Who wouldn’t like thinking about food all day?

Not so tasty but they are essential ingredients that have to be factored in.

So what’s the secret to launching a new product?
Aside from hard work and perseverance, it’s simple – you need to understand the big picture and develop a sound strategy that takes your product from small potatoes to “wow, why didn’t I think of that?!”.
