Why (Small) Batch Size Matters

Joe Malicdem

Boutique. Hand-crafted. Artisan. We hear a lot of phrases from the food industry that amount to the same idea: when it comes to batch size, small is simply better. 

But why is this?

The reason is simple. Generally speaking, small batch food production delivers higher quality. It’s the difference between flavorless snacks packed with barely comprehensible ingredients and tasty, sweet and savory high-end treats that you can’t find anywhere else. 

High-Quality, Small Batch Snack Food Serves All Business Occasions and Events

Have you ever noticed how some foods just taste better than others? It could be the ingredients, the preparation, or perhaps it’s the production process. Finding real quality in popular snack foods is also unusual in a society where the mass production of cheap, low-quality goods is the norm. And there may even be a place for those goods!

But if your organization is in need of food, there’s a reason that quality matters. The stakes are higher when you’re using it for a variety of reasons – all of which are ultimately tied to your brand name:

  • Build business connections

  • Win over clients

  • Develop partnerships

  • Show thanks to valuable workers and colleagues

  • Celebrate holidays and milestones 

  • Boost employee retention

The list goes on. In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards small batch food production, and for good reason. Small batch production offers a host of benefits that result in higher quality, more delicious food. 

As you explore why small batch food production is superior to larger scale manufacturing, a few other reasons become clear.

1. Attention to Detail

One of the biggest advantages of small batch production is the increased attention to detail. When producing food in smaller quantities, manufacturers can afford to take more time with the process. They can be more meticulous with ingredient selection and preparation, ensuring that each batch is of the highest quality. Additionally, small batch producers can take the time to handcraft their products, resulting in greater care and attention to detail.

2. Greater Control Over Products

Another benefit of small batch production is greater control. When producing on a smaller scale:

  1. Manufacturers have more control over the process, from start to finish. 
  2. They can monitor the process more closely and make changes where necessary
  3. This results in a more consistent final product. 
  4. Additionally, small batch producers can tailor their products to meet specific customer needs. 
  5. For you, that means more personalized and satisfying food for gifts and events.

3. Freshness of Edible Goods

Small batch production also offers the advantage of freshness. When producing in smaller quantities, food manufacturers can ensure that each batch is freshly made. This means that the food hasn’t been sitting on a shelf for weeks or months, losing flavor and nutritional value. Instead, small batch foods are made in small quantities, so they’re always fresh, delicious, and more nutritious than the alternatives.

4. Innovation Gets Associated with Your Brand

Small batch producers are also more likely to be innovative and creative with their products. They can experiment with flavor combinations and ingredient ratios, resulting in unique and exciting food offerings. Large manufacturers are often more hesitant to innovate, as they have to consider costs and production efficiency. Small batch producers can take more risks and create products that are truly unique and delicious.
