How to Get Insurance for Your Food Business

December 31st, 2021|Categories: Getting Started|0 Comments

There are a lot of reasons companies need insurance. They've got to protect their logo or company name, make sure they're computers are covered, and don't forget workman's compensation. But, for food producers, you've got to protect something way more important than logos and computers. You need to protect your customers. Yep - the people who enjoy your products every day. This is why product liability insurance is so important. I recommend getting it before approaching retailers to carry your product. Why you need insurance: 1. Bad ingredients If you've got recalled ingredients or spoiled ingredients that were used in [...]

And since it's almost the start of the new year, I'm writing this post so you know the metrics that are important to evaluate. Why do I do this? Analyzing your business provides you with insights you would never see if you simply handed over a profit & loss statement to your tax accountant and called it a day. For example: What was your most popular flavor? Which retailers [...]

Fast & Easy Food Business Plan Template [Free Download]

November 28th, 2021|Categories: Getting Started|0 Comments

Deciding to start a food business isn't something to be taken lightly. You commit thousands of hours to learning, testing, number crunching, and eating (my favorite part). It takes over your dining room, basement, and garage. In summary: starting a food business is your life. It's been my life since I was 15 years old. I started selling cookies, moved to energy bars, and now I sell super-premium mustard. While some of my businesses were more like hobbies, I learned a lot from one to the next. And one things always stayed true: I had a business plan for every food [...]

November 15th, 2021|Categories: Uncategorized|0 Comments

How to Land a Large Purchase Order. I just shipped four pallets of product to a large retailer. While I haven't been paid yet (that'll be a fun walk to the bank), I wanted to write the process I used to land larger purchase orders and how I fulfilled them (which basically is a crash course on how to do it). For me, it's a review on what went right and what went wrong. For you, it's a chance to see what's possible beyond farmer's markets and small-town retailers. It's by no means easy, but at least you'll [...]

5 Strategies I’m Using to Grow My Food Business 20% this Year

November 6th, 2021|Categories: Getting Started|0 Comments

While it's not quite summer, we're almost there. Heck, it's 91 degrees in Vermont right now. So, practically summer. And for me, that means I actually start to sell some mustard. (Who's with me? I'm talking about those awful months from January - April if you live in a wintery climate). Anyway, I digress.... This year has been an interesting time for Green Mountain Mustard. Year-to-date, my sales are down three-fold. Yes, 300% down. It's incredible, actually. The drop in my sales comes from three things: 1. Loss of focus due to the commercial kitchen we opened in January. 2. The [...]
