After only one week of work, we offer you a glimpse into the "underbelly" of our project to produce community preventive masks.
For the past week, we've been working hard (even tripling!) and have been able to do multiple tests, demos and patterns with our internal research and development team (Frëtt-Solutions) and also with Gaspesian sewing workshops. The production and logistics aspect is well placed and solid.
- On April 8th, we started (finally) a first production of our preventive community masks in factory with our main production partner Confections C.Cliche in Beauce. This first production of about a hundred masks will allow us to evaluate the product, to ensure quality, to adjust the overall production, to do washing tests, etc.
- We continued our evaluation work with scientists and health professionals. We were able to conclude on the best fabric to use, the type of stitching, and the overall design for maximum comfort.
- Our communications team suddenly expanded, and requests for information exploded. The team is designing a trendy online store, various tutorials and fact sheets on the various mandatory processes. We can't wait to tell you all about it.
- In all good deals, it is also necessary to talk about the financial part, which is co-evaluated with the help of @Femmesor GIM and its network of professionals.
With the results and adjustments of this pre-Easter production, we will then be able to distribute another production in our networks, establish the final price (and announce it to you) and continue with our accomplices.
It's quite a project of innovation and agility to do this in this context of COVID.
We are fit, structured and focused!
After Easter we will certainly be able to say "TADAM" to you.
THANK YOU for your patience which allows us to produce a durable, quality and above all reliable product.
