The problem this product solves
Paradiset loves good food and fair trade within the food industry. We have a lot of experience from the largest food chains and we know everything we need to know - and a lot of things that we wish we didn't know.
We are fed up with mass production, additives, pesticides and recklessness against humans, animals and health! We are fed up with still having to struggle to find good products on the shelves, and that organic food is being pushed in the ads but still limited in the product range.
We want a change, and we want it now.
How the product solves it
Paradiset is for everyone who cares about what they eat, where the food comes from and it contains. Paradiset is a place where we support the farmers so that they can keep producing their products with passion and dignity. A place free from food with unnecessary and deleterious additives. Thats why it is so simple to shop at Paradiset, the products you find in our stores are all carefully selected and chosen by us.
Paradiset has the largest grocery stores in Scandinavia for natural and organic products offered at a good price.
At Paradiset you can only find good and natural products, ranging from fruits, pasta, oils, beauty products to diapers at the right price. It is a one-stop-shop with everything you need. We have three shops in Stockholm and our vision is to expand nationally and continue expanding internationally after that. We offer free home delivery within Stockholm today so that you can go shopping in our city store for instance, and then get your groceries delivered home. We also have a "regular visitor program" where the members get special offers, info about new product launches and invitations to inspiring seminars.

Paradisets target market is the people in Sweden who wants to eat natural and organic food. That is why we want to do this journey together with our guests, to be able to expand nationally and make Paradiset available for everyone.
Paradiset is the only food retailer in Sweden that only offers real food without additives. Our main competitors are ICA, COOP and Hemköp and the online based shops mathem.se and mat.se.
Unique differentiator from competitors
The main difference between Paradiset and the other food stores is that Paradiset only offer real food without unnecessary or hazardous additives. In addition to that, we don't sell meat that has been treated with antibiotics or hormones, nor birds from farms where the animals are not able to free range or fish from non sustainable stocks.
Company revenue streams
We make profit from selling natural and organic products at a fair price. We also sell gift cards and offer catering for events.
Our main channel to our guests is through our stores at Södermalm, City and Sickla Köpkvarter in Stockholm. We also have a webpage www.paradiset.com, we are on Facebook (@Paradiset) with 26K followers, Instagram (@paradisetmatmarknad) with 20K followers and a newsletter that is being sent out to our "regulars" once a week.
4th of June 2015 – our first shop at Södermalm opens on Brännkyrkagatan 62.
3rd of May 2016 – our second shop at Regeringsgatan 44 opens.
25th of January 2017 – our third shop opens in Sickla Köpkvarter.
Next key objectives
Our first goal is to secure a successful crowdfunding campaign with as many new share holders as possible. After that our aim is to establish at least two new shops in Stockholm during 2018 and then expanding to more cities with both big and small shops during 2019.
We have brought in 73M SEK from existing share holders to finance our three first shops. In addition to this we also took a loan at 15M SEK from ALMI and 10M SEK from SEB, also 13M SEK in leasing fridge and freezer equipment. The money has been used to build stores and to establish an effective operation as well as a modern IT-support and business systems. All together this has contributed to a fully functional operation that allows us to grow without having to make further investments in new systems.
We work in a close relationship with our suppliers and producers. We carefully select who we choose to work with and constantly keep a close dialogue with our partners to continuously develop our offer to our guests. We also work in a close relation with the restaurants that is renting space in our food courts to be able to deliver the best possible holistic experience for every visitor.
Use of funds
The money will be used to strengthen the Paradiset brand for future growth and to be able to offer a wider range with better prizes to our costumers. Focus lies in developing our own brand Everyday by Paradiset. About 10% of the collected funds will also be used to cover the costs for the campaign.

Every investor can expect a return of investment by either selling their shares to a higher valuation in coming emissions through crowdfunding or an IPO that is planned within a few years time.
Being a co-owner also entitles 20% discount in the stores during a 12-month period which means that every co-owner that shops at Paradiset will earn back the invested money in a short period of time.
One risk could be if Sweden enters a recession that would have a negative effect on our revenue - however that would consequently also effect every business in the industry. Another risk could be if our competitors would initiate a "price war" instead of joining our course of offering only good and real food. Our ambition is not to outcompete others, but to higher the industry standards. Our growth could also be at risk if we struggle to find good locations fast enough for our new stores or if our suppliers for some reason fails to deliver products to us.
