WHEELERSBURG Ohio — Patter Fam Foods, a full-service sauce co-packing facility, has been now approved for acidic foods manufacturing.
The company was launched in 2009 by husband and wife duo Sam and Joyce Peters. The Peters had a passion for creating unique culinary creations, specializing in sauces and seasonings. They started Patter Fam Sauces, bottling and selling their products to the public. Since then, their business has grown beyond their sauces, they ventured into offering cooking courses and group culinary classes. Now, they have approval to help others bottle and market their products.
“What we specialize in, is the micro-batch. One of the problems that we found, when Joyce and I had our products bottled by a co-packer in Dayton is, that once they were bought out by another company, we got pushed out the door. There are very few companies in the country who will produce a small batch,” explained Peters, “Most companies want you to produce 200 gallons or more before they’ll even talk to you. A lot of these smaller companies can’t afford that. Our niche is to work with that small, fledgling business, that person that wants to take it to the next level and we’ll make that micro-batch for them.”
They can produce in quantities as small as 10 gallons or as large as you need.
“We’re truly an agriculturally rich community, and we want to be a vital part of that pipeline from food to table or farm to table and provide a new industry for our area,” said owner Sam Peters, “We’ll be able to create jobs and help the other businesses in our area.”
Patter Fam Foods is actively looking for food producers with a new product or limited budget, restaurants, or start-ups looking for a way to make their product “market ready.”
“There are a lot of people in the community who either run a restaurant, a concession stand, or they have a sauce that they’ve been making in their kitchens. Our services allow them to bottle and market their products, and take their business to the next level,” explained Peters.
They provide consulting, branding, product development and logistic services. They can manufacture your recipe or develop a private label line for your restaurant or food company.
“There are plenty of ways for local people to utilize our services. A lot of farmers have left-over produce at the end of the season and rather than just throw it on the compost pile, they can bring it to us. We can manufacture it into a product that they can re-sell, whether that’s jelly or jam or a sauce of some kind,” said Peters.
As an extension of their successful Patter Fam Sauces brand, they have a proven track record for high quality food products and service. Sam Peters said, “We are dedicated to outstanding customer service and partnerships with our clients. Our mission has always been to make every dining experience great.”
Peters also uses the kitchen Lab to host cooking classes and they sell a variety of their award-winning sauces and seasonings as well.
