What an amazing year! It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly December.
There is no question that the holiday season is upon us. As much as I love decking the halls, Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. Thanksgiving is the time that I stop and reflect on all the blessings in my life. Those blessings are always about the people that I’ve been fortunate enough to meet along this journey called life.
This year, there are so many new people to add to my list to be thankful for. For starters I’d like to thank all of the people that worked so hard on the issue of mandatory labeling of products that contain GMOs. All those who gave of their time and donated their hard earned money for the common good and benefit of every American and future generations. To be fortunate enough to have been involved in this cause in the early days and watching the momentum grow year after year, to a near victory in California, is something I will never forget. I truly believe, more so now than ever, that it is only a matter of time until labeling of products that contain GMOs becomes law.
I would also like to thank the entire team at Berlin Natural Bakery for everything they do every day. You are my heroes and as our testimonials state, you are heroes to all those that purchase the outstanding products that your hands create. I’ve owned and operated many different businesses and employed thousands of people over the last 35 years. The team at Berlin Natural Bakery is the absolute best I’ve worked with. Their commitment and dedication to producing products that are not easy to produce is truly remarkable.
Last but not least, I would like to thank YOU, our incredibly loyal customers. You are amazing! I cannot tell you how often I go into a store meeting and hear the words “you have the most loyal customers we’ve ever seen.” As surprising that this is to the retailers, it is not surprising to me. I’ve been reading letters and emails for many, many years from literally thousands of people, expressing gratitude for producing products that have literally changed their lives. What a blessing it is to know that what we do increases the quality of the lives of those we serve. Thank you for sharing your stories and thank you for your ongoing support of our products. Every time you purchase a Berlin Natural Bakery product, you are casting a vote in favor of a small business, heirloom grains, small batch baking, freshly stone ground flour and Non-GMO Project Verified products. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
May you and your family have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
Peace & Blessings,
