New Zealand based Behemoth Brewing takes time off Trump bashing to raise $3.5m for a new brewery and restaurant

Auckland, New Zealand, 2019-Jun-09 — /EPR Network/ — Behemoth Brewing, the New Zealand craft brewer whom last year took a jab at Donald Trump with their cheekily named “Dump the Trump IPA”, have launched an investment campaign in New Zealand.

The campaign is looking to raise $3.5m (New Zealand Dollars) to help fund a new brewery and restaurant in New Zealand’s biggest city, Auckland.

Behemoth came to global prominence last year when it brewed the afore mentioned Dump the Trump, an American style IPA. It followed this beer up with another brew designed to rile the US President, a peach sour called Im-Peach-ment.

When Behemoth brewed the latest batch of Dump the Trump in May 2018, it managed to get them trolled by US right-wing internet warriors. The Behemoth facebook page received hundreds of bad reviews and comments within a few hours.

The trolling made News headlines in New Zealand and soon after the New Zealand public rose to the defence of Behemoth, pushed the average review score back up and gave the hardliners a taste of the Kiwi sense of humour with some classic parochial responses to the nasty comments.

Ironically the publicity that the Trump-o-philes inadvertently created proved a catalyst for growth for the Behemoth beers. In the last year, their revenues grew by 136%, and they now export to 11 countries over the world.

The investment campaign which is currently live is open to qualified overseas investors and runs alongside a New Zealand only equity crowdfunding campaign. Since they went live on Thursday afternoon, the campaigns have already raised more than $800k in investment, halfway to the minimum amount required to close the combined offers.

Andrew Childs, Founder of Behemoth, said “The campaigns are going along well. We have had several qualified investors put in significant amounts so far, including one investor putting in $100k. We have some big plans for the future and are looking forward to welcoming new shareholders on our beery adventures. It would be great if we could get a few significant overseas investors, especially given we are now exporting all over the world.”

The campaign will run for the next month, or until fully subscribed. Qualified overseas investors can follow this link to find out more information and download the Information Memorandum:

Global Convergence of Tea & Coffee Industry To Take Place at Mumbai in November 2019

* Bombay Exhibition Centre to host the 7th World Tea Coffee Expo from 21 – 23 Nov 2019. * South Asia’s largest B2B event for the hot beverage sector.

Mumbai, India, May 9th, 2019 — With India becoming a global hub for the tea, coffee and allied sectors – both as a consumer and as a producer – the 7th edition of World Tea Coffee Expo at Bombay Exhibition Centre from 21 – 23 Nov 2019 is set to offer an unparalleled networking opportunity for serious industry players to meet and undertake business as also to understand and determine future trends.

The Global RTD (Ready-to-Drink) Tea & Coffee market is continuing to expand and likely to grow at approx 9% through 2022 with major contribution coming from rapidly expanding organized retail chains offering variety of products in innovative and user-friendly packaging. South Asia has seen a considerable upsurge in production, investment in modernization and upgradation of facilities and overall consumption backed by attractive branding/packaging and easy access due to mushrooming of ecommerce portals.

With 90+ exhibitors from 8 countries including government pavilions and 4000+ trade visitors, WTCE 2019 will showcase innovative Tea and coffee products/brands, machineries, equipment, packaging, technologies, vending solutions, sugar/sweeteners, biscuits & cookies, flavours, Retail Chains, certifications, Premixes, government boards etc. South Asia’s largest dedicated annual gathering for this industry, WTCE enables mega-deals by identifying market trends, global drivers, challenges, constraints, threats and investment opportunities of the RTD Tea Coffee market and creates awareness on market penetration strategies – both local and global. The Trade show is accompanied by a 2-day high level conference and workshops on last day.

In recent times, a host of regional players have initiated national expansion strategies which are supplemented by networking events like WTCE enabling them to find bulk buyers, appoint distributors & agents and create overall branding with smaller marketing budgets. Such players are from Assam, Siliguri, North East, Himachal Pradesh, Nilgiris etc. For small farmers, estates WTCE offers a perfect platform to sit neck to neck with larger players and network with same business associates. International companies have found WTCE as the definite platform for penetrating or expanding their activities across India. WTCE offers huge potential for appointing Distributors, Bulk orders, joint ventures, franchising, networking, knowledge-sharing, meeting government officials, marketing alliances and overall branding to decision makers from India and abroad.

The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing market for RTD Tea Coffee and is also witnessing maximum geographical outreach. The Indian tea and coffee market is one of the largest in world in terms of production, consumption and growth prospects. However, future success depends largely on use of latest technology, seamless upgradation of existing facilities, adapting to ecommerce and cost effective processing – something WTCE strives for.

Yeast of Eden’s Grand Opening on January 17th to Benefit Monterey County Food Bank

Yeast of Eden, the newly renovated restaurant & brewery that occupies the south end of the Carmel Plaza is announcing its grand opening on Thursday, January 17th.

Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, January 14, 2019 – Yeast of Eden, the newly renovated restaurant & brewery that occupies the south end of the Carmel Plaza is announcing its grand opening on Thursday, January 17th. After opening quietly last month, the hip, contemporary designed 120 seat restaurant (plus40 outdoor patio seats) is partnering with the Monterey County Food Bank by donating 100% of the proceeds from the evening’s sales.

“It’s a priority for us to align with a local, charitable cause in conjunction with announcing our opening to the community,” said J.C. Hill, Co-Owner. “We’re here not only as a community gathering place, but as a community partner,” he said. Hill and his father, John, are also the owners of Alvarado Street Brewery in Monterey and Salinas. It was a “no brainer” for them to align with the Monterey County Food Bank, as the holiday season tends to place a strain on the organization’s resources as they head into the new year.

Yeast of Eden began as a side project of Alvarado Street Brewery starting in 2015, as Hill and (now) Head Brewer Andrew Rose were barrel aging beers with some of Rose’s experimental “mixed” cultures. “Mixed fermentation just refers to the variety of organisms used to metabolize sugars produced during the brewing process,” said Rose. “Our cultures contain multiple varieties of brewer’s yeast, but also native yeasts & lactic acid producing microflora, creating a sense of terroir in each of our beers.”

A common thread among all the Yeast of Eden beers is a crisp, dry profile that sets the stage for fruit forward, fermentation-derived flavors and assertive effervescence that creates an almost champagne-like finish. Each has a varying level of acidity, almost to the same degree as wine, which presented a food pairing opportunity that Hill was eager to pursue.

“We wanted bright, bold flavors to align with the soft acidity and layered flavors of Andrew’s beers. Sweet, spicy, savory & umami – combined with the beer, we wanted your entire palate to dance over the course the meal,” said Hill. The result was a global, street food-inspired menu with Southeast Asian & Latin American influence. Hill says he was lucky enough to bring on Chef Stephen Paulson, formerly of Ba Bar & Elysian Fields in Seattle, to curate a menu specifically designed to pair with mixed fermentation beers.

Some of the quickly adopted fan favorites in their short four weeks of existence are the crispy battered Saigon wings tossed in a spicy fish sauce caramel, as well as the miso creamed kale that features a mix of foraged & domestic mushrooms. The menu offers street tacos with hand made corn tortillas for both lunch and dinner, but also offers a range of share plates and large entrees. Customers so far have been emphatic about the Red Curry Duck, which is hot smoked & dry aged Peking duck breast served in a spicy red curry sauce with grilled pineapple. Burger lovers will find satisfaction in their kobe grind “Publican” burger with rosemary & sage frites.

Beyond the 26 beer taps and eclectic eats, Yeast of Eden offers a full bar where Assistant General Manager Adam Ono is slowly building out a promising cocktail program, and one that will eventually feature four on draft. Ono, formerly of Future Bars (SF), 1833, and most recently California Market at Pacific’s Edge, has created several promising libations already. “Thou Mayest” is another Steinbeck reference and an egg white cocktail with rye, Campari, fernet branca, amaro & lime.

Yeast of Eden is currently open from 11 am until 10 pm (kitchen until 9 pm), but after their Grand Opening on the 17th,hours will change. The restaurant brewery will be open from 11:30 am to 10 pm, Sunday through Wednesday, with kitchen hours extended until 11 pm Thursday through Saturday. The bar will stay open until midnight on those days. Reservations and more information is available online at yoebeer.com.

Mi Rancho® Celebrates 80 Years of Pure Tortilla Joy

Third-Generation, Family-owned Tortilla Manufacturer Celebrates Eight Decades of Success Delivering High-Quality Tortilla Products for Customers Across the United States.

San Leandro, CA, USA — Mi Rancho® (http://www.mirancho.com), the Bay Area innovator in the production and global distribution of premium tortillas and Mexican foods, is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2019. The family-owned tortilla company was started in 1939 in the back of an Oakland grocery store. In 1954, Robert Berber, Sr., and Robert Berber Jr., purchased the store and began to focus on making tortillas using traditional methods. Today, the third and fourth generation of Berbers continue to operate Mi Rancho, continuing to expand and prepare the company for continued success and growth.

After 80 years, Mi Rancho is producing more tortillas than ever and shipping a variety of organic, non-GMO and simply authentic flour and corn tortillas worldwide. Even though the company is producing more tortillas, the Berber family remains committed to age-old tortilla-making techniques and a philosophy of farm-to-table food production. Mi Rancho uses non-GMO, California-grown whole grain corn that is cooked, steeped, washed, and ground using an ancient Aztec process called nixtamalization. Mi Rancho continues to use traditional production methods such as nixtamalization to enhance the flavor and preserve the authenticity of its tortillas. For example, the corn masa is created by grinding the corn using hand-carved lava stones, just as tortillas have been produced for centuries. The company prides itself on their ability to combine old world authenticity and new world innovation to produce the premium and great tasting tortillas with efficiency, consistency and quality you can rely on.

