Dear friends and raw food enthusiasts,
stress, success and love, three words that have been integral to my life this year. That's to say, both my personal and my working life, because – for me – both merge happily into one. In Lifefood we've completed a demanding reconstruction of our premises, we've received an award in a prestigious competition, we've put on the biggest raw-food festival in the world, we launched many new products, and many more people round the world have embarked on a raw-food diet. And – what makes me particularly happy – they like it! I'm so proud of everyone in the Lifefood team! Especially when I think how difficult it's been at times... But without the initial chaos and stress there wouldn't have been this beautiful result; stress is a natural mechanism that can activate other systems to get the best out of us. And without love for our work and belief in the good sense of what we're doing we'd lose sight of the light from the lighthouse half way through the journey.
And it's you who are that lighthouse, you for whom we've undertaken to deliver the very best products, to inspire you with our own story and to stand by you. Thank you for shining a light on our journey.
I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a confident start to New Year 2015. Let's not be afraid of chaos: if we face it with love, we'll draw out from it exactly the results we need.
I thank you and all my colleagues in Lifefood. Thanks for being you.
From my heart,
