Revolutionary Strategies for Starting a Food Manufacturing Company Without Capital
Here's What We Do Better
Our client, a food manufacturing and packaging company based in the United States, lacked both startup capital and industry experience when they approached us for assistance in launching their business. Despite these obstacles, they had a strong business plan and a clear vision for their company.
The client faced several challenges in securing the funding they needed to launch their business. Traditional lending institutions were hesitant to provide funding to a startup company without a proven track record or collateral. Additionally, the client’s lack of industry experience was a significant obstacle in convincing potential investors to provide the necessary funding.
To generate the necessary capital, we employed a combination of multiple countertrade mechanisms:
To address these challenges, we employed a combination of countertrade mechanisms to generate cash revenue for the client. First, we established a Counter-Purchase agreement with a large food distributor in Canada. Under this agreement, the distributor agreed to purchase a minimum quantity of the client’s products in advance, providing the client with a guaranteed source of revenue.
Next, we utilized a direct offset agreement with a food packaging company in Mexico. Under this agreement, the packaging company agreed to provide the client with packaging materials at a discounted rate in exchange for the client’s agreement to purchase a certain quantity of those materials over a specified period of time.
We also established a Joint Venture (JV) with a food manufacturing company in Europe. Under the JV, the European company provided the necessary equipment and technology to the client, while the client provided the necessary labor and resources. The profits were split between the two companies, providing the client with a steady stream of revenue.
Finally, we established an industrial compensation agreement with a food ingredient supplier in South America. Under this agreement, the supplier agreed to provide the client with a certain quantity of ingredients at a discounted rate in exchange for the client’s agreement to purchase a certain quantity of the supplier’s products over a specified period of time.
As a result of these countertrade mechanisms, the client was able to secure over $5 million in cash revenue to launch their business. The Counter-Purchase agreement provided the client with a guaranteed source of revenue, while the Direct Offset and Industrial Compensation agreements helped to lower the client’s costs. The Joint Venture provided the client with the necessary equipment and technology, while also providing a steady stream of revenue.
Due to the success of these countertrade mechanisms, the client was able to launch their business and quickly establish themselves as a major player in the food manufacturing and packaging industry. They have since grown to become a multimillion-dollar company with several locations across the United States and international clients. The company’s success even led to multiple other investors approaching and asking to invest in their company.
