In my own selfish interest I’ve collected some reasons for the Soylent Team on why they should consider choosing Austria as one of the first European countries to ship to.
For those who didn’t know: We are a small country with about 8.5 million inhabitants, located in the heart of Europe and part of the EU.
Now my reasons :
- we are a small country with very high GDP (somewhere in the top 15 world-wide) and high personal incomes which does not mean we are any better than any other country, but it does mean, that a high percentage of Austrians will principally be able to buy soylent at the current price (which is not yet possible in countries with lower wages). Plus as mentioned, we are a small country, so it is easier to achieve shipping coverage for the whole country in a limited amount of time and with a lower amount of soylent than you would need for the same percentual coverage in bigger countries.
- Austrians love healthy food, promote their own agriculture & farming and dislike chlorine-washed chicken and similar things
- we are, as mentioned, located in the heart of Europe and member of the EU. This could be some strategical advantage, to use Austria as a starting point and expand from there.
- plus of course my personal interests because I’ve already made a monthly Soylent subscription
Anyone got anything else? ^^
That’s where we are: Location of Austria
So yeah that was my input. I know it will still take quite some time, but I’m prepared to wait.
