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.

I couldn't say more positive things about the care and interest Bernard has in understanding my passion and also taking the time to really get a handle on my future goals and vision. His business acumen, vocabulary, awareness, and common sense approaches seem to be extremely sound and solid. I have found him to be dependable and most importantly to me I always feel he is in your corner and a real advocate. Everyone is looking for their share and piece of the pie and he wants to make sure you have yours and then some. He has been more of a partner and friend whom I can rely on to give it to me straight and also help me safely navigate around the corner and avoid the pitfalls. It is often said that time is money. He has saved me some of the former and a lot of the latter. I feel fortunate that I found The Greater Goods and Bernard. He has played an instrumental part as my business is transitioning and growing.

After a consultation with Bernard, I learnt about options that I never knew existed and thus I feel more confident and assured by Bernard and his team's expertise, connections, and their determination to help me, and all their customers.He shared with me so much valuable information that made all the difference in my decision. He's not only kind and knowledgable but both him and his team go that extra mile to make sure you're happy and successful.I especially value the fact that Bernard and his company only work with companies that create products that are in integrity, that aren't just health focussed, but actually care about what goes into their products and thus into their customers' bodies.Clean ingredients, sustainability and good work ethics are crucial.If your ingredients are clean and your mission is to be a solution to this endless world of toxic products and you too really care about what goes into your body and that of your customers, this is the company to work with because they'll help you get from point A to Z in a manner that suits your business and your needs.Thank you Bernard and team Greater Goods for being one of the rare exceptional companies to really care about your customers and go that extra mile to help us and our customers.Highly recommended!
