    I’m interested in producing and selling an old family recipe from my Great Grandmother in England, its like a chutney and I’ve never tasted anything else like it. I currently make it to give it away to friends and family every so often but considering testing the waters at a famers market to see how it does. Those that try it, love it and many that have tried it have suggested that I make a business out of it.

    What will I need to get started on such a small operation? Does anyone have any advice?

    Thank you

    Liam

    There are a few posts asking this question, maybe hit the search button on the forum and you will find some, I think a lot of people are still away on holidays.

    But you will need to look at food handling laws in your state, rules re kitchen, labelling, etc. But I have seen a few posts covering it

    Hi Liam,

    Firstly welcome to the forums.

    Good idea to test the waters at local markets before investing too much, but in saying that regardless of a home based food business or a huge giant food producer, you have the same guidelines to follow.

    This is to be your food business reference point:

    https://www.foodstandards.gov.au/foodsafety/standards/Pages/Home-based-food-businesses.aspx

    https://www.foodstandards.gov.au/foodsafety/standards/Pages/Food-safety-requirements.aspx

    The InfoBites page is a good quick reference guide for you :)

    Read everything on this page and all PDF’s. This will guide you

    All the best
