“Product To Passion" Seminar! Successful Food Entepreneurs Inspire Fledgeling Kosher Food Business Owners!

Jesse Blonder, CKCA and Irwin Dayan, Exceed Network
The CKCA  /  Exceed Network co-sponsored spring gathering of over 50 participants was buzzing with discussion and questions focused on strategies to bring kosher home-made foods, marketed and sold to the next level of manufacturing, distribution and profitAttendees, who bake and cook,  brought an array of samples of delicious products, all home made, yet mass produced on a small scale and already selling to the public.  Business ventures ready to expand included cream pies, bottled low-fat, low sugar and unusual salad dressings, chocolate dipped fruit pops, cinnamon buns and more.  
The panel’s winning combination of Eleanor Maleh, CKCA graduate of  Mazza &More Catering, Elizabeth Alpert of Gefilteria, Channalee Fischler Schlisser of The Challah Fairy and Jen King of Liddabits Sweets dynamically shared their journeys to success as well as their most practical advise on how to establish, brand and expand a profitable kosher food business, along with the challenges of balancing work and family life.

With an opportunity to network and hungry for the next seminar we found participants' most pressing questions to be directed at, finding facilities for manufacturing, how to move from home business to mass production,  taking the “leap” to expand and how to determine product shelf life.