While Mi Rancho continues to create tortillas in the time-honored way, the company also embraces innovation. Mi Rancho continues to work with retailers, restauranteurs, and industrial customers to meet their needs, and the evolving tastes of their customers. Mi Rancho also has an expanding research and development department that develops new products and works with new ingredients.

Mi Rancho has more than doubled in size over the past decade as they continue to cultivate new segments. After many years producing consistent, premium tortillas to discerning chefs, restaurants, and service outlets, Mi Rancho decided to expand further and make the same high-quality tortillas available to consumers in 2010. Today, Mi Rancho tortillas are stocked on grocery shelves across the United States. To keep up with the growing demand for Mi Rancho products, the company added a second manufacturing facility in Elk Grove, California, in 2018.

“We have seen Mi Rancho flourish since my grandfather started making tortillas on Seventh Street in Oakland. But no matter how we grow, we know that our success is rooted in our commitment to quality ingredients and traditional production methods to deliver a quality product,” said Manuel Berber, President of Mi Rancho. “Everyone who works for us is part of the Mi Rancho family so we all take personal pride in the company and its tortilla products.”

Manuel Berber has served as president of the company since 1992 and is the third generation to manage Mi Rancho. He is grooming his sons, Andrew and Alex, to take over as the fourth generation. Andrew Berber is currently working as Director of Business Development and Alex Berber is serving as Director of Foodservice Sales.

“We are extremely proud that Mi Rancho is celebrating 80 years of success as a family-owned company,” said Manuel Berber. “We have ambitious plans for the future, and I am confident that Andrew and Alex will continue the family tradition and our commitment to excellence for another 80 years.

Mi Rancho is already implementing plans for the next stage in the company’s growth. Over the next five years the company plans to build on its legacy of success with the introduction of new products and expansion into new markets.

Mi Rancho® Introduces Organic THINcredibles™ Corn Tortillas – All the Freshness and Flavor with Half the Calories, Twice the Joy

Mama Carol’s THINcredibles latest addition to Mi Rancho’s line of organic corn tortillas.

San Leandro, CA, USA — Mi Rancho® (http://www.mirancho.com), a Bay Area food innovator in the production and global distribution of tortillas and Mexican foods, introduced a new low-calorie corn tortilla product, Mama Carol’s THINcredibles™. These organic tortillas are thinner than Mi Rancho’s flagship organic corn tortillas with half the calories and are available through select retail grocery stores.

THINcredibles are made using the same traditional methods as all Mi Rancho tortillas using whole kernel corn cooked with lime which is ground into fresh masa with hand-carved lava stones. What makes THINcredibles different is they are thinner, so each tortilla has only 35 calories, while still offering the supple freshness, performance, and flavor that distinguish all Mi Rancho tortillas.

THINcredibles also are the first tortillas in a new line of Mama Carol products, named for Carol Berber of the Berber family which has owned and operated Mi Rancho since 1954. Carol has been developing new recipes featuring unique ways of incorporating tortillas. The recipes are available in a series of videos, Mama Carol’s Mi Rancho Kitchen, which can be viewed on the Mi Rancho website and YouTube.

“We developed THINcredibles for weight-conscious customers who are interested in healthier eating,” said Carol Berber. “These thinner tortillas are made using the same family recipe and attention to quality as all our products, but with half the calories. They are great for tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, homemade chips and strips, and all the dishes you would make using regular corn tortillas, only with fewer calories.”

Like Mi Rancho’s other organic corn tortillas, THINcredibles are certified organic by the USDA and have been verified by the Non-GMO Project. They are gluten free and contain no saturated or trans fats.

THINcredibles will initially be offered in select retail outlets, including Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill, Bristol Farms, Gelson’s Markets, Lunardi’s, Mollie Stone’s, and Oliver’s Market. Additional retailers will be added in the coming months.

About Mi Rancho
Mi Rancho® is an innovator in the specialty foods market specializing in tortillas and Mexican food products. Founded as a family-run Mexican bakery and grocery store in Oakland in 1939, Mi Rancho started to expand in the 1950s, providing tortillas to local restaurants. Today the company remains family owned and operated by the third generation of the Berber family, with plans of succession to the fourth generation currently working within the company. Mi Rancho produces 4.5 million tortillas each day or 1.3 billion tortillas each year, serving various segments including foodservice, retail, industrial, and international. Despite Mi Rancho’s growth, the company is still operated with a passion for excellence and a commitment to produce the best quality tortillas made from local California ingredients.

The ingredients used in producing these preservatives are sourced from fresh fruits and sealed adequately into clear cans which will be used by different producers to ensure the preservation of their products and keep it in good shape for the consumption of their clients. Use of these packaging materials will help producers to maintain their stronghold on the market and promote their brand image.
