Case Study


  Ground 2 Table Adds More Spice


The Client

Ground 2 Table makes organic spice blends and gourmet flavor kits free of salt, sugar, artificial flavorings and GMOs. Each spice blend inspires culinary creativity by providing endless ways to mix and match foods. The freshly ground organic spice blends are offered in single use packets to keep flavor fresh for beginner cooks to accomplished chefs. With headquarters in health-conscious San Diego County, Ground 2 Table is an organic way to turn ordinary meals and snacks gourmet.

The Challenge

Ground 2 Table launched a new line of 12 organic spice blends and wanted to ensure regulatory compliance for the new products’ labels. The products were unique as they packaged fresh herbs and dried spices together in a kit for one serving and required a multi-serving pack. In addition, Ground 2 Table wanted to make special claims on the package. Given the need to ensure retailer adoption for this new line of products, they wanted to ensure compliant labels for sell-in, not to mention avoiding any FDA issues downstream.

The Solution

Food Consulting Company provided Ground 2 Table staff with informative and valuable guidance for their package labels to ensure they met FDA standards. Working through each formulation, Food Consulting Company helped food labelers at Ground 2 Table develop nutrition and ingredient information to include on the package labels. Use of "salt-free" and "no sugar added" nutrition claims required that Ground 2 Table include Nutrition Facts Panel on the labels to ensure compliance. Food Consulting Company advised Ground 2 Table on this and guided the development.

The Results

Food Consulting Company not only helped Ground 2 Table achieve FDA-compliant labels but went above and beyond to make sure that those involved were comfortable with all of the information they supplied. Company staff noted that the process of working with Food Consulting Company’s experts was highly educational. The approach they learned enabled Ground 2 Table to develop labels for similar products on their own with all the confidence that they were created correctly. Applying what the staff learned to other projects enabled Ground 2 Table to save money too.
