Newest Update - #5
It's summertime and we all look forward to sharing food and good times with friends. Eating at picnics and BBQ's, hosting gatherings at home and dining out. These are just some of the ways we enjoy ourselves. Wherever we leave food though, THEY seem to appear. Everyone finds them bothersome - Fruit Flies.
We've worked in the food industry for over a decade and one of the biggest issues to deal with were fruit flies. After spending countless hours building and replacing our own Do-It-Yourself Fruit Fly traps, we realized the wasteful cost of time and materials without always having the best results.
We decided that the only way to effectively solve this problem was to invent our own solution that focused on our concerns: Time, Money and Waste. We engineered the washable, reusable Fruit Fly Funnel which can convert most plastic bottles into a highly effective fruit fly trap.
What this means is the cost effective elimination of fruit flies and drastically reducing the dangers of contamination. It also means creating a cleaner environment while giving yourself more time and money to focus on the things that really matter to you.
Your support is appreciated, and does not go unrewarded! Contribute Today and receive Fruit Fly Funnels of your very own that will keep those pesky fruit flies at bay, and give you the peace of mind you need.
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges we face is opposition from our more expensive and less effective market competitors selling disposable, one-time use traps. Our product and strategy will be disrupting the market and many people could be upset at how we affect their recurring revenue streams.
We believe that planned obsolescence business models are not advantageous to a customer's bottom line and certainly not for the Earth, so we decided to do something about it by offering people a choice:
Re-use cost-effective solutions or stick with paying for traps that you continuously throw away or have to re-create. This has been a challenge because if you are a retail store owner you want people coming back to your store to re-buy your traps. Ours are so effective, they may only have repeat sales to replace lost traps or as gifts to give away!
One of the ways we decided to go to market was to go direct to consumer through crowd funding and eventual web sales with the option for retail owners to contact us to sell our solution through their stores.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
