    Building food brands is fun (and really hard).Though need to say that cross all of my work, the difficulty in economizing a successful food brands with the limitations and rigors of distribution has been the hardest.

    Really curious why is this allowed on Kickstarter – and not nearly identical products/offerings?This other project just 3 days ago was suspended after raising $37k CAD out of $73k CAD goal:…Instead I went directly to the website – https://frankiesfreerangeme… – they created and ordered the Pemmican and Jerky directly. I hope they deliver. There was no timeframe given – however I paid by Paypal, so I suppose it’s even more secure of a pledge/purchase than through Kickstarter which doesn’t even protect consumers with their 10% take.I’m glad now too Kickstarter won’t be getting a 10% cut of any of what others pledged.Shouldn’t this chilli peppers product be reported then too and suspended? They clearly already have the land, grew and have the product – not different at all from Frankie’s Free-Range Meat offering.I wonder what Kickstarter’s decision making process is – the specifics, and whether the number of people reporting is a cause – because then I could imagine the extremist vegans bombarding with reports.

    Gee, I was hoping they’d give it away, give it away, give it away now!
