Taking a Product From Concept to Market!

In this session, you will learn about scaling a home-based business into a manufacturing facility: the process of scaling up a recipe, sourcing ingredients, the challenges that come with larger cooks and the overall experience. Join Mary Burch as she outlines her key must-haves to be successful and the top tips for new business owners like her.


Mary Burch from Red House Salsa started making salsa as gifts for family and friends, and in 2016 with lots of encouragement from friends and family she decided to try to sell salsa at her local Christmas market. Fast forward to now, today she makes salsa at a commercial facility in Leduc and continues to grow her business across Alberta.
