Chi, the Founder of Purpose Purple Tea, started her business because she had a vision for a purpose led, social enterprise that empowered women. Having researched local growers in Africa, and discovering purple tea there, she launched her RTD tea brand in 2018 with a goal to donate 5% of gross profits to support the mission. And, like so many, she found her way and learned the industry without connections or a support network. She says, “when I found DFW CPG, it’s been enormously helpful to me. I have met distributors, suppliers, advisors, and investors through this network – and I hired a Sales Director whom I met at a DFW CPG event.” Today, in addition to growing her business, Chi is an Ambassador for DFW CPG providing helpful insights on how we can help emerging brands, and to help foster and build connections for the local CPG community.
DFW CPG always adds value to my day when I engage with them from a virtual happy hour or speaker, to networking and referrals. I owe a great deal of my brand’s growth over the past 12 months to DFW CPG as they have introduced me to the SKU accelerator program and have connected me with key players that support All Y’alls Foods. I am grateful for DFW CPG and as a CPG founder in the DFW area, it only makes sense to be a part of it.
