Monday Madness – Is that the official business email?

The other day on my weekly shop at Tesco I found some Thai brand cocoa cereal and thought I have to try it – at 20 Baht a packet it was no big expense, unlike buying any imported cereal where you almost pay double what you would pay in the country of origin.

So the next day I sat down to eat a bowl of my Copp cereal, and as you do when you are eating cereal I started to read the back of the packet.  Given the majority of it was in Thai it was quite a quick read but then I noticed the company details.  With a name like European Snack Food Co it is quite easy to imagine what they might produce.

But what I did wonder was why a company would spend money on designing packaging and making their product look professional…

Copp Cereal package

Doesn’t that look professional!

…then not invest in an email address but instead choose to use company.name@gmail.com, or hotmail.com, yahoo.com etc.

Euro snack email address

really eurosnack@hotmail.com

Maybe it’s just a little bit cheaper, or maybe when English isn’t your native language it doesn’t matter so much?
