How would you go about making a rtd brand?
WE NEED HELP, PLEASE.We own and operate a small mobile food truck business.We are needing someone to look at our business and tell if we are doing the right things or not.We make everything fresh and wholesome. We attend as many of the local market and events as we can. Things have been going well so far this year, but we are very uncertain about next year and what it will bring. I did send a message a while ago and heard nothing back, which I was disappointed at. We have tried seeking help locally but they let us down. We both work very hard and have invested in the business fairly heavily. We need someone to talk to who understands what we do and can advise with an unbiased opinion. We look forward to hearing from you soon.Ian & Janet Sturt
I own a takeaway business in a small town and I am struggling financially due to massive drops in sales. However overall those in our town in the food industry are experiencing the same. What can I do to get people into my shop and increase sales! First time business owner.
We make native rau and real food fermented Tī (more commonly known as kombucha but have moved away from the kupu, because it’s culturally inappropriate as its Japanese still use today for a Inu completely opposite, clear misrepresentation of their Reo… so we are making the changes necessary to move away from the kupu… a few patai..Tuatahi, how to we now market our Inu with a changed named which no one knows or understands what we are.. any suggestions would be great.Tuarua, how do we market our product when we create in a Rongoaa space with Rongoaa rau and tikanga. We are interacting with 2 opposing Mauri, how do we seperate the 2 Mauri.Tuatoru….. lastly how do we price our Inu, we have won bronze medals for 2 Inu in the outstanding nz food producer awards, we also had all our Inu be finalists in the anz Artisan awards.. we are currently the only ones offering real foods with Native rau.. most use Tī ora tea bags or fruit tea bags to flavour, but we wanted to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on Papatuuaanuku so we only use, plants, ti rau, Putiputi and hua rakau to flavour so it can be taken and returned. We are currently stocked 6 stockists, we agreed on a shitty wholesale price just to get our product out there, we had only traded a full month before covid hit.. but our brand is slowly getting out and we would like to know how to price accordingly.
How can I produce my sauce on a larger scale so that I can distribute nationwide?I am council registered and sell food to the public via preorder for take away, once a week. Based on the feedback and reviews received, the sauce we pour over our food and supply on its own, is very sought after across NZ and in AU. We would like to bring our costs down and increase our sauce sales. Kia ora

Hi! I’ve ran coffee stations in cafes for a few years before having my first child, we understand the constant demand for delicious coffee, so me and my partner have decided to start our own coffee trailer business. This week we have bought a trailer platform and my partner is going to custom build the cabin structure (we are at the very start, still collecting materials).. First I wanted to ask because we bought this trailer through a Facebook sale can we still claim it as a business expense with no receipt? And if you could give any advice or know any great resources for information for start up mobile coffee vans, any suggestions or help with start up business costs etc would be greatly appreciated :)
My wife and I are launching a niche, bottled coffee beverage with both ready-to-drink and concentrate options. We are producing in-house at a relatively small scale to begin with. Besides attending farmers markets and events, how should we approach the retail market?
Our business plans to sell drinking chocolate powder online, to our networks and potentially overseas. We have a supplier of our product where we buy in bulk 3kg bags although we are torn between repacking the bags into smaller bag or by simply relabelling the 3kg bags with our own labels and company name on it. The first option would require us to go through MPI Regulations like setting up Food Control plan etc. and we don’t want to go into that because we are just starting and we have minimal cost and it is only homebased on our small rental property. I hope you can help us on this. What would be the best option to get us started ASAP? Once we have decided on our product we plan to invite friends to resell it so they can have a profit too. Our business aims to share and create more business to others hence we need help on the pricing too.
