Just wanted to tell you all that I am starting up an own company which will import vegan food, supplements, vitamins and superfoods to Finland!

I'll start with a modest budget of 10 000 EUR (15 000 USD). If you have vegan stuff that you think I might be able to sell directly to consumers or to retail stores, please contact me! I am able to buy stuff in a week or two.

I am convinced that my company will greatly help Finnish vegans to get good protein and stay healthy. My pricing will be modest, since I am more into helping vegans than making money. I print my own labels and I won't have much fixed costs so there isn't that big risk for me. If I can't sell something, I eat it myself! :popcorn:

Wish me luck!

Thank you all! It's great to hear that I am not the only one who's really excited about this!

Things are now happening for real! I spent ~ 5000 USD today while ordering food (about 1000 lbs food on its way over here!). I already have web pages almost finished:
http://www.vegetukku.tarjoaa.fi/ (don't worry about the top banner, the pic will change and it just says that DON'T ORDER YET, TEST MODE ONLY!)

Things I still have to do:

- Order sh*tloads of more stuff such as protein powders ect.
- Receive items as soon as they arrive and print labels in Finnish.
- Type in all the items in my web store.
- SELL EVERYTHING AND MAKE THE WHOLE FINLAND EAT VEGAN FOOD! :boxer:

Right now I will have things such as:

- Protein powders and other sports nutrition
- A large variety of soy and lupin food products including bulk packs (20 lbs of textured soy products in one box, now that should last for a while)
- Sausages, tofu, Spacebars
- Primal jerky
- over 10 different vegan protein bars
- Vegan toothpaste
- Goji berries, spirulina, maca, coconut and such
- Spices

All vegan, many products are 100 % organic, some raw food...

YEAH ROBERT! (Still looking forward for you to send me some promotional stuff! ;) )

Now it's open!

Today 10.01.10 @ 10:01:10 I opened the shop. Nice amount of orders already, even though I am still waiting for most of the stuff which means my product palette is a bit weak right now.

JP showed how it's done, so I really have to give a big up for JP for being such an inspiration! He started the first vegan food webstore in Finnish and now we have two, which of course support each other!

Tomorrow is the first interview, I'm getting loads of free publicity in a few weeks! :D

You can check my web pages, which are now pretty much finished (and in Finnish): http://vegetukku.fi/

Hey! Quick question.

I'll get the VEGA answer to you asap...but my question is, is it just food/supplements, or would you like some VBB clothing or Vegan Fitness DVDs to re-sell and things like that? Or mostly just food stuff?

No worries either way, just want to know what to ship to you :)

-Robert
