The Original Habanero Shaker Brings the Heat

Joel Friant has become known as the creator of The Original Habanero Shaker and is an excelling entrepreneur. He was first acquainted with the “Fast Food Thai Concept” in the 1900s, and he even became known as “The Thai Guy.” Friant created the Original Habanero Shaker when he realized that there were no pure, tasty habanero shakers on the market. He wanted to share the habanero pepper with the world, so he created the Original Habanero Shaker that adds great flavor to any meal or dish. The shaker combines the perfect balance of heat and sweetness that most people can enjoy even if they do not like hot peppers.

Friant has traveled to Jamaica to sample different kinds of hot peppers, and he has marketed his Habanero shaker to many well-known grocery stores. He has also been successful I the real estate market, but his passion still lies in the food business and particularly in the chili pepper field.

Friant has created many concepts including the “Income Thermostat” and has become the author of many successful publications. He has educated through countless online seminars too. Friant also has a love for technology and has taken courses on Amazon and eBay marketing strategies.

The Original Habanero Shaker not only tastes great on food but it has health benefits as well. It adds a smoky, buttery flavor to anything that you put it on and it’s not as hot as it is in its natural form. When dried, the Habanero pepper milder and more flavorful. It contains a very high amount of capsaicin which is what causes your brain to release those feel-good hormones known as endorphins. These endorphins also fight pain in the body. The Habanero averages around 200,000 Scoville units on the Scoville heat scale which is really hot since the Jalapeno is only 4,000 units.

The Original Habanero Shaker does not contain any added ingredients such as additives or salts but is 100 percent Habanero pepper flakes. It is also gluten-free and sugar-free. You can even throw a shaker in your purse or bag, so you always have it.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco, President Of Bradesco

A Personal Profile of Luiz Carlos Trabuco
Luiz Carlos Trabuco began his career 48 years ago after completing a degree in philosophy from Fundacao Escola de Sociologia e Politica de Sao Paulo. He has devoted his career life working for Bradesco bank where he began working as a clerk and rose up the ranks to become the bank’s CEO.

As a long term employee of Bradesco bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco has held different positions within the company over the years. He joined the bank as a junior officer where he worked in that capacity up to 1984 when he became a senior official. His major breakthrough as a major manager in the bank came in March 1999 when he was promoted to the position of the vice president. He would later become the president of Grupo Bradesco, a subsidiary of Bradesco bank in March 2003. In 2009, Luiz Carlos Trabuco assumed the position of the bank’s CEO, a position he still holds.

What Future Plans Are There for Bradesco Bank?
For many years, Bradesco bank remained the largest private bank in Brazil until in 2009 when two financial institutions, Banco Itau and Unibanco, merged and overtook it. The bank’s headquarters are in Osasco, Sao Paulo. The bank continues to expand rapidly as it seeks to ensure its financial services are available to the majority of Brazilians. Currently, it boasts of 5,314 branches, 4,834 service branches, and 38,430 ‘Bradesco Expresso’ units under its name.

The biggest plan for Bradesco bank as it focuses on the future is the launch of its all-digital franchise unit named ‘Next’. The launch marked the first ever largest campaign by a leading South American company to come up with a service that seeks to rival those provided by financial technology startups in the area.

Using ‘Next’, the bank seeks to make its services accessible to the tech-savvy Brazilian youths and to drive its development and expansion plans. To ensure that project ‘Next’ is successful, the bank is partnering with leading global tech companies such as Apple Inc., Uber Technologies Ltd, and Microsoft Corporation to give its customers access to perks on various plans ranging from 40 reais ($6-12) per month. Offering such rates would mean that their services will be affordable to more people, since the rates would be significantly lower than those applicable in physical branches.
