About

The lifespan of plastic is hundreds of years, not one lunch break. It's unnecessary to use flimsy, single use plastic sushi trays destined for the landfill.

Sushecō is a reusable, compact, durable sushi tray, designed for conscious consumers. 

The slimline, dishwasher safe, and leak-proof design makes it the perfect alternative to single use, plastic sushi trays.

After 18 months of refining prototypes, we are confident that the Sushecō design addresses the problems we see with single use sushi trays.

Sushecō compresses to 46% of it’s full height, so it is comfortable to carry and easy to store. We’ve made sure that when at full height, it also fits a large helping of sushi.

With an airtight seal and an easy-to-use opening tab, Sushecō allows you to store sushi for longer after purchasing.

Useful details have been carefully integrated without compromising food space; adding a touch of sophistication to its unique form.

Your pledges will go towards making Sushecō a reality. We need to purchase an industrial tool - something we can only afford with a community of like-minded people getting behind the project. Badly made, single use plastic products are unsustainable - Sushecō is a simple, sustainable solution.

"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." - Henry Ford

The Sushecō’s concept was conceived in late 2013. Working as a tight knit team with manufactures, designers, entrepreneurs and advisers over the past 18 months we are proud to be launching first to the Kickstarter community.

We have met frequently to discuss, research and brainstorm the direction of the Sushecō brand and design. After hours of insights, light-bulb moments, and the hashing and rehashing of our designs we are ready to take Sushecō to the next stage.

We are confident in our latest prototype. A lot of work has gone into producing a streamline visual finish, ergonomic function and a practical pathway to manufacturing. Research and inquiry has been fundamental to our process and we will continually enhance and evolve the concept to make the Sushecō product the best it can be.

The answer of how to pay for the cost of industrial injection molds, which start at around $60,000 NZD, has plagued us from the outset. Kickstarter provides us with a platform on which we can connect with an appreciative, supportive and like minded community around the globe, and gain invaluable insight through your involvement.

 

Risks and challenges

Design changes:
While our prototypes are going through rigorous testing we will not be able to finalise the design without further testing as part of the manufacturing process. Manufacturing challenges may arise and changes may result. We will endeavor to communicate with our amazing backers any of these changes and ensure they are in line with our original design ideas and intentions.

Production:
Manufacturing a product is complex and involves a lot of people working together and communicating effectively to bring to the project to life. It only takes one cog in the process to lead to disruptions and delays. If anything does come up along the way, we've done our utmost to put systems in place to handle and rectify them. As always, we are and will keep our supporters informed as we go.

Shipping:
Having a global marketplace is an amazing thing, but physically getting products around can be difficult. With shipping, we understand the challenges of ensuring that our product arrives at each individual backers address. We've established links with fantastic distribution networks who we are working with the ensure the most efficient way to deliver our amazing product - both in line with our environmental beliefs, and for you the backer, to receive the product in a timely manner.

Our promise:
We care about this product, and over the last 18 months worked tirelessly on making it a reality. We realize creating an amazing product is a complicated process that requires a lot of things to come together but we promise to put in the best efforts possible to deliver you a Sushecō product you are proud to use.
