    Launching own brand?

    In the process of launching a consumer food product and just curious if anyone else here has taken a food product from their kitchen to market, and if so, what their advice and lessons learned are?

    For reference, its basically a non-allergen dairy alternative drink, intended for regional distribution with national expansion within 6 months.

    Finding most of the current difficulty is packaging (HPP options locally) and navigating various food laws for production. 2nd biggest issue is co-packers with truly nut/allergen free facilities (and not yet ready to invest in our own dedicated facility).

    Let the stories begin!

    "Your Pro Kitchen" provides professional, inspected, food processing / kitchen facilities to small businesses on a monthly basis. I've used them in Tampa for a Food Truck and other members included small bakers, caterers, etc.

    They have a facility in Ft Lauderdale.

    Thanks DaveB, we're actually launching in NYC area first and the facility has to be a 100% nut/allergen free facility (the biggest hurdle so far!)...there seems to be an endless supply of kitchens to rent but almost none can guarantee the nut free part.
