Canned food as a small business

This business has a number of features that you need to be aware of before embarking on a project.

  • The demand for canned food is consistently high in the summer.

This is due to the fact that in summer fresh meat does not keep its condition for long and spoils quickly, and people prefer canned food. In addition, trips to the cottage, hiking in the forest or mountains also require a supply of canned food.

  • Shop equipment can be very expensive.

A professional line producing up to 5-6 thousand cans per shift will cost at least 3 million rubles.

  • To open a business, you must obtain permission from Rospotrebnadzor.

  • To open a business, you must obtain permission from Rospotrebnadzor.

Permission is required for anyone working with food. You can get it by submitting all the necessary documents to the authority and preparing the premises for inspection.

Business is well suited for those who live in the countryside or outside the city: such businessmen have the opportunity to equip a small farm for raising livestock, and there will be no difficulties with equipping additional premises, warehouses, etc.

In Chelyabinsk every now and then they report on the next reductions in the factories. The regional authorities believe that many unemployed people can show their abilities in small and medium-sized businesses - with the support of the state. But are there real examples of such success? A resident of Kopeysk, Ivan Verakhin, left without work, managed to start his own business. He makes canned food. Moreover, a recipe book from the USSR helped him in this.

Canteens are back

AiF-Chelyabinsk correspondent Eldar Gizatullin: - They say that people usually go to small business for two reasons: there is a good idea or just by necessity. What was your option?

- I noticed that restaurants close quite often in Chelyabinsk. Why?

- Not only in Chelyabinsk. Out of a hundred restaurants, only ten are profitable at best, and it is extremely difficult to get into this top ten. More opportunities for restaurant chains. Or, conversely, small clubs that have found a unique niche. Also, note that classic self-service eateries began to develop. Many people are too lazy to cook themselves, and it is unprofitable to eat in expensive establishments. The fact that the food in the canteens resembles homemade food also plays a role, I took this into account later.

In general, a restaurant is not a business, it is more for the soul. If you have such an establishment, it does not mean that you have a lot of money.

- Do you really find as many violations in restaurant kitchens as the TV shows?

- Perfectly clean and tidy where the dishes are not prepared at all. And as soon as the work process began, something would fall to the floor. You will remember your kitchen when you cook several dishes! Of course, this does not mean that sanitary standards should be taken lightly. Believe me, it is easy to poison a person as a result of negligence, but the consequences can be very serious for business and image, therefore, the norms are not monitored because of fear of television people.

Better no red algae

- When you started making canned food, did you decide to use the recipes of your mother or grandmother?

- A friend bought an autoclave - an apparatus for processing food through heating under pressure. The equipment turned out to be heavy, weighing 200 kg, and they could not even lift it into the apartment. That's how I got the autoclave. By that time, I was convinced that there was no good stew and such good old dish as porridge with stew in stores. Do you remember when such canned food was sold during the USSR? Like many others, I remembered that taste, bought similar canned food, but every time I was convinced: it's all wrong!

I decided: since I am unemployed, I will create an enterprise for myself, I will produce canned food no worse than home. True, I did not use my mother's recipes, but a 1970 textbook, which in Soviet times was specially published for the food industry. Everything is in accordance with GOST, no chemistry. The publication is really rare.

- What difficulties did you have to face at the initial stage? In our country, many individual entrepreneurs complain that they suffer losses as soon as they start a business.

Hello!

I think everyone knows that you can't find a good stew now in the afternoon with fire. I do not argue, you can find it, but it costs a lot of money. And the price, often, does not guarantee quality, you can find frankly low-quality stew in a bank from a famous brand.

The price of an average quality can of pork stew starts from 150 rubles, I know this from my own experience.

In the best case, there will be 180-200 grams of meat, and even then not clean - with streaks, pieces of bacon.

Therefore, I decided to try to cook the stew on my own, and calculate the approximate cost. It will be better than the store one in any case, but I want to find out how much more profitable it is to make the stew myself.

Let's go

I will cook stew from pork. Since, I am doing this for the first time, I decided to roll up only two half-liter cans, just for a test.

What I used: 1.7 kg of pork on the bone with skin, onions, salt, bay leaves, black peppercorns.

First, I cut the meat off the bones, removed the skin and cut into pieces the size of a walnut. As a result, a little more than a kilogram of pulp came out, this is just enough for two cans.

Next, salt the meat. For this amount of meat (1.2 kg), I added one and a half teaspoons of salt. Thoroughly mixed the meat and salt in a bowl.

Stew production as a business

Today in stores you can find a huge amount of canned meat from different manufacturers, but the quality of the bulk of such products leaves much to be desired.

Many buyers would like to purchase a truly high-quality stew and are ready to pay an adequate price for it, but there is practically no supply in this market. So why not start your own production of real homemade stew?

This business idea is especially relevant for people living in the countryside.

If you have your own backyard, where you have your own meat and utility rooms for organizing a mini-workshop.

Registration of "stew" business

Before starting any business, you must officially register and receive all the necessary documents. To open a small production of homemade stewed meat, it will be enough to register as an individual entrepreneur.

This is done in a matter of days, you just need to look at the tax office at the place of registration with a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation and fill out an application for state registration of an individual as an individual entrepreneur. You must attach a copy of your passport and a receipt for payment of the state duty to your application (in 2021 it is 800 rubles).

Obtaining Permits

Since canned meat is food, its production is regulated by laws on product safety and quality. Before starting a mini-workshop, it will be necessary to obtain an act stating that the premises and equipment meet all the established requirements of Rospotrebnadzor. You will also need a manufacturer's declaration, as well as the conclusion of Rospotrebnadzor on the premises and according to the recipe.

Russian legislation does not provide for mandatory certification of canned meat. However, all canned food must comply with the safety requirements established in TR CU 021/2021 "On food safety". Please read these rules.

Autoclave - home mini stew plant

To set up the production of stewed meat and any other canned food right at home, it is enough to purchase a mini-autoclave. / n>
