Entrepreneurs starting home-based food companies typically have questions about all aspects of their chosen business. That’s especially true in highly specialized areas, such as freeze drying. In this video, an Idaho-based YouTuber tackles common questions about packaging freeze-dried candy.

The first issue is what type of bag or container to use. The video’s host uses kraft/Mylar stand-up pouches with a window to package own his freeze-dried candy brand and fills the pouches by hand.

The video offers suggestions on where to buy bags and how much candy to put in each. The host covers labeling concerns, including nutritional information, ingredients, and allergens, as well. Weighing, expiration dates, batch numbers, pricing, and storing products prior to packaging are also covered.

Viewers will benefit from reviewing the video’s written description, which provides links to packaging supplies and equipment, including a thermal printer for ingredient labels.
