New stretch target

The extra funding will allow Tropical Additions to increase production and efficiency. If we can reach £10,000 we will be able to start approaching cafes and restaurants in the hope they will want to use and stock Tropical Additions. Please help us get our superfood blends into premises near you!


TROPICAL ADDITIONS

Tropical Additions was founded in January 2020 with the aim to inject colour, nutrition and creativity into the kitchen using natural superfood powders. Since then, we have worked closely with a nutritionist experimenting with a variety of tropical superfoods to develop five vibrant blends targeting different health angles. 

THE BLENDS

HOW TO USE TROPICAL ADDITIONS

From our energising 'Flower Power' blend to our 'Glow Getter' beauty blend, each one contains carefully chosen superfood powders that can be easily added to at-home recipes to create unicorn-inspired smoothies, mermaid lattes, rainbow-coloured noodles, tasty treats and nice-cream. By incorporating naturally pigmented ingredients such as the Blue Spirulina, Pink Pitaya and Turmeric, our products are the ultimate way to create healthy and natural Instagram-worthy foods.

CHANGING ATTITUDES 

During the development stage of Tropical Additions, COVID-19 hit the world hard, with devastating impacts being felt across communities, including the tragic loss of life and economic disruption. Forcing people around the world to change the way they live their lives, more time was being spent at home, only leaving the house for essential reasons. The pandemic is also said to have changed consumer buying habits with many of us now turning to healthier diets, immune-boosting foods and plant-based products that promote health and wellbeing.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Gram for gram, Spirulina may be the single most nutritious food on the planet. (Healthline)
  • Pink Pitaya is full of antioxidants and phytonutrients, as well as its vitamin C (equivalent to 10% of the daily value), vitamin B properties that aid the digestive system, polyunsaturated fatty acids, carotene and protein. (Food Facts)
  • Moringa is often referred to as the miracle tree. It is believed to have many benefits and its uses range from health and beauty to helping prevent and cure diseases. (Medical News Today)
  • Turmeric is loaded with essential minerals, including magnesium, potassium and calcium. It's also an excellent source of fibre. (Food Facts)

WHAT WILL CROWDFUNDING HELP US ACHIEVE? 

We are looking for your support to help us launch our first range of vibrant superfood powders and sustain a new small business. The funding will allow us to set-up production, create the packaging, build a website, and distribute our products all over the UK. 


Tropical Additions will sell exclusively online to individual customers as well as cafes, coffee shops, and independent stores. The online platform will also share recipe ideas, nutritional information, news, stories and food inspiration.

OUR STORY

Tropical Additions brings together the talents of Hayley Newnham and Samantha Thomas. Sharing a passion for healthy living, Tropical Additions began one sunny morning in Sri Lanka. 

Sitting at our favourite cafe overlooking a popular surf break, we were enjoying ocean-inspired smoothie bowls, pink lattes and fresh juices. Having spent the early part of 2020 here, we quickly became accustomed to starting each day with a delicious breakfast packed with nutrients and colour thanks to the abundance of fresh fruit and superfood powders. 

After doing some research we noticed that there was a lack of similar products available in the UK - we identified a gap in the market. 

Brainstorming ideas, we decided that we wanted to inspire people to have more fun with recipes by using colourful and healthy foods. 

It was decided - Tropical Additions would inject a little piece of paradise into kitchens across the UK.
