You have a great product or idea. And maybe no one else is doing it.

You’re going for it, right?

Hang on a moment. It’s time to figure a few things out.

It’s time to ask yourself the right questions:

What are the real costs of starting a successful food business?
Do I understand the rules and regulations for labeling?

Feeling overwhelmed at the thought of answering these questions on your own?
