From kitchen to co-man

From Commercial Kitchen to Co-man: What to do to Scale Successfully

Wednesday, July 22 2021, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Online Event

Join us over the lunch hour as we welcome back our resident co-manufacturing experts Jim Costello and John Castillo from Food Ops LLC as they talk about the critical steps involved in scaling your formula from a commercial kitchen to a co-man. Once you've found a co-man you want to work with and are getting a contract in place, it is a crucial juncture to learn the steps you need to take for success in scaling with your co-man partner. This includes processing adjustments, ingredient and packaging ordering and spec management, quality and safety protocols, the impact to COGs, and post-production plans (i.e. where's your product getting stored and shipped to?). Join us as we demystify this *critical* step in any company's scaling journey and prepare for success in the long run.
