Hi all,

I'm hoping someone here can help or point me in the right direction

I'm in the process of starting a health smoothie business from home. Its something ive always wanted to do ever since i left full time work after ML was born.

The concept is a fruit/veg smoothie (with dairy and non dairy options). I've got council approval, and at the moment selling to just a few local friends/neighbours.

But i would like to know how to go about properly calculatiing a shelf life for each drink. At the moment I'm saying consume on the day of purchase, but i don't think that viable in the long term when i expand.

From my experience the drinks last around 72 hours if kept in fridge, but i would need to verify this scientifically before I make the claim I would think .

Can anyone who has a home food food business (baking, juices, takeways) shed some light?

TIA
