Warehouse and Office in Barcelona

By opening a new office and logistic warehouse in Barcelona, Spain. MANA officially enters the Spanish market by interview for local national tv LaSexta.

Yesterday, we started shipping from our new warehouse in Barcelona and base on that the delivery time for Spanish customers will be much shorter. We are shipping within 24 hours after receiving your order.

Furthermore, we are building Spanish customer support and marketing strategy to serve local market just like we manage in Czech Republic and Germany. The shipping time depends on distance from Barcelona. But it’s usually within a days no more.

Thanks much for support,

Jakub, MANA

It’s Not the Diet, It’s the Lifestyle

We hear about healthy lifestyles, diets, exercise and relaxation everywhere. We are literally surrounded by it. At the same time, the world around us is rushing and we have to adapt our lives to it’s fast tempo. There is little time to do everything, so we try to make things easier. This often affects our health as a result of our relentless lifestyle. Do you want to know how to have a healthy lifestyle and avoid feeling guilty about not having enough time for yourself? Continue reading.

A healthy lifestyle that leads to a satisfied and healthy organism is not only about food. It is about exercise, quality sleep, optimism and the absence of addictive substances. We would like to change our habits but we give up rather quickly. Not everybody is patient, determined and strong-willed. The key is not to hurry. Start with little things. Even small steps can lead to you achieve big shifts.

Start anytime

It doesn’t matter what part of the year is. It could be New Years, bikini-season, Monday or Friday. You can start anytime. There is no reason to set up senseless goals or place high demands on yourself. It is important to set a realistic goal and work towards it slowly; your body has been accustomed to your “old” regime for a long time, so you need more time to get used to a new one.

Do not be afraid of changes in your diet.

Forget starvation and senseless diets! Balanced and nutritious food is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. This is what the body needs the most. What we eat is reflected in our health. But what can we do nowadays when food preparation takes our valuable time and eating fast food isn’t really a “healthy” choice? Don’t spend your time standing by the stove. With the modernization of time comes the modern art of nourishment – and the balanced liquid food MANA Drink embodies this philosophy.

MANA food contains all important nutrients without the ballast, without toxins, saturated fatty acids, cholesterol or cancerous substances. It is hard to believe, but this laboratory mixture represents a chance for global change in eating habits. It offers a way to get necessary nutrition in a simple, fast and affordable way,” says Jakub Krejčík, author of the MANA formula.

If you spend a great deal of your time on the go and don’t have much time to eat properly, MANA is an ideal choice for you. One 330 ml drink contains 400 kcal and thus covers 20% of your daily nutrient need. Just shake it, open it and enjoy a delicious meal! You can set you mind at ease too, MANA Drink does not contain any lactose or any other animal products so it’s completely vegan. If you are looking for a tasty, balanced and time effective food, you don’t have to search anymore. MANA Drink is the one for you.

Every move counts

Lack of exercise is a problem which affects a lot of people. Sedentary jobs and a global change in lifestyle within our society are to blame here. We give preference to use of public transport or cars instead of just walking. Why not try to get off a few stations earlier and walk the rest of the way. Choose stairs instead of an elevator. Find the right exercise for you. If you don’t want to sweat at the fitness center, go for a swim, or a run, try yoga. Moving to a healthy lifestyle doesn’t need to be harsh. Eventually, over the course of time, you’ll find that every little change you have done for yourself is greatly rewarding.

We ran out of Powder. Drink is available. Why?

2017powderoff3

We ran out of Powder. Drink is available.

This weekend, we ran out of Powder. All incoming orders for powder will be shipped after March 24th. I will try to explain why does this happen over and over again. Actually, from the very beginning, it is the Xth time we are stuck in this situation. The reason is very simple: when we think, we are well equipped and there is enough reserve to cover the demand, there comes a further and unexpected growth. And this happened since beginning of this year.

