Their goal was clear: expand B2B sales to food manufacturers and wholesalers in Europe. However, rising inflation and a cost of living crisis presented significant hurdles, as potential clients became hesitant to engage with new suppliers, especially in an industry witnessing a downturn in organic product sales.
