Foodist Makes Exclusive Contracts with 8 Top British Producers

Public

Dear Companists,

B2B sales enable Foodist to access two major areas of sales: gifts and rewards for corporate customers and the sale of exclusive delicacies to retailers.

 

Foodist: The Expert on the Delicacy Market

Over the last few months, Foodist has been the first company to introduce many products to the German market. Therefore, the Foodist box serves not just as an instrument of marketing but also as a tool of making relatively valid forecasts as to which products will work in Germany. Indeed, by means of 1,750 monthly subscribers and more than 300 feedback questionnaires per month, we can collect detailed information about the products.

Moreover, the sales performance in our shop shows us which products are preferred by the Foodist customers.

Starting in June 2014, we will sell products that we have successfully tested in the Foodist box and whose sales figures in the Foodist online shop have convinced us to B2B customers in Germany.

In so doing, we will concentrate exclusively on the producers and products that received the highest ratings in the Foodist box. During the initial stage, this will be 8 producers whose products are not yet available on the German market and which have authorized us to exclusively sell their products on the entire German market for at least half a year. As far as acquisition is concerned, our sales team will initially focus on gourmet shops, hotels, and select supermarkets.

 

Corporate Customers: Goodbye Bouquet

It is our goal to replace the obligatory bouquet of flowers for employees or the umbrella as a thank-you after the purchase of a car with tailored Foodist boxes. Initially, we will focus on car dealers, real estate agents, and kitchen studios. This approach has already been successful so far because, for instance, all employees of Newsaktuell (a German press agency) receive a cake in a glass with a greeting tag on their birthday and because we are in intense negotiations with a kitchen studio, which may give a free cooking box to each customer who purchases a kitchen. You can download our brochure containing all information here.

 

Sales Power!

This month, our sales department was joined by Pascal Schüßler, a highly motivated sales manager. Before joining us, Pascal gained valuable experience as an assistant branch manager in the retail industry and in the sales department of the start-up avocadostore.de. He is eagerly waiting to finally take an iPad, a catalog, and product samples and to present Foodist to purchasers and assistants to the management at various companies. From June onward, Pascal will be supported by Valentina, who is currently still studying at the renowned Zeppelin University.

 

Best regards,

The Foodist team

NOTE:

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
