earlier in our traction, and wanting to get our advisors on board.

      The Ministry of Awesome prize was a SAFE which converted as part of this round to shares. You can see that in our capitalisation table in the IM.
      Thanks for your questions.

      Answered on 25-10-2023 by Gina Urlich


      1. could you please confirm my reading of the financial summary table on the web page ("Details").
      [Revenue- Operating Expenses] doesn't equal EBITDA which needs explanation. This is because the table doesn't include Cost of Goods Sold (ref p52 of the IM)? Confirm?
      2. Assuming that's the case is there a reason the gross profit improves to 60% cause that seems like good progress?
      3. Finally p54 "Overhead assumptions" - is there a missing sentence at the end of that section?
      thanks

      Posted on 19-10-2023 by Josh Forde

      Hi Josh, thanks for the questions.
      Q1: Confirming the table on the PledgeMe Website is high-level financial information and it does not include COGS. That level of detail is available in the IM on page 52 as you’ve noted.
      Q2: YTD actual GP % sitting at 56.5% so an increase of 3.5% which is due to “new” stock being sold with lower production costs due to larger production runs and therefore hitting price breaks in terms of minimum order quantities. The slight decline of GP within FY25 and FY26 is due to the mix of e-commerce sales and wholesale sales assumptions changing, with an increased play in wholesale.
      Q3: Originally there was a table of our internal resource onboarding strategy, so the last sentence is a little out of context. We are happy to talk to our internal resource onboarding strategy with you however.

      Warning statement about equity crowdfunding

      Equity crowdfunding is risky.

      Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of business is very speculative and carries high risks.

      You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.

      New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision.

      The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using this facility. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.

      Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.
