How We Can Help
So you have a great recipe and you want to get serious about it. Congratulations! Whether you’re a professional chef, a restaurateur, or an individual who wants to go beyond making your “special sauce” for family and friends who clamor for it, Ashman Manufacturing & Distributing Company may be able to help.
Here’s How it Works:
- After we both sign non-disclosure forms, you’ll need to send us a sample so we can evaluate and test it.
- Next, we’ll need an 85-gallon recipe from you. If you need us to covert your recipe to this quantity, we can do that for you.
- Next, you’ll need to have a nutritional, ingredient and allergen statement done. The cost for this is a one-time expense to make sure your label meets FDA requirements.
- Finally, we'll make the recipe, resulting in a minimum of 510 gallons, or six (6) 85-gallon batch runs. This would give you approximately 390 cases of 12-12 ounce bottles or 300 cases of 12-16 ounce bottles. These quantities may be different depending upon whether your recipe is a barbecue sauce, a salsa, a hot sauce, or something else.
For specific prices for the stages of this process, please contact us. It typically requires an investment of $8,000 to bring your product to the marketplace.
Here at Ashman, we are a full-service company and we can help you with every step necessary to make your product ready to sell on the market. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you.