In the situation like this, we overplan new production with 50% monthly growth and from it we set the production plan and schedule terms with our business partners. They also have a filled schedule and we have to plan very well with narrow coordination. Usually everything runs according the plan. But in this case we experience an unexpected growth two months in a row so the schedule can’t be changed accordingly and the the delay accumulates. It’s like a close circle, when everything is connected with everything. During January and February this year, we shipped as much as for 8 months last year! Our stocks disappeared with the speed of light.

We are in process of filling and packing. The next production will be increased by 100%.

Good news is, that we are shipping our Drink, which is also disappearing very fast. The first production of Drink was more than 250.000 bottles and we expect this supply to hold till April. I would like to apologize for the problems with the delayed delivery. Even if it seems that we don’t know what are we doing, believe us, we work hard to keep pace with the growth. Our logistic, production, packaging and expedition departments works as hard as they can.

Thank you for your patience and confidence.

Jakub, MANA

Taste with no borders. In February, all shipping is free.

It is our mission to remove all barriers that block the access to well-balanced and affordable food. We believe that everyone is entitled to it.

On the european market, overpriced shipping costs are one of these barriers. Ever since we started, we have offered free shipment within our homeland Czech Republic. Now we have decided to push the limits even further and to offer free shipping for all of our products within the entire European Union, to Switzerland and Norway. This offer is valid until the end of February, it doesn’t cover additional fees and taxes though. “Prices for Drink & Powder remain the same, they stay just as good as they are.”

We have also updated new pricing on drinks! Now you can buy with savings!

Drink MANA! It’s better to be good.

Delicious theory of everything.

It is our mission to produce delicious and nutritionally complete foods with focus on chemical compound in highest detail. After very popular powdered form, it’s time for MANA drink. We have been working on research and development for the past year and finally we are releasing our latest and most advanced product we have ever made. This is a whole new level for us as a manufacturer and we strongly believe that you’ll love the product as much as we do. Price tag is €2.50 per 400 kcal drink with free shipping in larger quantities.  Drink is available for purchase starting today.

Based on clinical studies

This is a big leap forward for our products! MANA formula [MARK 3] is based on the latest scientific statements from EFSA, WHO, and more than 44 clinical trials specifically related to our ingredients. On their basis, we are allowed to state various number of health claims. We are the first and only product of its kind to declaring such a thing.

One drink is 400 kcal. 20% of your day.

One bottle is 330 ml and consists 400 kcal of nutritionally balance energy. One drink provides 20% of your daily nutritional requirements. And most importantly, it’s delicious!

Thanks to everyone who made this happened.

TEDx Powered by MANA

fb-tedx

What is TEDx (Technology, Entertainment, Design)?

It’s a mind-opening and worlds-connecting meeting. It’s a non-profit initiative, centered around ‘thoughts worth spreading’ – the sharing of imaginative ideas and stories. TEDxPrague was inspired by TED and originated under its license in 2009.

This year’s topic will be “Our own and the other’s”. “’Our own and the other’s’ embraces a broad range of topics, starting from the current migration, our national identity and our connection to environment, to immunity, nanotechnologies and self-driving cars. Our goal is to bring to our visitors the most interesting program, that TEDxPrague has ever offered,” says Matěj Novák, leader of the organizational team.

There will be a MANA bar available during the event, which will provide to all visitors and lecturers everything their bodies need, from a nutritional point of view.

TEDxPrague is the first stage of our offline tour, which is being finalized at the moment. It’s complete program for the whole next year will be introduced soon. It is also a unique opportunity where you can taste our experimental flavors, which aren’t yet on sale.

So see you there! Team MANA

Mana is back. We are shipping again!

Dear friend and customer,

as you probably know, there was a 21 days long shipping limbo due to increasing demand which resulted in a stock shortage. That is now history and we started shipping again!

As an owner of the company, which do its best to put the customer in the first place, I realize that such a situation is not pleasant at all. We are aware of it and I believe we learned a lot from this situation.

