Steps to Start

The section contains information about the basic steps to starting a specialty food business. While each specialty food business is unique and subject to specific product requirements, this section outlines the overall process. The steps are grouped by topic. Keep in mind that each topic effects the others: your product type and packaging will effect your labels; the ingredients to make your product will effect your cost and production plans.
