Products actually developed by Migros Customers!

Anyone else noticed this ever increasing range of products popping up at Migros? There is a special bit on the label mentioning the website 'Migipedia', stating that the product has been developed by customers (only written in French and German on the labels I have seen) -
'Von Kunden Entwickelt' and ' Developpe par des clients'.

Not sure if this means that a critical mass of Migros customers have demanded these products....

My most recent examples - large box of De Ruijter chocolate sprinkles (the Dutch ones), and a jar of fruit-chocolate spread!

Just wondering if this is the route to get the following on the shelves: crumpets, English muffins, decent pitta bread, Soreen malt loaf, fig rolls, oatcakes, mince pies, Wagon Wheels, and prawn cocktail crisps

The problem with that is I generally just go without things from "home." So I would really only be ordering baking soda. Which means 9 chf shipping on a product that cost 3.90 for 200g. I'd rather buy 100 little packets, open them all and stand there pouring them into one container.
Especially since I like to use baking soda for cleaning, I would feel like I was literally washing my money down the drain.

Just here in my small local shop, just next to the knicker elastic and Mauler Champagne. Perfect.

I bought 2 bags for those coming to our Christmas 'do' and nobody wanted it

Re: Products actually developed by Migros Customers!

Noticed quite a few of the Migipedia products in shelves recently too. IF you want to have your brown sugar in Migros, sign up here: http://www.migipedia.ch and request it. I tried it before but you need to give the EAN code of an existing product (from presumably another country) so they can import it and give a good reason why its better / different. Someone who's got a packet of brown sugar accessible: Copy the barcode it, write that you want raw sugar with the Melasses still included and convince the rest of the forum to vote it up - we'll soon be seeing 20 different varieties of brown sugar left, right and centre.
