Looking to have your own recipe bottled?

Here’s what you need to know to pack your product for resale…

People rave about your secret-recipe sauce. So much so, that you’re thinking about having it bottled so that people can enjoy it at home. Garden Complements has helped hundreds of customers transform their recipe into a formulation that can be kettle-cooked, and professionally pack it in your own custom-labeled packaging.

It’s called Contract Packing. You own the recipe; Garden Complements bottles it for retail.
