"Private Label"? Baking cookies to be resold by another brand?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have been approached by a company who manufacturers a specific ingredient and presently sells iced cookies utilizing their ingredient.  Their baker is retiring and they have asked me if I presently bake (or am open to the idea of baking) for a private label. 

 

My guess is that they would provide me with their "secret recipe", the special ingredient and design specifications.  I would then produce cookies that they would resell on their website/venues under their own private label. 

 

I have absolutely no experience in this realm and wonder if any of you all do.  Any personal experiences appreciated!

 

As an aside: I appreciate that there are various opinions on this site about home-based/licensed bakeries and I will certainly seek input from the appropriate authorities about whether my particular license/inspection allows me to enter into a "private label" production agreement.  For the time-being, let's assume that that part works out and leave it out of this discussion. :)

 

Thanks!! :)

I would have a meeting with them to find out what work is entailed. How much time will u need to put aside for this? Do they need a specific amount everytime? Would you be able to accomplish the orders on your own? And would it be feasible or do you need to hire someone to help you? You just want to make sure that it doesn't take over your life where ur baking 24/7. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity though. Good luck!
