Tony Ong was a marketer with an idea – an idea which he was unable to implement without owning his own factory. His idea was an original recipe for a salad dressing that everyone agreed was sensational. He just needed someone to manufacture and bottle it for him.
Tony approached Wisemate Foods to negotiate on the contract filling of his Café 26 Original salad dressing. It was agreed that his recipe would remain confidential and that Wisemate Foods would contract fill the salad dressing into 375 mL designer bottles with the Café 26 label and a tamper evident seal.
The only requirement for Tony was to distribute the salad dressing to independent outlets around Western Australia, such as growers’ marts, fresh fruit and vegetable stores and speciality delicatessens.
So successful has the Café 26 Original salad dressing been, that he has developed a number of follow up products for contract filling by Wisemate Foods, such as Café 26 Tangy, Café 26 Caesar Salad Dressing and Tony’s Premium Blend, in both 375 mL bottles and 25 gram sachets.
As long as a client orders no less than a 400 kg batch at a time, Wisemate Foods is able to carry out the contract filling of any sauce, salad dressing or spread, subject to the physical requirements of the processing machinery involved.
If the client needs assistance on the product’s formulation or labelling, nutrition and food standards advice, Wisemate Foods’ product development team will be happy to work through the options with prospective clients.
