Summary

Summary: 
The Chilean company develops and offers IoT connected dispensers and smart reusable packaging for home care, personal care, beverages and food. They eliminate packaging waste while providing maximized cost savings and convenience. Their system provides game-changing product traceability and deep business intelligence for retailers. They are looking for partners in France, the Netherlands, UK and Germany for license agreements or franchising to implement their reusable system.

Description

Description: 

The Chilean company is dedicated to dispensing products in smart reusable packaging.
The consumers deposit funds into the company`s app, via credit card, bank cards or fintech providers. Next, using their packaging as a wallet technology, funds can be deducted as consumers purchase products-via communication between their smart packaging and their IoT connected dispensers. The system enables the customers to purchase exactly how much product they desire while paying the same per-unit-price, regardless of the quantity of the product purchased.
When customers purchase products, they update a real-time impact dashboard that shows the avoided plastic from the refill purchase. The real-time sales data can also be used to create powerful business intelligence and perhaps be integrated into European schemes.
They are offering possibilities of franchising or license agreements to partners from Germany, France, the Netherlands and UK. The partner has to have logistical and commercial capacity to oversee the deployment of the Chilean company`s products into new European markets.
They are looking for values-aligned implementation partners to become a partner in Europe.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The company`s business model creates a triple bottom line impact. The first is the economic impact since they seek profitability as a consequence of their social and environmental actions. Secondly, they generate a social impact, since they sell products in bulk without increasing the product cost when a consumer only has financial resources for a smaller quantity of product. In doing this, they help raise disposable incomes of low-resource families. This solves what they call the poverty tax. Finally, the third impact is environmental. Every time their reusable packaging is refilled, they eliminate the need for a single-use packaging unit. This keeps packaging in the economy and out of the environment
