— Food and beverage brand Nestle bought Austin's coffee company Chameleon Cold-Brew last week. After the purchase, Chameleon will remain based in Austin, and Chris Campbell will continue as CEO.

— Soon people will be able to wash themselves with Salt & Time soap courtesy of Springdale Farms' product line Springdale Handmade. The Salt & Thyme soap is made with Salt & Time lard, Jacobsen Salt Co., and thyme.
