BLK gives second chances
Following trailblazers like Dave’s Killer Bread, we believe in Second Chance Employment: hiring the best person for the job, regardless of criminal or drug history.
We have witnessed it’s transformative power, and that giving someone who is ready to change their lives a chance – a Second Chance - gives people an opportunity not only to make a living, but to make a life.
In 2011, Jacqueline and Louise Wilkie were researching health aids and products to assist their mother with her breast cancer diagnoses. As they began their search they found many products claim “miracle” health aides to relieve pain and boost the immune system. This is when they discovered fulvic acid, and began administering it to their mother. After about a week she noticed an improvement in her energy and that her overall stiffness had eased up. Experimenting with various forms of fulvic acid, they decided to bottle the fulvic mineral formula as a functional beverage, and that was the birth of blk. The intent behind blk. was to help others. We take that forward – with our fulvic enriched products that we feel passionate about!
