We are so lucky to be headquartered in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, where we’re surrounded by other awesome companies that are doing GREAT things. They’re a constant source of inspiration so we thought we’d give a shout-out to some of our favorites.
We love local favorite Alpine Modern because their brand is all about passion. Their passion for modern design, mountain love, and architecture has created something truly unique and personal that could only happen in Boulder. Our passion is fish, but we are inspired just the same.
(Ok, so they’re from Denver, but 20 miles away counts, right?) Chipotle transformed how we eat and helped start the conversation nationally about food sourcing. We admire how they hold their ground on antibiotic free meats to make sure they live up to their own ethical standards. Plus, we eat lunch there almost every day… Yeah, Chiptopia! We’re hot!
Talk about changing the world; these guys have made a huge impact on the massive amounts of consumable trash we produce as a society. Why throw away tons of plastic plates and cups that will live in our landfills for the next few decades when we can use compostable disposables that get back to the soil in a couple of months? Real game changers.
Jackson’s Honest is a brand on a major mission to change the way people eat. And so are we. They do it with super delicious coconut oil and other “traditional fats” and we do it with frozen fish, but we look up to them as a local company that’s successfully driving their mission through great food.
We love Quinn because their snacks are so delicious! They are also focused on developing strong partnerships with their farmers, just like us. They help lead the way in showing that quality food simply tastes better.
These guys are the first to make a kombucha with an alcohol content in the same range as beer! In addition to pioneering new ground with healthy beverages and adult fun, we love their fantastic clean design complete with a mermaid tail on the label. Our favorite flavor is Wild Sour—from their own taproom of course.
The Shinesty team lives a wild, zero-fucks-given lifestyle that is every bit as over-the-top as the apparel they create. We love their MTV show which takes us inside the world of a Millennial business doing things 100% their own way AND making $ to boot.
As a company that sells bits and pieces of materials for making electronics, you’d think they aren’t really up our alley… BUT, we love how they use education as a cornerstone of their brand. We want to be as effective about aquaculture education as they are about breakout boards and filaments.
