I have just now started to experiment with new lines of products to sell at our family store. Of course, I am looking for things that people will want, but which might not be easy to find at other locations. For example, I have located some Vietnamese products made by a company called Tan Hiep Phat and I was thinking that there might be some market for them because the place across the street from us is a Vietnamese or Southeast Asian restaurant. In fact, they seem to mix up the cuisine native to the region, especially since there is not as large of interest in Vietnamese food as there is in Thai food. Of course, the problem is that I am not really sure how much oversight goes into the production of these sorts of products in Vietnam.
You have to worry about some person having an allergy and suing you, or perhaps just claiming that they had some sort of bad reaction to the stuff. I have sampled the stuff and I wonder what to make of it really. From what I can tell it seems to be a body cleansing elixir, but I am not sure because the translation is difficult and so I am looking for more information before I take the plunge. Of course, it needs to have some sort of English language labeling to sell it in this country. I somewhat doubt that it is legal to sell stuff in this country that does not have the nutritional information displayed on it, obviously in a format which Americans would be able to read. I doubt that the FDA goes around checking the shelves of little stores for that sort of thing, but obviously people could report you for this sort of thing if they had nothing better to do.
