Export company to the far east.


A lot of people import products using websites like alibaba but I want to set up a website selling high quality products to the growing middle classes in china and india. I heard on the news the other day that chocolate is suddenly booming in china, I bet they only have cheap stuff over there, I could export top quality Belgian chocolates and also generally high quality British stuff. Are there any Chinese people on here, would it work?

This is a much better idea then importing stuff. There is competition however. Look at what is becoming popular in china, if like you say its chocolate focus on that.

Anthony is right, what sort of things would you export that are high quality?

I like this idea, but you say “I bet they only have cheap stuff.” How much research have you done on it?

I also second (third?) the suggestion that you stick to one thing. If you want to be a chocolate importer by all means be the best chocolate importer there is, but don’t water it down by importing “generally high quality British stuff”.

Get clear on your plan and it could be a good one!

I agree that this is a very good idea. Generally this site is very early on in the idea stage so that’s why the idea seems vague eva. Although Rachel you do seem to have made some assumptions, I mean why on earth would they only have cheap chocolate?
