Hi! 

My name is Alessandro WILLIAM and I am 22 years old. I have a background in economy and agronomy and I live with my family in Spain.

My grandparents were originally from Portugal and, when Angola was still a Portuguese colony, they used to manage various enterprises.

       


One of their Angolan companies used to produce alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks following ancient recipes created by some searcher folks. 

The quality and innovation of these drinks were extraordinary and they were largely exported even to the English community in South Africa, the Belgian and the French ones in Congo and in the USA.

The demand in the USA was supported by the huge presence, in Angola, of the oil refineries officers and by a steady ships traffic.

 


This success brought the American company Canada Dry, that used to trade in Africa as well (now part of the multinational firm Schweppes, Dr. Pepper, etc), to make a substantial offer in order to obtain the rights on the recipes and then produce the drinks in different countries. 

                               

The offer was declined as my grandparents wanted to keep the drinks business in the family.

Sadly, the war that started in 1975 destroyed the country and all the current businesses in Angola, forcing all Europeans to run away leaving behind their possessions.

                                         

                             


After that, with positive family business experience, my mother, that was already showing curiosity in the kitchen since she was a child, became a passionate experimenter in the food sector.

                                              


She took courses led by the most famous chefs in Italy, Spain and France, such as Gualtiero Marchesi, Ferran Adrià, Juan Mari Arzak,  Joël Robuchon and Alain Ducasse.

      

     G. Marchesi           F. Adrià           J. M. Arzak    J. Robuchon     A. Ducasse


She visited all countries in Central and South America, North Africa, Europe, Russia, Middle East, Central Asia, India, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Japan, Nepal and Tibet.

She spent part of her time looking for the local ingredients that were still unknown in Europe.

She investigated the unique plants used by the indios shamans in Canada, Central America, Amazonia and Africa.

She created many recipes that she first tested with the family.


She kept improving the recipes of our project and also had the chance to trade them.

She promoted her drinks with a big firm based in New York with clients in the States and in the rest of the world.

After a few delivery tests she was requested a steady supply.

But my mother had to refuse because accepting it would have meant a big commitment for her in such a difficult time after my dad’s death. She had to take care of us and of our grandparents.

                                   


From that moment many years have gone ... 

Nowadays we live in a region with good land for cultivating, fresh air, and famous for the quality of its wines.


ABOUT THE PROJECT

I believe we can take advantage of the following benefits on our project

Benefits on the trade:

  1. The products had already been known in the past by a lot of consumers and more recently in plenty of private occasions consistently with big success.
  2. The number of potential customers is much bigger than in the past, because the market is now much more open and because we can offer a more detailed distribution in many countries of the world
  3. There is no direct competitor because the results of some researches show that there are no similar products in the market
  4. All products are healthy because, as in the past, they are strictly organic
  5. The business can be started as a family one and then can easily adapt its production and organizational structure following the increase in demand.
  6. Cash flow can be positive from early start. This has always been a relevant factor for success.
  7. This is an historical moment when the international economical recession is at the end and forecasts suggest a positive future.

Benefits on production

  1. We have a deep knowledge of the recipes for the various drinks.
  2. We know the production process for each drink
  3. The equipment and machinery needed are quite simple
  4. Not much space is needed to start production; the agricultural outbuildings of a country house will be enough
  5. There is no polluting waste in the production process
  6. Timings for business expansion are quite short
  7. We have the honor of my mother’s help who has a great passion and creativity for anything connected to food preparation plus a long experience with these drinks we are going to produce. Since then, she always kept testing them in all private functions.

RISKS

  1. The expression “zero risk enterprise”, doesn’t exist. Risks can be high or low depending on the financial analysis of the project, the market researches, the effects of the fixed investments, the human resources available, etc. I believe risk is very low for the reasons described above as “benefits”.
  2. Competitors may exist in future, but won’t be relevant for these products at the beginning. 

About the products’ quality

We are talking about 2 drink ranges:

  1. Alcoholic sparkling organic: ChampagneSoup™ and SunWine
  2. Non-Alcoholic sparkling organic: “Fenix™ sparkling lemon organic drink”, or “Fenix™ sparkling orange organic drink" 

About alcoholic sparkling organic drinks plus the same as “vigor” version.

