How do I get my food or beverage product into stores?

That is the million-dollar question. The first thing you need is a product that’s aligned with consumer demands.

How much money do I need to start a food business?

A good round number is $100,000. That pays for packaging, ingredients and guidance through the entire process, including sourcing, forecasting, finding the right co-manufacturer, meeting regulatory requirements and much more. The greater goods process takes 6 to 8 months. We’re with you every step of the way, from big ideas to store shelves.

What is involved in starting a food business?

Starting a food business is rarely a part-time hobby. Like any business, it requires investment and planning. If you don’t know the food industry well, there are a lot of steps involved and two really important things to know.
