Its not just food, its “Life”

Idea Generation & Screening
When we were going to start business we have had many ideas regarding a new product. But we selected packed foods (salan) out of many because of its importance and need in the current market.

Water Spraying Comb:
A comb that that can spray water whenever you press its button. That can make combing easier for you. Rejected: on the grounds that its market is very limited and most of the people prefer using hair tonics and gel instead of spraying water on their hair before combing

Airy Helmet:
A helmet that has some stylish kinds of hole in it to make the helmet airy and keep the head cool under the helmet Rejected: On the grounds that only those people will buy who have bikes. And most of the people don’t want to wear helmet.

2

Its not just food, its “Life” TV with DVD Rom:
A TV that has DVD Rom attached with it. There is no need to carry DVD Rom separately with TV. Rejected: On the ground that it involves too much technology and technology can get obsolete very soon

Car Casings:
Customized body/casing of cars just like when you get bore of your cell phone casing you change it. Similarly you can get new casing for your car. Rejected: On the ground that its cost may be very high and Most of the people wouldn’t be able to buy it frequently. Only for those who have cars. And each car requires different type of casing and that would make it even more expensive.

Packed Salan (Food):
Packed Traditional food like salan etc . That would be useful for people who have less time and mostly eat instant or fast food that has health hazardous effect on them. This packed food can provide them with nutrition they need and the traditional taste they want.

Accepted: On the ground that every one need food. And in todays modern
world every one wants to eat quickly. So, ready to eat meal do have a potential market and it is really the need of the people. So, we named it “Ta’am” . So this project is about launching “Ta’am”
