Seven Easy Steps to Custom Blending Success
Step #1: Consultation
We’ll sit down with you to discuss your custom blending project. We’ll ask you questions such as:
- Do you need help preparing an existing formula or creating a new one?
- How much product do you need us to make?
- Will this product be sold in a retail environment or foodservice only?
- How would you like this packaged?
- What do you estimate annual volumes to be?
Step #2: Examination
We’ll take the learnings from our discussion and develop an action plan, including product, label, and packaging recommendations along with a timeline of deliverables
Step #3: Experimentation
After the action plan and timeline is approved, our team of food scientists will produce samples for sensory testing. Once samples have been approved and you provide us with estimated volumes as well as your choice of labels and packaging, we can provide you with a project estimate
Please note that this custom blend belongs to you and you alone, and we’ll make this particular formula exclusively for only you.
Step #4 : Information
At your request, we can provide Nutritional and product data for your custom blend to ensure governmental and retail compliance.
Step #5: Production
We’ll begin manufacturing your product in our controlled environment on site at our facility in Jefferson, Louisiana.
- Before product can be placed into the production schedule, all custom labels and packaging must be at our facility
- Product will be packaged in the format agreed upon
- Product can be made in batches from 100 to 3,500 pounds, based on your specific needs
Step #6: Transportation
The finished product can be shipped to a destination of your choice, or, if you choose, you can pick it up directly from our location and handle delivery separately.
Step # 7: Satisfaction
Our goal is to exceed your expectations. We don’t do “projects”, we create long-term business relationships based on mutual respect and trust.
We’d love to begin that journey with you today!
