Already Baked Goods - "Wanted" Contract Bakers
Are you a baker looking for quality low carbohydrate, low sugar, diabetic friendly or gluten free ingredients? We need your help! We are presently looking for contract bakers to meet this need using our ingredients like LC-Flours, LC-Sugars, and LC-Baking Products. If you know a baker, own a bakery, or desire to start a low carb bake shop, we will help and support you.
Here are some common questions about baking with LC-Foods
Will I need my own commercial kitchen?
Not necessarily, but you do need a food safe environment for baking food products. This space will need to be inspected by local food inspectors and authorities for safety and food safe practices. Catering facilities, restaurants, and bakeries are usually already setup for this type of enterprise, so these would be the first place to look.
Some people can arrange to be inspected in their home by the health department of their town. We would want a letter from them that they have inspected you, and you are food safe.
When I use your ingredients for baking, can I sell my products direct to the public?
Yes, we would encourage local and regional sales as much as possible. The local county will be a protected territory for you. We will not sell wholesale ingredients to another bakery in your immediate area. You would be encouraged to have a coffee shop, or retail selling store as an outlet for the local market. Here in North Carolina, low carbers come from over 100 miles to purchase low carb baked goods from an area store.
Can I open an online store or shipping service and sell products made with your ingredients outside my area, on the Internet, through magazines etc?
Yes, we want you to succeed, and helping your business grow by having customers order from you and shipping to them is good business as well. These are your back door sales and vital to your business growth as well. We believe in empowering our co-bakers and want them to find as many outlets as possible for their finished products.
Do you also provide customers to buy the products we bake?
Yes, the products you create and bake will be reviewed by us. If they are approved for our resale, we will also be a very good customer purchasing for our online store and for customers we have all over the world. We will also seek to setup drop shipping solutions direct from you to our customers. We are getting a large following even now in our early stages, so baked goods made with our flours and sugars are very much sought after by our customers and this grows daily.
Are there labeling requirements?
All food products have strict federal FDA labeling requirements. We can help you with this, because we have nutritional labeling software programming. As long as you follow these regulated guidelines, your labeling will be a breeze.
Do you have labeling requirements?
Yes, you will need to state that the ingredients you are using are LC-Foods ingredients and flour blends. We feel that branding with our logo will be in your best interest for your baked good product recognition. We will not be competing against you whatsoever, so using our logo and product ingredient identification will be advantageous to you and your business success. This will help you even more to promote your low carb baking business. The logo that has been developed has baked goods already on it, and comes in a single or a full color version, with the baked goods colorized. Your personal business branding can be added over the top of the logo if desired. Our graphic designer can incorporate this so your low carb logo will look unique.
Will you help us get additional business?
Yes, we will do everything we can to help you succeed in your business; this is a win-win situation, and your success is our success. Being one of the only bakers providing low carb baked goods will be your biggest asset. The customers will come, because the need is so great, and the supply is virtually
nonexistent. A specialized business really is valuable to the owner, because there is almost no competition. We own these web sites: www.lowcarbbaker.com & www.LCFoodsBakery.com These domains are undeveloped at this time, but in the future, these sites will be resource web sites where low carb interested people will locate and order from your low carb bakery and store as well.
What is your wholesale pricing and how will it work?
We will offer you wholsale pricing to help you with costs. Our intention here will be to empower and help make your baking enterprise as successful as possible with the support of our low carb ingredient products at the best price we can provide them to you for.
