For August, Entrepreneur.com.ph is featuring Divisoria, one of the city of Manila’s most popular destinations and recognizable landmarks. For many, “Divi” is the marketplace for everything from food to electronics, all at bargain prices. For resourceful and money-savvy entrepreneurs, it’s a suppliers’ haven.
Every entrepreneur will tell you that the packaging is as important as the product. How would anyone notice your food product, no matter how good it is, if the packaging is not eye-catching?
With all the food businesses becoming more competitive, your packaging material can be your first line of marketing to get your products noticed by the public.
Packaging is also one of the greatest problems that a food entrepreneur encounters. It needs to be a balance of being eye-catching without overpowering the food product inside. But more than that, a more pressing concern for food entrepreneurs is finding the right supplier for packaging - someone who has the volume and offers a variety of designs.
Our advice? Head to Sto. Cristo St. in Divisoria if you are looking for specific packaging and baking supplies for your business. One of the biggest shops there is Best Way General Merchandising. They have everything that any aspiring entrepreneur will ever need to launch their own baking business from candy sprinkles to cake toppers to the smallest box and the largest foil and plastic container.
