Building off of this Kickstart Accelerator success, Coop and Migros have both agreed to begin running pilot tests with Faitron. Both of these companies generate more than $24 billion in yearly sales. Faitron is developing a portable, trendy HeatsBox to heat up meals on the go and in the workplace. These trials are designed to test the acceptance of the product along with the performance and convenience of the HeatsBox. Results and observations from the tests will be shared with Faitron to make further improvements to the device and determine possible commercialization.
Coop and Migros are interested in disposable inner dishes that can be placed directly into the HeatsBox. These disposable containers can be sold in supermarkets as prepackaged meals that simply need to be heated up using HeatsBox. This creates a new level of convenience due to a food ecosystem based around HeatsBox.
Faitron is thrilled to begin these pilot test runs with both Coop and Migros and cannot wait to see the future of the HeatsBox!
