Problem Statement

Natural Soy Products is based out of Brooklyn, IA. They are a smaller, more locally known company supplying soy based products. The products range from basic degreasers and cleaners to hydraulic oil, and everything in-between. The problem that Natural Soy presented us with is that they needed a third party to test their soy based graffiti remover, and give them un-biased data to present to potential customers. Natural Soy needed a third party to test the product to create an un-biased opinion on the capabilities of the product. The testing did not cost the company very much, and the results of the study may allow them to have a greater selling point when trying to get the product on the market.
