IELTS Cue Card Describe a successful small company
You should say,
- what this company is
- how you know about it
- what it produces
- and explain why you think this company is successful
The world has plenty of (=a wide range of; a plethora of) new ideas. Last week, I received a video from my friend on Whatsapp. The video started with a man placing a food order in a hotel and waiting for his meal. It took too much time for the food to be served so he started eating the edible (=suitable and safe for eating) spoons, cups, and plates on the table. I found out that those cutleries (knives, spoons, and forks used for eating food) were manufactured by two housewives in my country. I became extremely interested in (=fond of ) the business. (explain why you think this company is successful) The raw materials required for this business are very cheap. They are organic natural ingredients like wheat, jowar, rice powder, millets, grains, pulses and spices. They started making this at home where they made molds of cups and spoons manually. When they became confident, they started it as a business named “ABC”. The manufacturing involves simple processes like preparing the concoctions, molding by hand and by machines and placing them in an oven. It is a zero-waste, biodegradable, no plastic venture. Even if the person throws it into the environment, it gets dissolved within 40 minutes and gets converted to manure. I think the success of this business is due to the disasters caused by plastic. They have started this business at just the right time when the government has banned the use of plastics and hotels and supermarkets are looking for an alternative.
