Owning a Food Business: We’ve Been There

Whether it’s navigating the tax code, managing vendor relationships or calling on food retailers, the owners of RL Food Testing Laboratory have been there. We were once food manufacturers and have a first-hand understanding of the ins and outs of the business. We know how exciting (and a bit scary) starting a food business can be – especially given the uncertainty of the marketplace. We know that budgets can be tight and retailer’s deadlines even tighter. We also know what food retailers’ expectations are and how you can best prepare yourself and your company to sell to them. We know, because we lived it.

We Understand Your Budget Constraints

We realize that budgets can be tight for large food manufacturers as well as new start-up companies; that is why we offer the lowest prices available. We keep our overhead low, so our savings are passed on to you – our customers.

We Share Your Sense of Urgency

We can remember a time when we had only two weeks to prepare for a line review. You need it fast, so we offer a special 24 hour turn around for most non-laboratory services.
A lot of our customers are running their business as a side job and we know that nights and weekends are the only time you can take care of your company needs. For that reason, we are here for you 7 days a week should you need to contact us.

We Are the Experts

Not only does our management team have experience in the food business, but our laboratory team has two microbiological chemists on staff with over 30 combined years of experience in biochemistry, microbiology, food science and food R&D; and each member of our marketing team brings a wealth of knowledge with over 50 combined years of experience.
