Getting Started with Shipping your Value-Add Products
December 31, 2025
Are you a grower who has started producing value-add goods, or is hoping to start in the near future? Are you wondering how to begin shipping these products to reach folks beyond your local community? Speaker Holly Cooper of Seattle Elderberry will present on what she has learned from doing fulfillment for her own brand, and will touch on topics such as packaging, cost, helpful technological tools, and tips for getting started. There will be some time for questions as well.
About the Presenter:
Holly Cooper is the founder of Seattle Elderberry, a direct-to-customer, product-based business. During their five years of business, Seattle Elderberry has had many different models for running business logistics. They used copackers and 3rd party shipping services before bringing all production and shipping in-house about two years ago. Holly has a passion for helping other small businesses navigate the world of direct-to-consumer shipping. At one point, Seattle Elderberry also acted as a 3rd party shipping service for a few other product-based businesses in Seattle!
