Hi! Looking for options to package my gourmet hot chocolate mix. I am considering 1/2 lb coffee bags or a tin for something a little more elegant. If I do go with the tin - do I also need it to be in a heat sealed bag within the tin? Thanks!

What a spotty list! It's good that they have Askinosie, French Broad, Dandelion, and Woodblock on their list. But other top quality b2b makers like Rogue, Fresco, Manoa, Ritual, and Dick Taylor are conspicuously absent while Lindt makes the list! Makes one question the experience and the judgment of the editors.
For me it is just another…Continue
