SHE’S working 80 hours a week to hand-make her special granola and Byron Bay businesswoman Indi Sutton convinced Shark Tank’s Glen Richards to fund her company’s expansion with a $100,000 deal for 40 per cent equity and a loan for $200,000.
Sutton’s business, The Monday Food Company, produces organic, gluten free, sugar free paleo baked granola and is struggling to keep up with demand, which is the reason for her long hours.
The growth of her company has been completely “organic” as well, with Sutton hitting the streets of her home town of Byron Bay three years ago to convince shops to sell her granola.
“I think I went to about 14 stores when we first put it all together and every single one of them agreed to take the product on and from there I knew it was going to work,” Sutton says.
