Episode 2: So You Want to Start a Food Start-Up?

There’s more to starting a food company than a new idea or a family recipe. Creating a food-related product that is scalable, in a market segment that isn’t already saturated can be difficult – no matter your connection to the industry. Even if you get that far, selling into stores and gaining market traction is another hurdle to tackle. During this episode, Dan Staackmann, founder and CEO of Upton’s Naturals and Paul Tasner, CEO of PulpWorks, Inc., will discuss how they got their start, how they scaled their business, and what the roadmap looks like for a successful food start-up.
