There's never been a better time to start a home based food business...

  • Do you want or need to work from home?

  • Do you want to work flexible hours?

  • Do you need to work around your own children?

  • Do you want a quick route to success?

  • Do you want or need the extra income?

In the current world climate there's no better time to start a business from your own home. Starting a business from home can be an excellent low cost way to create the work-life balance you might need whilst bringing in an income. Or perhaps you've found yourself recently unemployed and you're looking for alternative ways to bring home the bacon? Whatever you're reason, I'm here to help.

You probably won’t have too much time to learn entirely new business skills in order to start your own business, so what if I told you that you won’t need any new skills to start up your own flexible, work from home business?


And what if I also told you that you could run your own business by offering a service you may already really enjoy and be passionate about – cooking or baking in your own kitchen!

All you need is someone to help you shortcut through the business know-how, hit the ground running and avoid making costly mistakes. Someone to help you get clear on what you need to do, so you can get on and do it. Luckily, you just found that person - me!

... because I've done it myself!

I started Tot-Pots Homemade Toddler Meals shortly after my children (twins) reached the toddler stage after realising I needed a better life-work balance. 

I developed a series of recipes - all crammed with goodness, got myself registered, wrote up my food safety sheets and sourced my suppliers. I created a simple website, facebook page and knocked up some promotional flyers - I found my first customers and the rest just followed! 


Having set up and managed my own successful home based food business, I want to help you set up and run your own. A 'work from home' business offers flexibility... it gives you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you like, you can fit things in around your own family commitments as you grow and develop your business.


If I can do it, you can too - and I've made it SUPER EASY for you!

The HACCP plan section of the course contains multiple downloads, documents and templates that you can use as the foundation of your own HACCP plan. Also included is a pdf copy of my own HACCP that you can use as guidance whilst creating a plan that works for you. This section alone will save you weeks of creation time!

A HACCP (hazard and critical control points) Plan provides proof of how your food safety is managed and is an essential component of any food business, regardless of how small the business may be. You will not receive a 5 star food hygiene rating without proving how your food safety is managed.
