Ralf (rpw) is currently trying to organize a shipment of Club Mate to San Francisco. He has spoken to Markus Loscher, one of the owners of the Brauerei Loscher which produces Club Mate on 2009-01-30 and confirmed that there is no exclusive deal between 2600 and Loscher that would impede this operation. Labels with "nutritional facts" already exist and can be directly adhered on the bottles by Loscher.

The current ballpark is 200 cases of Club Mate, ETA is mid-April, before CodeCon. A quote for these 200 cases has been asked for. Apparently the destination port is most likely going to be Oakland and not San Francisco, since the Hamburg Süd port no longer services the Hamburg -> San Francisco route.

ToDo

  • look into FDA approval again. Loscher already has a FDA registration from the last export (to the Last Hope). Another one needed?
  • get quotes on container prices again. they should have dropped significantly from 2008 it seems to be more recommendable to use an (ocean) freight forwarder.
  • get quotes on container insurance
  • find driver for route from Münchsteinach to Hamburg harbor
  • organize logistics on receiving end
  • figure out taxing/import duty on receiving end:
  • how do we avoid paying taxes in .de ?


Slogan

"Man gewöhnt sich daran..." Literally, one gets used to it.

It does have some other meanings, You get used to it...you (can) get accustomed to it or in the sense of (suck it up, it'll be ok) you'll get used to it...or you can build up a resistance to it....weird. Strange slogan... --Charlotte 13:53, 21 June 2009 (PDT)
