Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Food Safety and Quality Assurance: Contamination during processing or packaging could compromise the safety and quality of the food products. Inadequate quality control measures may result in a drop in the quality of the products reaching the market.

    • BD Star Agro Food’s Strategy: BD Star implements strict hygiene practices in its factory, and kept proper equipment to minimize contamination risks.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Failure to comply with food safety standards and regulations can lead to legal consequences. Non-compliance with accurate and transparent labeling may result in regulatory penalties.
    • BD Star Agro Food’s Strategy: The products that are being sold by BD Star Agro Foods do not need BSTI approval as per the regulations. BD Star is packaging and selling its products under the Bhojon Roshik name and they have patented the name and logo. 
  • Supply Chain Risks: Dependence on a limited number of suppliers might disrupt the supply chain, which in turn may affect production. Besides that volatility in the prices of raw materials may impact profit margins.
    • BD Star Agro Food’s Strategy: The business is collecting the required raw goods from multiple suppliers of the wholesale market. They have a good connection with the supply chain. As the business is selling premium products, a rise in the raw materials will allow the business to increase the price of final products. This will mitigate such issue to a tolerable point.
  • Market and Consumer Risks: Changes in consumer preferences or trends may impact the demand for specific products. Intense competition in the food industry can lead to price wars or loss of market share.
    • BD Star Agro Food’s Strategy: BD Star is currently providing 140+ products ranging from spices to snacks required in every household. Biniyog.io has done a market survey and found that its products have a good demand in the market and shops are stocking them every week.  
  • Logistical and Distribution Risks: Risks related to transportation, such as delays, damages, or temperature control failures affecting product quality. Difficulties in managing an effective distribution network may lead to stockouts or overstock situations. 
    • BD Star Agro Food’s Strategy: BD Star maintains an in-house delivery facility for delivering the products to multiple stores. 
  • Political instability: There might be some macroeconomic turmoil towards the end of 2023 before the general election. This may impact the business.

biniyog.io has done in-house analyses of the projected returns of the business and they are expected to be able to repay on time considering their cash flow.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. BD Star Agro Foods would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since BD Star Agro Foods will choose the items before biniyog.io buys them.

This is a necessary risk to ensure Shariah compliance of the transaction.

BD Star Agro Food will share a personal guarantee security cheque and installment cheques with biniyog.io. Moreover, a guarantor will be introduced in the contract to add an extra layer of security for the investors.
