We don’t know if you’ve heard already, but there is yet another crisis on our horizon: The Netherlands is in danger of becoming a nacho-state. The use of fried nacho chips in nightlife has become the rule rather than the exception. There is not a single South American cargo ship entering the harbour of Rotterdam that does not contain jalapeño peppers or sour cream hidden in banana boxes. Avocados are mashed into guacamole in secret Dutch cellars, making them easier to distribute all over Europe. The police are in over their head unraveling the most exotic variants of this once innocent, triangle-shaped, corn product.
‘A small country is at the center
of a billion-dollar Nachos industry.‘
Cartels set up own nacho line
Where some people see a crisis, we see an opportunity. One we wanted to share with our network. That is why we gathered some of the smartest people in The Netherlands to form their own cartels in our Cmotions and The Analytics Lab Nachos data & analytics Hackathon. Each participating cartel was challenged to set up an entire nachos line from producing, transporting, and distributing nachos.
We knew we invited some of the smartest people in The Netherlands, but still they managed to amaze us with all their creativity and spicy solutions. But as with everything, only one cartel can be the winner. For this years hackathon the fight was fierce, so we are very proud to announce that the fantastic data lovers from DPG Media were the ones who setup the most profitable nacho line.
Congratulations DPG Media!
