| | Is gluten testing result necessary? (Help)
I'm Tan, just launched a home-baking cake business specializing in gluten-free and/or dairy -free cakes and less sweet (Japanese taste) cakes, based in Hurstville, NSW this month, August 2012. I really need advise from entrepreneurs who run gluten-free cakes business in Australia.
A little introduction about my business:
" I cater coeliac friends who are craving for super yummy dietary cakes, such as gluten-free and/or dairy-free, and for those who love desserts but can't have too sweet/too much sugar, less sweet cakes (Japanese taste) cakes.
Cakes are wonderful as they taste as delicious as normal cakes and they are hand-made, so if you are looking for something different and "super special" then this is perfect for you!
Proud to serve the needs of people who go for dietary foods.
I'm planning to advertise my cakes on a coeliac community magazine, but as new advertiser a gluten testing result is required. I found out from the quotation that I got from service provider, 1 sample will cost over $100 plus the admin fee around $30 per invoice. That amount isn't small amount for a small and newly launched business, is it necessary to get a gluten testing result for a business which making and selling gluten-free cakes?
I have a very limited budget at the moment and probably need to buy some more equipment, tools, cake tins/moulds, etc..etc..so every penny need to be wise-spent.
Thank you for your attention.
