I’ve been an avid Soylent follower since the start, and a fan of the idea for a long time.
I’d talked to my dad, however, and he’d said that businesses with low profit margins don’t succeed, that price must be 7x greater than cost, etc.
Seems like Soylent Corp. is proving them wrong so far.
The big question… how long can they last before a major food company gets involved? I know, from personal experience at a multi-billion dollar manufacturer, that the giants can pull strings. Manufacturing, distribution, investment opportunities, existing business deals, etc.
I don’t think that Soylent Corp. can survive against the established giants. It’s super easy to replicate. We all do it in our kitchen.
