    Hi there everyone
    I’m hoping to get some advice on how to go about starting my own pet treat business? From others who have set one up , just unsure on requirements in Australia regarding food licencing,legalities, labelling and whether you can make them at home. Im beginning this as a little side business as I’m at home with my children. Would be very appreciative of some pointers please. Been doing some researching and looking at other business models and confused as some seem different to others. Can anybody please help ?

    Hi [USER=119684]@Natanyamarie[/USER],

    Thanks for joining us on the forums and hopefully someone can steer you in the right direction. While you are waiting, you could try searching this forum for past conversations about making food products at home or labelling.

    Best of luck!
    Dave

    Having worked in Associations for a large chunk of my working life I always start by looking to see if there is a representative body. Just found this

    Just one more thing to look at.

    Distribution to independent pet shops is key if you are going to use that model.

    So it is worth the research.

    If you let us know what your general idea you have, around how much capital you have and your initial ideas around production, marketing etc, we will be better equipped to provide useful advice.
