Re: Australian items on Swiss shelves.

I missed lemon lime bitters more than Tim tams but not as much as potato meat pies. Bundaberg has a good traditional lemonade now I like too.

Considering my products It's almost worth importing 4 pallets into a 6 month storage unit and getting 3 sales reps to canvass small outlets.

Then the labor laws come in to it.. sales commissions minimum wages,

This thread is about Australian products and if we should have them in Switzerland. I recommended a product I like to another user who happens to have a bar in Zuerich. If you think that's off-topic, feel free to report it...
No, please accept my most profound apology. I went off-topic. It was most inefficient of me.

Does anywhere sell Aussie bush meat yet?
Is that standard stuff like kangaroo or something more exotic?

Re: Australian items on Swiss shelves.

Saw this site advertised today on FB.

They have Vegemite and Tim Tam - four kinds (did not look further for other Aus products).

Re: Australian items on Swiss shelves.

Kangaroo steaks in Aldi next week (from Thursday) 1.99 CHF per 100g. A bit too dry for me, I prefer bison or ostrich.

Emu, delicious. Croc, willing to try. Roo, also very nice if they are young enough. Bound (geddit) to be more.

What you selling, gold bars ?

4 pallets of goods to cover cost of goods, transport, storage, distribution, insurance, losses, salaries and costs of 4 people (you + 3 sales reps) for 6 months ?

Sounds like a plan. What could go wrong?

We have so much good stuff here In Oz, things you guys in CH would really want/need.

I wonder what would it take to get them onto the shelves of coop or migros....
Been there, done that... Costs about a quarter million to insert a product into a Co-op or Migros supply chain which the manufacturer is expected to pay. At this point Australian companies leave the table.....
