Mrs MTG's got this idea about making soup and selling it on a market stall.
This is something neither of us really know anything about.
At the moment, the idea is to bulk cook a load of soup, put it in pots and freeze it, then sell the frozen pots on the stall.
She would also like to sell bowls of soup, or give away small samples, so people can try before they buy.
Keeping large quantities of soup frozen all day; cool box or freezer and generator ?
Heating soup; big pan on a gas burner or one bowl at a time in a microwave with a generator ?
Preparing, cooking and storing food in a normal domestic kitchen; what certificates or qualifications are needed ?
A quick search on ebay, and 500ml sealed soup pots are about 50p each. that's a big chunk of the total selling price gone; any cheaper options ?
Anything else obvious we haven't thought of ?
There's a farmer's market in Bewdley every month, so we could do a small scale try out there.
How do we find out all the legal requirements to start a small business like this ?