The main ingredient is white, or rosé or red wine and other natural ingredients that come in contact with wine and go through specific natural process combinations considerably improving the organoleptic properties. It’s the conversion of wine in an exquisite drink that usually is appreciated more than Champagne, with an original taste and low alcohol content

These drinks, besides being healthy, are also enhanced by the aromas and flavors of the Mediterranean sea, that surrounds our land. They can easily match all types of food and they are appreciated even by the most demanding consumers of good vintage wines. We call them “ChampagneSoupe™" and "SunWine™". 

The white, rosé and red “SunWine” will be available also in the “vigor” version that gives physical strength on top of the tasting pleasure and makes you feel bright and dynamic.

This is possible because during one of the phases of the conversion process we introduce the essence of a rare plant (not used by any other producers).

The complete production process for each drink is protected by an international patent.

About the non alcoholic drinks including the “vigor” version

The non alcoholic beverages have as a main ingredient mineral sparkling water, orangeade or lemonade and the addition of plant essences that interact in a natural process. The whole process for each drink is protected by an international patent.

We are talking about the following drinks:

  1. "Fenix™ sparkling orange drink - organic", and the same in "vigor" version
  2. "Fenix™ sparkling lemon drink - organic", and the same in "vigor" version
  3. "Fenix™ sparkling rose lemon drink - organic", and the same in "vigor" version

It is important to know that the “vigor” version:

  1. has already been tested even by sport pros and has always guaranteed them to achieve amazing results. For example, winning several times the rowing champion title.
  2. is a healthy organic substitute for other toxic substances not allowed in competitions.
  3. has been successfully tested by students during their exams sessions
  4. Its effectiveness is perfect for all people of any age subject to exceptional physical efforts

These beverages will be produced and distributed right after the alcoholic ones. 

About PACKAGING and BOTTLING

The bottles used for the alcoholic drinks are the following:

For ChampagneSoup™  rosé and white:

Glass bottle 750 ml / 25 oz

             


For SunWine rosé, red and white:

Glass bottle 750 ml / 25 oz

            


For SunWine rosé, red and white:   

Glass bottle 350 ml / 12 oz                      


The packaging used for the non-alcoholic drinks are the following.

Glass bottle 250 ml / 8,5 oz: shaped as the picture above

Can 330 ml  / 11 oz: as the pictures below

Fenix™ sparkling lemon drink - organic, and the same for "vigor" range

           


Fenix™ sparkling orange drink - organic, and the same in "vigor" range

           


Fenix™ sparkling rose lemon drink - organic, and the same for "vigor" range

             


For the non alcoholic drinks of the “vigor” range, we will use also PET material bottles, more advisable to those practicing sports.


About the equipment used for bottling.

Initially, in order to reduce the investment in expensive fixed machinery, we can instruct specialized companies that can complete the whole service of washing, bottling, closing, labeling and packaging of the glass bottles. 

Everything is carried out through modern automatic equipment installed on trailer (as you can see on the video below)


Afterwards we can proceed with the realization of fixed machinery in place.


About prices for consumers.

Thanks to the quality, innovation and organoleptic properties of ChampagneSoup™ and SunWine™ they can be priced as sparkling wines of high quality such as Champagne.


FUNDS DESTINATION

The collected funds would be more or less invested this way:

  1. approximately 10'000 $ for the first money transfers needed to complete the patent registration for the recipes. I believe it is useful and required to first protect the recipes that are the foundations of this project.
  2. approximately 10'000 $ for the first money transfers needed to complete the international brand and products registration. It is indispensable to avoid that any competitor can use brand or product names identical to ours, creating confusion and detriment
  3. approximately 10'000 $ to pay the consultants that will carry out the        detailed machinery project
  4. approximately 150'000 $ to buy and install all the needed equipment, the tools, the tanks, and the electrical and hydraulic plants (see below some examples)
  5. approximately 10'000 $ for the aid of experts that can guarantee the respect of quality during production.6. 
  6. approximately 20'000 $ to start the production of the packaging based on my drawings
  7. approximately 20'000 $ to initially pay the raw materials to suppliers
  8. approximately 20'000 $ to initially pay the workers looking after production
  9. approximately 30'000 $ for commercial promotions, advertising and to start the creation of a sales network
  10. approximately 20'000 $ for any unforeseen circumstances

In case the fundraising was not successful enough, we could initially reduce the productive capacity and the number of products.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am glad that you and me will be able to offer to everyone the pleasure of these new and delicious drinks.

Me, my mother and my brothers will work with our best efforts, commitment and passion to provide a great success to this project.

Thanks a lot 

God bless you
