Small Business Trade Challenges

Octo­ber was a big month for sweets, snacks and speak­ing out. Maud Borup Pres­i­dent, Chris­tine Lan­ti­nen, along with three oth­er small busi­ness lead­ers, tes­ti­fied in front of the Unit­ed States Con­gress in a hear­ing address­ing Glob­al Sup­ply Chains and Small Busi­ness Trade Chal­lenges”. Chris­tine spoke about some of the chal­lenges small busi­ness­es cur­rent­ly face, along with ways for the gov­ern­ment to help. 

The top issues that were dis­cussed were work­er short­age, increased trans­porta­tion costs, and issues get­ting goods unloaded off of ships sit­ting along the US coast­line. The sto­ry was cov­ered by CBS News WCCO.

We also spoke with Fox9 News about employ­ee short­ages and com­pa­ny growth.

As a pas­sion­ate small busi­ness, we will con­tin­ue to push through adver­si­ty because bring­ing hap­pi­ness to the world makes it all worthwhile.

What We Do

We cre­ate sea­son­al sweets, snacks, and food gifts for retail part­ners and spe­cial­ty stores nation­wide. And because inno­va­tion and sus­tain­abil­i­ty are as fun­da­men­tal as qual­i­ty and taste, most of our day-to-day oper­a­tions cul­mi­nate in a zero land­fill waste facility.
