Kumi's Ignite Story 

Kumi Bradshaw is the co-founder of Honest Greens Bermuda and a past Ignite participant. Ignite is an Argus-sponsored programme centered around accelerating entrepreneurial growth, fostering innovation and community partnership. “Ignite has provided me with the opportunity to connect with and develop relationships with entrepreneurs and other local businesses who are looking to add value to Bermuda,” Kumi notes. Dedication to nutrition and the environment is the foundation on which the business was built.

Kumi is excited about the positive impact the business can make after participating in the Ignite programme. “The Ignite experience has helped guide my thought process around growing and scaling the business. The tools Ignite participants are handed spark innovation, planning and push entrepreneurs towards their goals. The relationships are invaluable.” He adds that Ignite has assisted in spreading awareness about the company goals and services in the community. Kumi is hopeful that it will encourage people to understand that good nutrition is key to improved long-term health and quality of life.

 

Why Honest Greens Bermuda?

We know that preventative care and good nutrition are key to wellness. Adding vegetables to a diet can have significant positive impacts on a person’s health, like reducing certain types of cancers and reducing the risk of heart disease. The Government of Bermuda recommends around five servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

For Honest Greens Bermuda, the priority lies in the public understanding of nutrition and the long-term health effects of poor nutritional habits. The solution? Eat more fresh greens. “Our produce is delivered fresh to your door within 24 hours of harvest,” he says.

Food security is another important issue Honest Greens Bermuda is addressing with their produce. Importing salad greens with reduced nutrient density, coupled with the jump in food miles required to get them to Bermuda has both financial and environmental costs to individuals and our community as a whole. Honest Greens Bermuda provides cleaner, safer options that are local and organic. As an added bonus, packaging goes back with the driver, creating a greener business plan with minimal waste.

The shared understanding of the benefits of eating healthy fresh, locally grown, organic produce is what drove the partnership between Argus and Honest Greens Bermuda.
