According to numerous posts in the official Soylent forum, it appears that Rosa Labs has managed to get caught up on their massive many-month backlog of Soylent orders!
This is a gigantic milestone for the company and product, as demand has so far outstripped supply that people were resorting to ebay and Craigslist – often paying massive premiums – just to get their hands on some.
Reports are that initial orders are being placed and shipping notices are being sent within 2 weeks. Compare that to the 5+ months many people were previously experiencing!
So what does this mean going forward? Obviously we can only speculate, but I for one believe it means that international orders can’t be too far off. There is definitely a hungry market for Soylent outside the US borders, and while Rosa Labs has been unable to supply it, other smaller companies have stepped in and established themselves. I don’t think it will take long for Soylent to become the dominant powdered food outside the US as well, and certainly for the company’s long-term viability, I hope they do so soon!
Congrats Rob and everyone at Rosa Labs for having managed to conquer this step in less than a year from initial launch!
