Starting a business can be a frustrating process. But for those of you brave enough to venture into the food industry, expect to be faced with some unique challenges.



Who will regulate my product - the FDA, USDA, or state?

What type of packaging is affordable, attractive, and will preserve the quality of my product?

Where can I find an ingredient supplier who is willing to work with a company the size of mine?

When I'm ready to scale-up my production process, will anything stay the same?

Why is it so hard to find someone who can help me through this process?
