I am in the process of starting a baked goods company, and I have been trying to find the best prices on chocolate to use in cookies, brownies, etc. No candies are being made at this point, its strictly baking. The best price I have found is on 11 lbs of Callebaut for $45. Does anyone know of any places, I do have a EIN, so I am able to use things that may not be open to the general public, but I am in the starting stages that I dont think any food service would deliver to me......but I am willing and able to travel. And I have googled away, not having much luck....
I do not know if you have tried other forums, but you might have better luck in one of the larger cake forums. Best wishes to you on the start of your business!