We will try to prevent any possible gaps in the future. To get enough production buffer, we started to produce three times more than before. If necessary, we are ready for a further increasement of the monthly production. Next month, we are going to move our production line in a new 1300m2 hall. We are also planning further robotization and optimalization of the producing process. Next time I will tell you more about this topic 🙂

“We have 1643 orders on the waiting list now. First orders have been sent yesterday, the rest of the orders will be processed according to date of receipt. Thank you for your patience, packing and shipping of so many packages takes few days.” Thank you for support 🙂

We know, that the delay with deliveries may have caused some problems to our customers. From this reason, we decided to credit 5 loyal points to each customer. Just look in your account.

Thank you for your endless support

Jakub, CEO

Delivery and Master Plan

jakub-oist

From the very beginning, all parts of the production and distribution were carried out in the form of manufactory. Nowadays, we cooperate with companies with specialization for different parts of the production process. Mixing is done in our factory and customized packaging fullfilled on a mass-production lines. 

Delivery. We started the marketing later, because it represents only the third step in our business plan. Priorities of MANA strategy are from the very beginning as follows:
1) To produce a damn good product
2) To deliver a damn good product

Current situation update: Due to the rapid increase in number of orders we’re not able to ship enough products. For the last 3 months demand has grown over 180%, so it has greatly exceeded our original production schedule. It happened for the first time that we have no supplies to deliver even to our regular customers. In past few weeks we established many restrictions to avoid complete sellout, but that did not help. On the contrary every new restriction led to a further increase of the number of the orders.

At this moment we are producing new supplies. The incoming orders will be sent in order as of their acceptance. We want to ensure you that the production proceeds in two shifts. In order to catch up on this gap, we are working 16 hours a day including the weekends.

On September 24th we start with shipping again. The orders of the regular customers will be processed in preference and directly after that the orders of our new customers. The orders will be send in order of their acceptance. At the moment our team works at 100% to manage to adapt logistically and reset to a mode when each order will be shipped in 24 hours.

Master Plan. This year we are about to introduce two new products. One of them is a drink that we have already announced. At this moment we are in the phase of reproduction packaging and the first production test. For now, we plan to start selling this product at the end of 3Q 2016. The second product was partly evolved by a happy coincidence and now we are already in the phase of preparation. Launch of the product with code-name “B” is scheduled for the turn in the 1-2Q 2017.

We’re therefore going to produce 3 SKUs, which will be from a logistical point of view three times more difficult. Nonetheless we feel ready for it. In September we are moving into a new production hall with 1,000 square meters capacity. In connection with the new place we are working on an upgrade of our production line, which we want to completely robotize into an automatic mode. Our investment into robotics, automatization and complete reconstruction of the hall will cost approximately 100k euros this year.

Thanks to that we will be able to produce simultaneously a powder, a drink and product “B” on a global scale, especially because we plan to produce the drink in the US in the 2Q 2017 . Now we are at the stage of setting up a company and selecting a product packaging supplier in the US. Of course mixing of the powder will be kept in CZ.

Thanks to all for your support and understanding. I am sorry that I have recently not written much, but honestly, I have 5 unfinished similar blogs, so I am very happy that I have finally posted this one :-). Jakub

[MARK 3] v2. Less salty. Equally sweet.

tumblr_inline_oau17uct2s1shh0v2_500

New less salty taste

On the basis of customer reviews,we modified the salinity  of MANA, by changing quantity and ratio of the ingredients that are responsible for salty taste. So we decreased the amount of potassium chloride and sodium chloride. These salts are forms of sodium and potassium, supplied in excess to the amount of natural content of sodium and potassium in ingredients Total quantity of sodium is unchanged, remainder we replace by sodium carbonate,which in addition balances the pH.

New fiber ratio

We decided to adjust the ratio of soluble and insoluble fiber, and also to its source. From our tests, the best version is the presented version which contains much more oat fiber. Now the MANA is more thick and ensure stronger feeling of fullness.
