Advice on Baking Supplies for Start up Business

Postby ToriM2 » Tue, 23 Jan 2007 2:23 pm

Hello. We are thinking of starting a small food business (ie. desserts). I was wondering if anyone would know where I could find supplies such as: cake plates, disposable pie pans, aluminum loaf pans, parchment paper, aluminum foil in bulk, boxes for packaging, etc?

Also, would you know if I need a license or permit to do this? it's nothing big or commercial, more like a home business.

Any advice would be great. Thank you.

For supplies like cake plates, pans, etc etc, try Phoon Huat. Check out their link. http://www.phoonhuat.com

For licenses/permits, you can check with National Environment Agency. http://app.nea.gov.sg/

hi ToriM2

you could try Bake It Yourself at Bukit Timah for baking and cake decoration supplies. Their website addie is http://www.b-i-y.com/ . Phoon Huat has some good supplies too and is more reasonably priced than BIY. On the other hand, BIY has some decorating supplies that I could not find anywhere else in Singapore.

For basic packaging you can try SKP. SKP has many outlets dotted around the island. Their website addie is http://www.partyware.com.sg/.

As to whether you need a license, you can check with the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore. Their website addie is http://www.ava.gov.sg/
