A must for specialty food startups

This is a practical and smart podcast, especially if you are an emerging specialty food brand looking to get on shelf at retail. Alli has a positive and engaging style, and the show has led me to additional industry resources that I can leverage as I start my business. Highly recommend.

So much good info and teaching!

Alli knows the specialty food industry inside and out and is a great teacher. This podcast gives so much information that can’t be found anywhere else, but it’s easy to take in and implement. If you have a packaged food product business, this is well worth your time to listen to and take notes on.

An invaluable resource for packaged food entrepreneurs

I’ve worked in the Natural and Specialty Food industries since 2004, and have to say Alli knows her stuff. She has gathered an incredible group of experts and built an amazing resource for her clients, presenting the material in a modern and engaging way. I only wished this podcast existed at an earlier time in my career. Highly recommended!
