At the core of its mission is a unique business model that supports K -12 education and strengthens intergenerational family development. After completing an in-depth analysis of the market, the company adjusted its market-entry strategy to address the COVID-19 pandemic effects. It then moved forward to complete FDA registration formalities and selected A-Com Global Logistics of NY as its logistics provider and appointed Eats and Treats International as its exclusive North American Importer. Crafers’ full line of chocolates, wafers, marmalades, candies, marshmallows, and chips will enter U.S. distribution channels in the second half of September 2020.
With its advisers’ help, the company also developed a unique relationship with the World Affairs Councils of America to support its Academic WorldQuest Program.
The company intends to pursue distribution across all 50 States. It will initially focus on alternative retail and ethnic markets. The first quarter of 2021 will unveil its proprietary online/offline education program designed to deepen and strengthen relationships between grandparents and their grandkids and improve educational skills outside of the formal learning environment.
To assist Crafers in its US market rollout and subsequent growth, the company has sought assistance from experienced US and Uzbek-based professionals. Broad Street Capital Group will develop and implement Crafers’ market-entry strategy and help the company build out its US organization and distribution infrastructure.
Lipman Law PLLC of New York and Kosta Legal of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, will provide strategic legal advice and services.
