I am meeting with the Agriculture and Marketing person in order to get my license to sell at markets and shows.
I understand most aspects of writing the ingredient label (list ingredients in the order of amount etc.) Here lies my problem: In doing an assorted box of six different flavors, the list gets so long it barely can fit on my label. Also, I make handmade chocolates with fine ingredients and no preservatives but when the label is complete, it looks like a "tome".
This is how I would like the label to look:
Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, fresh purees, butter
toasted nuts, colored cocoa butter
Do I need to do this:
Dark chocolate (cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter,soy lecitthin, vanilla); milk chocolate(sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, skimmed milk powder, soya lecithin, vanilla)
white chocolate( pure cane sugar, cocoa butter, full cream milk, lactose, soya lecithin, vanilla beans).......
and the same for each other ingredient.
I would appreciate any advice aon this.
I am in NYS, I produce in a rented commercial kitchen and will sell via internet, flea markets and possibly wholesale.
