Get your brand wholesale ready for grocery and online marketplaces with Food Business Success™
Use this time to uplevel your product and brand to be shelf ready from FDA compliant labels to strategies to speak with buyers and be ready to answer their questions.
Now is the time to up-level your product and brand and get onto store shelves desperate for product.
54% of food consumption happened outside of the home pre-COVID19. So, now what? A much greater percentage of our “stomach” purchases are going to grocery stores who are faced with shortages from "mainstream" food manufacturers. Local growers, ranchers and producers have new opportunities to get on store shelves as grocery stores. Ready to get your product in front of buyers? Make sure you have a professional sell sheet including photo touch up, a spreadsheet with all the information required by different grocery stores including pallet size and weight, barcodes and MSRP. Also included is a checklist and overview on how to put your best foot forward when approaching buyers.
Ready to move into wholesale and larger retail? Don't risk throwing hundreds of dollars in the trash for non-compliant labels (let alone potential fines). I have seen it happen. More than once. Invest in a label review that includes FDA compliance for layout, nutrition facts panel, claims, barcodes and more. I also include a messaging and branding review based on my years of experience helping products leap off the shelf into customers hands. A label review is for one type of product and up to three varieties. For example, you make a jam with multiple flavors. Additional varieties are $50 each. Includes a 30 minute call to review my recommendations.
Knowing your numbers and being able to make better decisions during this time is crucial to staying in business! You MUST have a rolling cash flow to know exactly when you need to borrow money or even close the doors. We will also discuss the difference between cash flow and profitability and ways you can increase your cash flow during this crucial time.
Need answers now? Let's go over your business model, pricing, branding, labels, licenses, food safety, product positioning, messaging, sales and marketing and all your questions in this 90 minute recorded zoom strategy session (or split it into two 45 minute sessions) scheduled at your convenience.
