I talk to a lot of small specialty food companies in doing what I do. When the conversation turns to how to grow their business, I consistently hear comments that point to gaps in their ability to easily find resources and experts to get critical things done.
A new site called The Gourmet Business Directory has just launched, which aims to fill those gaps with an online resource of suppliers and consultants necessary for starting and growing a food business.
The Gourmet Business Directory has set its sights on becoming the go-to resource for food manufacturers who are looking for food brokers, distributors, co-packers, labeling companies, packaging suppliers and fulfillment vendors, among other types of businesses.
There is a nominal fee for vendor companies to be included in the directory, however the online directory is free for food companies looking to find helpful resources.
Gourmet Business Directory was started by Ryan Montague, a management consultant specializing in brand and business development with an exclusive focus on gourmet and specialty food.
