The Elcott’s smoothie story

 

Here is a brief summary/history of what we do and not our full history. That’s a whole other post on it’s own but this is just what we do. Our goal and motivation.

We started off with an idea to make people healthier and athletes faster or recover better with nutritious smoothies that were packed with vitamins, anti-oxidants and great flavour . I just wanted to provide a healthy drink and start a kind of awareness sort of thing by providing delicious and healthy smoothies.I had a hard time finding smoothies that tasted good and were healthy, so I decided to take a go with the market and boom it was a hit.

We then hit up plenty of exhibitions and that was also a blast and a success. We loved the energy that were available at those events, the acceptance of our new products ( not everyone took kindly to the green smoothies though ) and the overall great experiences we shared.

We then decide to branch it into food and start preparing meals. This was our real breakthrough. There are no vegan restaurants in Bahrain and the vegan, healthy options were very limited. So we decided to hit the market with that. It was very risky but the rewards were worth it.

At some point we had to limit our orders because we couldn’t catch up with the lunches. We then hired a driver to help us deliver the food because we couldn’t manage the volume all on our own.

We now have a weekly set menu lunch that could be delivered to your office or home. We have smoothie bundles that are fantastically delicious and are a big hit ( Th e green bundle,  the berry bundle, the winter and summer bundle )

Our my main aim to provide healthy food made available to all people and not just to the elite. Healthy food has had a bad reputation of being expensive and elitist. We are here to change that and provide affordable delicious packages that everyone can afford. We thrive on our goal and also aim to improve our services.

Our food is a 100% plant based, naturally low fat, low salt and mainly oil free. We use the best produce and products we can get our hands on. We offer organic when possible, gluten free and white rice alternatives. Our profits are razor thin and just enough to keep us afloat. We want to be a positive and an affordable part of the health movement.

The people who run the business are:

This is the person handling the food, our self proclaimed chef that makes the best plant based foods I have had the pleasure of eating. She’s meticulous, efficient and always exploring  new amazing recipes.

And then there’s me! Your smoothie maker! The person you talk too when you need something, your representative.

This business is what part of why we wake up in the morning and start prepping. We are here to put a positive dent into Bahrain’s food market.  A healthy dent. And this business also puts food in our table. We are no huge corporation, no whole foods. We are just a family of 3 with a goal to make this beautiful island a healthier and more fruitful place.
