Buy me a coffee or tip me on or .
Zhong Qingxian had been looking for contractors. Thecommercial was filmed, and it was in the post editing phase. The formula wasalso developed, and he had let many people taste it. The results were positive.
Feng Yu also said that this milk tea tastes good. It willsurely sell well.
Through connections, Zhong Qingxian got the approvals fromthe government and was permitted to produce and sell this new product. But theissue of contractors was still not finalized.
Zhong Qingxian had already contacted a few factories. Thesefactories had the capabilities to deliver what he wanted, and he will bedeciding which factory to work with these few days. After that, the productionwill start.
Feng Yu had agreed to let Tai Hua Supermarket sell Lehaha’smilk tea first. Next year, after CCTV start to advertise this milk tea, this milktea will be introduced to the rest of the nation.
At this moment, a Guangdong factory, which manufactureschildren food products, came knocking on the door. This factory wanted to beLehaha’s contractor for tapioca balls and coconut jelly.
“Mr. Zhong, our company might not be big, but we can surelymeet Lehaha’s order. the profits we want is also not high.” Li Dajun saidanxiously.
“Manager Li, despite what you said, but business isbusiness. We will be investing a large amount for the initial phase, and wecannot afford any failures. Your company is set up not long ago, and yourfactory is not big. You also do not have a lot of workers. How can we trustyou?” Zhong Qingxian replied.
If anybody could walk in and claim that they could deliverwhatever we want, and I give them the contract, then Lehaha would have beenbankrupt a long time ago. I also need to be responsible for Lehaha’sshareholders and workers.
“We have already taken a bank loan, and we are expanding ourfactory now. We have also bought the machinery, and our new workers are undertraining. We will definitely deliver your order. You can set the compensationamount higher. If we can’t deliver, we are willing to compensate for a higheramount for breaking the contract.” Li Dajun begged.
“Higher compensation? I don’t think this is a good idea.Even if the compensation amount is higher, you all still have to be able toafford to compensate us. Your company is only worth 1 to 2 million RMB. Ifsomething goes wrong, the bank will freeze your accounts first because of yourloans. That means we will not get a single cent of compensation. If you delaythe production of our products, our losses might be up to tens of millions. Canyou compensate us?” Zhong Qingxian was pissed.
“Mr. Zhong, we might be selling jelly, but our jelly isselling very well. There will be no problems. I guarantee that there will be noissue with our quality.”
“Enough. It’s the only jelly. There are hundreds offactories producing jelly in China. Most of them are bigger than your company.Why should we give you this contract? Furthermore, if you accept our order, doyou still have people to produce jelly? Do you still have production lines? Areyou going to be our contractor full time? I am very busy. Xiao Wang, send himout!”
Zhong Qingxian stood up and walked out of the meeting room.Feng Yu was at Lehaha, and he did not have time to waste with a small factory.
“Mr. Zhong, our Strong Group is very sincere to work withyou all. Please believe us!” Li Dajun shouted.
Feng Yu was in the meeting room next door, and he heard thecommotion outside. He walked out: “Qingxian, what’s wrong?”
“A small company heard that we were looking for contractorsand came to look for us.” Zhong Qingxian explained.
“Oh. Is the company too small?”
“It’s not only small. Although they are also producing foodproducts, they are manufacturing children jelly products. They do not meet ourrequirements.”
Li Dajun saw this person could casually speak to Mr. Zhong,he immediately shouted at Feng Yu. “Sir, our Strong Group really have thepotential. Please consider us.”
“Xiao Wang, call the security to drag him out!” ZhongQingxian was furious. What type of person was this?
“Wait!” Feng Yu suddenly stopped Xiao Wang. “What is yourcompany called again?”
“Guangdong Strong Group. We manufacture jelly. We startedlast year, but we are growing rapidly. In less than 2 years, our value hasincreased by several folds.” Li Dajun said.
“That is because your foundation is small. Even if yourvalue had increased by several folds, your company is worth 2 million RMB atmost.” Zhong Qingxian added.
You want to trick Manager Feng with these words? What ifManager Feng agreed and your factory cannot keep up with the production anddeliver the order?
Feng Yu heard Li Dajun, and he frowned. Damn. I asked ZhongQingxian to name the brand of milk tea as U.Loveit and Strong Group immediatelycame knocking on our doors. Was this coincident? But how did this famous StrongGroup become like this?
“Xiao Wang, prepare some tea. Qingxian, I would like to havea chat with him.”
Feng Yu had spoken, and Zhong Qingxian could not reject him.He also entered the meeting room with Feng Yu. He does not want this Li Dajunto trick Feng Yu and let Lehaha suffer losses.
Feng Yu seldom interfere with Lehaha’s management. He onlygave some useful suggestions before. How come he was so interested in thisStrong Group today?
Could it be that Manager Feng wants Lehaha to startproducing jelly too? But anyone can produce jelly. Even if the jelly wereselling under Lehaha’s brand, the sales would not be good. It might even be afailed product. Lehaha still does not have any failed products. Their firstfailed product must not be jelly.
“What is your name? I am one of Lehaha’s shareholders. I donot have more authority than Mr. Zhong, but I still have some say in thiscompany. Tell me why you are so confident that you can be Lehaha’s contractor?”
“I have worked in a food production plant in Taiwan. Thatfactory is producing tapioca balls. Also, our company has strict management ofour factory’s food safety and hygiene. You all do not need to worry about thisaspect, and we will not give Lehaha any problems. Our workers are all very hardworking, and we will deliver the order.”
Feng Yu shook his head. “Our order is too big, and yourcompany will not be able to handle it. Also, have you produced coconut jellybefore and have your company made any canned products before?”
“We will be introducing a new type of jelly. There arefruits added into the jelly. We also have research on coconut before. We areconfident that we will be able to deliver the order. Sir, Mr. Zhong, you cannotonly get one contractor to prepare your order. If there is any problem, yourproduct will be affected. We only want to be one of your contractors. We do notneed to take on the full order.” Li Dajun said.
Feng Yu frowned. What Li Dajun said was true. If all theeggs were kept in one basket, all the eggs might be gone if there were anyaccidents.
“Qingxian, what is the other company you have in mind? Haveyou signed the contract?”
“China Coconut Palm Group will be helping to manufacture thecoconut jelly for us. Dongnan Sanfa Company will be producing the tapiocaballs, which is the pearls in the milk tea. We still have not signed thecontract as we are still considering.”
“Why not give Strong Group some orders to help them out? Ithink his factory really need this order.” Feng Yu said.
Since Feng Yu had said, Zhong Qingxian nodded. “Ok. We willgive them some orders, but the quantity will not be large. After all, thiscompany will not be able to manage big orders. Also, if there are any problems,we will terminate the contract immediately.”
Feng Yu turned and looked at Li Dajun. “Your problem issolved.”
“Thank you, Mr. Zhong. Thank You, sir.”
A wide grin appeared on Feng Yu’s face. “Oh, your company isgrowing. Does your company need money?”
Translator’snotes: This instant bubble milk tea, U.Loveit, was supposed to be StrongGroup’s product.
