I sought assistance from The Business of Food team to launch my BBQ sauce business in 2018. Their expertise helped me to understand my target market, effectively utilize a commercial kitchen, prepare a business plan, define my marketing objectives and ensure I met critical industry requirements. Without that knowledge and expertise, I would not have been able to adequately prepare my business for launch. As a result of specialised coaching and mentoring, I felt capable and competent to enter an industry of which I had no prior knowledge. My business is now going from strength to strength and I could not have achieved this without help.

I attended the Business of Food Expo in March 2018 as I had an idea for a food product. It was here that I met Jane Del Rosso and her team at The Business of Food. It was a fantastic event and inspired me to get going with my food idea. I do not have a background in the food industry but Jane has guided me through the process of setting up a food business, including how to identify my target market, where to get ingredients, how to approach retailers and distributors, on how to price my product and so on. With help from the TBOF team as well as my food safety consultant, I now produce my gelato under Dairy Food Safe regulation and sell my product in a number of premium retail outlets as well as delivering direct to consumers. My journey from “Recipe to Retail” in less than a year would definitely not have happened without the help of Jane and The Business of Food. I cannot recommend the services they provide highly enough.

I started with an idea thinking it might not work. But my first meeting with Jane made me realise that my idea can be turned into reality - as long as I stay motivated and complete my business plan. Jane gave me a lot of resources that I can work with and I really do appreciate her professional advice. Without her help I would never have got anything off the ground and I think she should open up a kitchen in Sydney

Fro Po evolved from a simple idea to a viable business over the course of approximately 9 months. Throughout the initial planning period we created our business plan and conducted both product research and development. We then moved into a commercial kitchen space while in the final stages of product development, as we felt it was important to understand how to upscale our production before attempting to produce on a larger scale
