The business world has long appreciated the value of trust: people are ready to pay more for a known brand as it represents the trust shaped throughout years. Today intelligent companies sell trust: they know well that once their customer feels cheated, they will lose them, and most probably not only them. An error in weighing a product in a shop or market means the customer will not want to go back there again. Interruptions to water or energy supply at home?
