Product reviews from those that have bought our 1st edition:

This book is a perfect guide for anyone that wants to pursue a path and career in the food and beverage industry. Most other books that market themselves as “The Best”, always have confusing steps which makes the reader nervous in breaking in, but the authors of this book clearly lay out the do’s and don’ts that everyone must understand before putting their foot in the door of this lucrative and money making business. I have learned a lot from reading this book and so will you!

This book is an excellent introduction to manufacturing food . I found the information to be concise and in depth. This book would be very valuable for someone at the planning stage of food manufacturing . I found it to be honest, insightful and inspiring . The authors are direct and quote statistics on the likelihood of success – whilst also advising to abandon ship early on if marketing results are not as good as expected. Adhering to these red flags are important and often overlooked with a zealous attitude. I agree with the authors in that it would be best to fully research all the areas discussed in book, including marketing , testing and ingredients supply chain – proceeding in a methodical way.  I would give this book 5 Stars. There are not many books on this subject and this information will be very valuable to budding entrepreneurs.
