currently work at Chic Naturals (or those who have worked here in the
past) work as a team with each person carrying out multiple tasks which include, working the
ovens & roasting, packaging, doing the mail, assembling the orders,

clerical work, marketing & printed materials, design & artwork,
etc. Being a small business means we have no need, at this stage, to
employ people to carry out or develop plans to organize our workers or to
justify spending valuable time creating plans and/or strategies in order
to study the efficiency and/or productivity within Chic

business, but it was solved relatively easily when we set up our own
We are now
working on creating a facility on the mainland so we can satisfy the
demand for Chic Naturals snacks & products across the U.S. and also
fulfill export orders to Japan & Canada.
