Are you looking to own and grow – or – absorb a proven in-demand commercial food manufacturing plant? On offer is Lana’s Garden Pty Ltd, from humble beginnings, transformed from a home-based weekend market-oriented venture, into a genuine, scale-able, leverage-able, and desirable brand. Lana’s Garden comes with all intellectual property, systems, and the equipment, to take the business to the next level.
The strategic decision of creating a full commercial space and employees was a huge step. Lana knew that such a decision would require a large investment in cash and time, it also meant that her sales trajectory would plateau while focus and energy were directed at infrastructure. This effort has paid off, as sales have been maintained (even though COVID-19 restrictions) and the business is now poised to grow for the right buyer.
The proof of the rhubarb is in the eating, and 10 years of sustained business expansion shows there is a good product to market fit. The opportunity now exists for a sales and marketing-oriented entrepreneur, or an existing player in the food and manufacturing industry to take this base of hard work and transform the sales and distribution systems to drive profits into the future.
The key features of the business are:
• A rhubarb product range that is healthy, tasty, and natural
• A rhubarb product made without preservatives and artificial ingredients
• A niche Australian made boutique homemade condiment- unique and different
• A variety of product sizing and product lines
• Developed giftware options
• A list of online recipes to give customers ideas on making the most of their purchase
• 10 years of goodwill with regular online retail customers and retailers
• A documented process HACCP certified
• A developed eCommerce website for online orders, B2C and B2B
• Top class commercial kitchen spaces that are actually in demand for use by other businesses
• A genuine Social media list of 4k followers over 2 platforms
