Oduber @... "ODUBER & Co. Concept by Gustavo Oduber II Date: May, 1999 Summary Statement Oduber & Company has created a unique concept in the food retail-wholesale industry for a potentially unexploit revenue driven niche market. This renews the companyís vision and strategic focus on the value it put on new product development and innovations. The market niche in question occupies a large portion of shelving capacity relative to other product category in supermarkets/hypermarkets, and remarkably has only one product items saturating over 80% of shelve space in that category alone. Oduber & Company has created over 30 new recipes from ingredients around the world to fill such niche market. These new recipes will contain the freshest quality product with a strong accent on health, and a natural bottling/canning process. In order to captivate the market Oduber & Company carefully analyzed the name for its products to reflect its mission and intent thus positioning the product line in the consumerís mind. The potential of this new product line is optimistically favorable from research done on consumerís taste and habits. Preparation, processing, packaging, and distribution require a low technology layout. Distribution is not limited to the retail sector but also to other areas of the industry as well such as hotels, restaurants, and franchises. A business plan must yet be prepared to include an executive summary, company summary, objectives, products, marketing analysis (action plan and forecast, sourcing), management summary, and financial plan. Seed capital needed for the project amounts to @ $ 35,000-55,000. Allocation of dollar invested in stages is negotiable, as long it is a win-win strategy for both parties. For example, allocation of investment in stages can be sustained with a sound marketing and sales strategy to raise additional capital through initial sales by using factoring financing companies. In this case, product samples will be prepared for presentation to major retail outlets thus securing a purchase order. Gustavo Oduber II graduated from Northeastern University (Intíl Marketing) 1982 and from Johnson & Wales Culinary with honors in 1998.
