    That and that fact that the only unique thing it had going for it can be copied by other companies like alpro and there is nothing she could do about it.

    Are you saying £250k for a pretty shitty branding that'll put a big part of the target market off the product PLUS a few recipes represents poor value

    Yeah but products like these survive on the branding and being first-to-market. Almost, if not all, food & Beverages product can be copied by the big guys.

    The advantage is that her addressable market is currently not big enough to be of interest to the big players, and once it is, ideally her brand would've developed a strong enough identity to be a mainstay. It's pretty much how it works for all food & beverages (many new brands have done exactly that).

    It's pretty much the exact same issue with the bikini line as well; both are dependent on brand (being on tv new helps). Just one is a lot less complicated from a logistical and operations perspective, whilst being the bigger market and having the bigger margins.

    Well this is one of the weird things I didn't get.
    Camilla already has a brand she sold on before she got on the show (so did Cian or whatever), and it looked nothing like that cow monstrosity. I don't know why she didn't just stick with that.

    There is a good reason why the other companies aren't already making it and that is cost. Her pricing was horrific, even the low content nut milks are expensive.

    Who?
    It's a discussion on business show/entertainment. No need to take it personally.

    Agreed on that. Seems like a nightmare product to scale.

    But she loves nuts, and if there's anyone that can find a way through nut milk all over her, it's Camilla. :p
