Today the demand for homemade foods has increased to a remarkable level. In fact, nowadays, the most sought-after food items come under the tags 'organic' and 'homemade'. We don't know whether it really makes a difference or not but for sure these labels make us feel safe and good about what we eat.

When a product says it's homemade, we believe it is free of additives, artificial flavours, and colours, which means it's healthy to eat. This explains the sudden boom in home-baking, home-catering and any home-based food business.

The home enterprise idea started with homemade birthday cakes. The thought of someone dedicating their time and energy to the making of a customized cake with ingredients that are hand-picked is what made the homemade cakes so special. When the cake trend picked up, people slowly started expanding their menus to different desserts, finger foods, regional specialities, pickles and eventually to a fully-fledged homemade meal. Unlike other trends that have come and gone in time, the demand for homemade food is here to stay.

The best part about home-based food business is that you may not even need a separate space to make your business work. Also, you can do it at your own pace and comfort. What required is some interest and the right amount of technical knowledge in food production to run the show successfully. Your knowledge in this field could take you and your business to a whole new level. If you have what it takes to be a foodpreneur then polishing your knowledge and skills in a culinary school such as  ICCA Dubai could be your stepping stone to a new and promising career.
