Hi,

MMY - In the frame of the Tax Shelter and since this project is already part of the Tracer, should I understand that it will account for year 2018 ?

QIQO Team - Since most of the founders are sell side at FMCG large player, in which extent could you use our network to sell your QIQO product to retails group (juridic & timing/delay) ?

Have a nice day

Hi David, thank you for your question and apologies for the late reply. Qiqo is part of a Tracer which we launched specifically for 2017 and the capital increase will close at the notary's before the end of the year. So it is not part of the 2018 Tracer.

Best regards,

Can your your product be rated kosher ?

Amaury T Entrepreneur

Hi Bruno,
Thanks for your question. Sorry it took us a while to reply.

Our product can be rated Kosher & Halal. We are awaiting the final certificates in order to put this as a claim on our packaging.

Other claims as gluten-free, non-GMO and organic/bio are pending.

Kind regards,
Amaury

Wat is de exit-strategie?

Amaury T Entrepreneur

Hi Victor,
Thanks voor je vraag!

De meest waarschijnlijk exit is een overname door een grotere FMCG groep, zoals we er tegenwoordig meer en meer zien. Hieronder meer details over onze visie:

(1) FMCG groepen zoeken top-line groei en hebben het moeilijk om dit intern te genereren, vandaar dat ze steeds vaker naar aquisities kijken. Dit kunnen volledige bedrijven zijn (AB Inbev & SAB Miller, Kraft & Heinz, Danone & White Wave (Alpro)) alsook 'small bets' met veel potentieel die in de toekomst kunnen uitgroeien tot grote merken (CocaCola & Innocent Drinks, Danone & MicheletAugustin, Kellog & RXBar, Nestle & Blue Bottle Coffee).
(2) FMCG groepen zoeken ook naar nieuwe business models zoals 'direct to consumer'. Met hun huidige merken kunnen ze dit niet omdat ze boycots van retailers riskeren, daarom dat ze verkiezen om nieuwe merken/bedrijven met dergelijke modellen op te kopen. Grootste voorbeeld is Unilever dat Dollar Shave Club (en 7th Generation) heeft opgekocht net omwille van deze 'direct to consumer' capaciteiten.

QIQO is een merk dat voor de 2 parameters in aanmerking komt, en daarom kunnen we zeker in de toekomst een samenwerking met een grote FMCG speler overwegen om onze groei verder te stuwen.

Groetjes,
Amo from QIQO

Hi Pierre,
Thanks a lot for your question!

Given our current small-scale production, our ingredients are sourced via wholesalers to our manufacturer. We are currently working on making the next batch 'full organic', and sourcing fairtrade ingredients will be the next step in our product development.

Our company vision is to 'be good and do good', meaning a fair sourcing of our ingredients, but also go there ourselves and invest 10% of our profits in the local communities to increase their quality of living etc. Closer to home we want to support causes related to this centuries' epidemic of burnouts.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
Kind regards,

Amo from QIQO
