Hey all

I came across an endurance/energy drink that is being used by several tri-athletes as well as a pro-cycling team (Local SA team). Its not available in shops at the moment. Had preliminary discussions with the owner/manager regarding the possible marketing/distribition of the product.

 

What information would you need to consider using this product? The price is really good and half of what you would normally expect to pay.

thanks for the feedback so far, keep it coming

I only spoke briefly to the manufacturers/owner yesterday and between us it was agreed that we can start looking at marketing the product properly.

This poll serves the purpose of getting an initial feel of the "market" and to establish if its not saturated already.

I have been given some energy drinks to test in the past that tasted terrible. The most recent one we tried out was the USN Epic PRO - it tasted like dog food. So for me taste is also important especially after a whole day of drinking it.

Sorry, but I dont speak marketing. What exactly is "availability"?

 

As in, yes, for sure I'd consider changing over to another product as long as it is not available?

I got a tub ober the weekend, very light taste, not at sickeningly sweet as some of the stuff you get out there.

Availability like in every LBS/Dischem whereever.

The manufacturer also has to ensure that they have sufficient levels of stock available in order to supply demand.

 

I'm going to meet with the manufacturer in the coming week to determine what information I can distribute etc.

the biggest issue for me is avail... over the long term, if it works well for me price is not a big issue but if I can't buy it again then I will not even try it.

the other thing is it will be cheaper at first but as market share grows the price increases

I also have peptopro samples that I add to my normal energy drink. It does not make my drink bitter.

Yep - it does taste awful, but also swear by it - works for me.

Good stuff, but you need to take another energy drink with it, the Caffeine dehidrates you, but the source of fuel is very good.
