Having developed recipes for market, specifically: specialty jams, jellies, specialty preserves, pickles (dill and bread & butter), spice mix blends, granola, specialty spice mixes and coffee, they need a strategy on how to bring the brand from the web to store shelves in Canada and the United States.
