Retail distribution for soylent


Question for @rob or @JulioMiles:

Have you put any thought into retail distribution? I’m sure you’ve discovered by now that shipping 30 lb packages through courier services is not cheap. Distributing through retail outlets might help with product discovery and may convert more consumers who are interested but don’t want to order a large amount.

Is this something you might consider in the medium term?


Retail is only cheaper when it’s a high demand commodity. If soylent reaches that stage, retail outlets will demand it. But I can get bulk Potassium Citrate much cheaper at Amazon than any retail outlet, and Soylent will live in a similar corner of the market for some time yet.
