I am super frustrated right now. I can't give you details on things. Sorry about that, I really hate being secretive. Honestly, I probably don't need to be discrete about this but until we move on I've decided it might be for the best.
The product we are intending to sell we can not find in Organic farm. CAN NOT! Here's the part that makes it extra frustrating, all the ingredients that go into making this product can be found in organic form. So why on earth are they not making this product in Organic form? And it isn't like this is the type of product or business is rare. There is probably one of these business in your town and if you live in California there is probably quite a few near you. I'm nearly positive that nearly everyone who reads this blog has consumed this food.
I don't want to open just another one of these businesses, I want to open one that will be special, that will make us different in a market that I fear is already a tad saturated. I'm worried that since we are a tad behind in getting into this type of business that we will get lost in the shuffle unless we can offer something different, something better ... ORGANIC!
Organic products are not trivial or irrelevant in my opinion. Organic is not going to get less popular, it will only get more popular. So why on earth would there not be a company manufacturing this product in Organic form?
To further make things difficult, I don't know if we can legally make it ourselves. I am sure we could if we pulled the proper health department permits and bought the equipment to make it, but that really makes things difficult cause it will add a LOT to our overhead. It just isn't practical to add all the equipment and added employees to this business if we have to make our own version in Organic form.
If we owned multiple stores, I'm sure I could find a company to make it for us. But with a start up business we won't require enough product to convince a company to make it for us. So I'm frustrated and don't know what to do.
