We Begin By Listening
Typically, development of any new product begins your R&D or marketing department. They have an idea for a new product as part of their overall branding concept. We ask questions that help clearly identify any serviceable requirements for your cookie: Is a crispy piece or is it soft? Is the flavor profile sweet, or is a savory cookie something you crave? Are there any ingredient preferences or boundaries? What timeline, budget and performance requirements are in play? The more we know, the better results will be achieved.
Ultimately, we cooperatively develop a detailed specification for your branded product. We also cultivate a very thorough understanding of how your branded cookie will be manufactured, distributed, stored, and enjoyed.
We offer a variety of packaging configurations to meet your needs. Our capabilities include individually wrapped, tray, bag-in-box, bag and bulk. We welcome the opportunity to address your specific needs packaging needs and have the resources to make it happen.
