Bona Dea

Our Story

We believe our food choices have a direct impact on our bodies, our communities, and our world and that the food you consume is the most important part of a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we started Bona Dea — delicious whole grain bread and baking mixes that are Non-GMO Verified, allergen and gluten free.

Why Able

As more people understand the benefits of healthy eating, and as we expand our national footprint of retail, restaurant, and hotel partnerships, we’re experiencing an increase in demand for our products. That’s not all. As baking season ramps up this fall and winter, we’re also working to add new products to the Bona Dea line for our awesome customers. That triggers needs for new equipment, a larger production facility, new quality ingredients, packaging and labeling.

As we started to look around for external capital, we reached out to our savvy group of advisors to help. One of them recommended we check out Able as a way to protect the equity in our business, but also get the working capital we need to continue our growth trajectory and launch our new product line.

“Thanks to our Backers and Able, we are able to launch our new product line quicker than choosing another financing option. We look forward to extending our funding partnership with Able as Bona Dea nourishes more bodies with our healthy food options.”
