Okay prepare yourself for a serious flashback because these photos are from waaaay back!
Jeanne (AlgaeCal Co Founder) actually dug these up and shared them with our team last week. Serious laughs were had, but all in all, I think they’re a great reminder of how far we’ve come on this journey: to naturally rid the world of osteoporosis. And I thought, why not share these moments with our amazing customers!
We do a lot of research pieces, mixed with recipes and exercise posts tailored toward bone health. But today I want to change it up and shift our sights towards familiarising you with the Algaecal family.
Here’s Jeanne with me at Supplyside West Las Vegas 2005, a big trade show where suppliers and buyers of dietary supplements, food and beverage meet every year. We were there for the exciting launch of AlgaeCal plant calcium.
And here I am, standing in front of the same big sign decorated with our old logo (do you still recognise it?)
It’s hard to imagine now, but back then we were just getting started on this journey. Excuse my baggy pants. The styles were different back then haha.
Don’t worry, I got rid of that shirt! Im with Dr Gilbert Kaats Ph.D here (Chairman and CEO of Integrative Health Technologies, Inc)
And above is a picture of me on a very old model plane, flying to Farmington, NM to see Morningstar Minerals to test Algaecal in a liquid formula with purified water. We went with the powder in the end.
Here’s Jeanne working her butt off and taking photos of our old samples! This was back in 2005 and she still works just as hard today. Come to think of it, we still have those old sample bottles somewhere in the back of our Yaletown office (it’s hard to let go of the memories).
I love sharing some of Algaecal’s earlier history with you guys. I hope it will give you a sense of who we are as a company. We’re the real deal: a team of caring down-to-earth people who just want more people to know that we’re here fighting for their health.
I hope you’ve had a few chuckles with these throwback snaps. Please feel free to share your Algaecal story with us in the comments below! When did you start your Algaecal journey?
