Why Now is the Right Time to Start a Home-Based Food Business in Alberta

Do you have a passion for cooking and have ever thought about starting a culinary business? We have an amazing news for you!

Thanks to the new Low-risk Home Prepared Foods Law (June 1, 2020) in Alberta, you can start a home-based food business and make money doing what you love by selling meals to your neighbours, from the comfort of your own home. Rather than investing significant amounts of time and capital into opening a traditional restaurant, the new homemade food law in Alberta is opening a new category in the gig economy that allows anyone with a genuine passion and love for cooking to start selling food on their own terms with minimal risk and zero startup cost.

Needless to say, if you’ve been thinking about starting your own cooking business, the homemade food economy might just be the answer to your prayers! 

Now don’t get us wrong — starting a home-based food business requires time, skills, and hard work. Being a home-based food entrepreneur also provides flexibility and a much lower level of risk to get started, creating an evolutionary shift in the food industry that opens it up to so many people with big dreams of sharing their amazing food with the world. Thanks to tools like the Platers Homemade Foods Delivery App, there are so many resources out there to guide you in the process every step along the way.
