Is China set to swallow the world's money?
While thinking about growing my business and setting a place for its future, I start to wonder about my manufacturing and how the whole world has turned to China to create all the knick-knacks and trinkets that we feel we need for our everyday lives. Without a doubt China has been brilliant at providing us with well manufactured, cheap items that has kept the mass market price point down and with this they have been able to grow their economy providing jobs for their hard working employees.
We all seem to be getting carried away with this idea of cheap products and it does feel like the whole world has jumped on this band wagon, but I can’t help but stop for a minute and think about what is happening to all the money that china is receiving from the world.
On this note Zuma the Dog has decided to make things fairer. We have decided to share our manufacturing and bring some of it back to the EU. Portugal seems to be a country that needs some help. They are known to be able to do small order quantities with fast turn arounds. Their quality is comparable to China and I don’t need to worry about factoring in the duty costs.
I know this will not make a massive difference to the world economy, but to us we feel like we are doing our little bit to help. You will still receive the same great branding and quality from www.zumathedog.com that your kids will enjoy for years to come.
