This time on my 3D Value Networks chats, I had the pleasure of chatting with David Greenfeld, co-founder and CEO of Dream Pops. Dream Pops develops innovative, plant-based foods. Their ice creams are dairy- and gluten-free, have less than 100 calories, and less than 5 grams of sugar. We spoke about Dream Pops’ path to market in retail and how it got where it is today.
If I could summarize three key takeaways from our talk, they would be:
1. The hardest part is not getting onto the shelves, but flying off them and then staying in the mix
2. Patience is a virtue. If you go too fast to retail and you have not built your following prior, you have a big chance of being dropped out and never to return again
3. Magic and the X-factor do not come from easy solutions.
