Claus Roeting (Osnabrück) had an oblique idea in the literal sense twelve years ago. Again and again it annoyed him that every time he ate his soup, he could not spoon it up properly. Therefore, he invented a slopped soup plate which you do not need to incline in order to clean up your plate. He got rid of 15,000 pieces of his first prototypes to individual consumers. Taking into account that these plates were not stackable, they could not be introduced in the catering trade.
Finally, twelve years later, Claus Roeting has solved this problem with the help of Ramón López Mera. The Spanish arrived as a trainee in the advertising company in Osnabrück, in order to insert two magical notches, one of them on the top and the other on the lower side. For over half a year, Roeting has been working on it. Now, this unusual plate can be stacked, a characteristic which had been criticized by the catering entrepreneurs until the present day.
Claus Roeting has invested more than 25,000 Euros in his invention. Now he has to find sufficient buyers to be profitable. In neither case he will let others waste his soup (the first 5,000 plates have already been ordered in the hope to become Osnabrücks soup´s king number one).
