New Product idea

How does one bring a new product to market. A new kind of canned item is what I am speaking about.

Start with your local government. They can point you in the correct direction for getting everything in line.

You might want to start checking out manufacturers, too.

Write down you idea....recipes...ingredients etc. in exact, specific, complete details. Include month, day, and year. Put it in an envelope and mail it to yourself!!

This gives you a post mark proving you were the FIRST to have this idea.

Oh!! Have it notarized before mailing!

Well, Don - here is a free website that might give you some ideas: Getting Started in the Specialty Food Business. And if you want to pony up about $100 there is the book from Jazz Foods.

Come to think of it, I have never seen any canned specialities (jams, sauce, pickles...etc) at our annual festival in the fall. This means there are some strick guidelines and laws prohibiting it. But we do have tons of vendors at the festival.
