We're two dudes doing some research into new adventures in business and feel that veggies and vegans aren't catered for particularly well at all, and we want to change that.<br><br>
Firstly, we're looking at getting some delicious super-tasty veggie/vegan hampers out into the big wide world and are wondering if anyone out there would actually like one? We're talking really great flavours and beautiful produce with the added bonus of not inconveniencing any animals.<br><br>
If these things existed:<br><br>
A: Would anyone buy them?<br>
B: How much would you be prepared to spend?<br><br>
. . and on a more general note, are there any products along these lines that you really want but can't get in your country? .<br><br>
Thanks for reading, and if you can take the time to respond then thank you very much for that too!

What would be the advantage of buying a hamper as such when I can get anything I want delivered from a vegan website? What are you offering me that's different?

Here in the States (where, I'm assuming, most of the users of this site are from), a hamper is a receptacle for dirty laundry.<br><br>
Pretty sure that's not what you're talking about, here. You might want to clarify. Just sayin'.

Hi there, would the US equivalent be a luxury food basket? If so, that's something that we're thinking of offering. Could you see that working?

In the U.S., they are called gift baskets. Are you thinking of making the food yourselves or are you talking about compiling different pre-made foods?<br><br>
I could see it working, especially if you cater towards holidays and special events like birthdays, weddings, divorce parties, bar mitzvahs, etc. I think you should come up with some themes for baskets to give customers ideas. But also tell them that you can customize it they way they want.

Not sure on the food basket thingy as they would be easy enough to make. However there are always room for new products if thats something you can do i.e. vegan cookies or something.

I'm so glad you clarified the hamper thing! I'm in the US and was definitely wondering why I would need a vegan hamper<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
As for the idea, um...maybe as a luxury item for people who don't know what to get people as gifts? Like, every year, my stepbrother buys my mother a gift basket full of english muffins and jams. I guess if he knew someone who was vegan and had no idea what to get them he could go the luxury vegan gift basket route. I don't think I would purchase something like that myself, but it could be a niche market thing.

Ah...that makes <i>much</i> more sense than a vegan dirty laundry basket.<br><br>
Sounds like a cool idea. I would definitely enjoy getting something like that.

I'd love to receive one from friends and family, I love food and good quality/luxery products, and a lot of friends and family aren't always sure what's vegan.<br><br>
I wouldn't buy one myself though, if I had another vegan to give it to, I'd want to make it myself to make it cheaper and more personal. I guess the advantage would be if it were products only usually available online/in specialist shops, but then hampers still aren't the kind of thing you buy yourself are they?<br><br>
If I were to receive one, I think I'd want a mix of luxery "normal" products like jams and drinks (wine!) and specialist vegan products, like vegan millionaires shortbread or fancy biscuits, chocolates, etc. I wouldn't want "ingrediant" type gifts, just end products, so that they're nice treats I can indulge in.
