Launch of Daysie

After years spent marketing other brands and products for other corporations, consumer packaged goods veteran Tara Pate is launching a line herself called Daysie. Pate said her business will offer a line of thoughtfully designed and delicious tasting simple syrups for coffee and occasions, Pate announced in a news release.

Pate, an integrated marketing professional, spent the last five years working for big brands like NatureBox and DripDrop Hydration out of San Francisco but moved back to the Charleston area to be closer to family at the beginning of the pandemic.

Pate worked on her business for over a year and a half while she was furloughed from her full time job, according to the release. 

Pate launched Daysie with three signature flavors to start: Madagascar Vanilla, Coconut Almond and Salted Caramel. Each Daysie flavor is certified organic, contains natural ingredients, is made with zero preservatives, and comes in a recyclable glass container, the release said.

Currently Daysie is an e-commerce company but is quickly looking into wholesale opportunities at local shops and cafes.
