Necessary things to consider in starting a bakery business

Bakery business gets active earlier than the sun comes up, making breads, cakes and pastries very early every morning.

All through the day, the bakery will also produce breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries, pies, rolls and everything else that is offered by each particular bakery.  A baker; not only bakes every day, but have also got to take care of all of the accounting, such as making sure the shelves are stocked and goods are on order. A baker calculates the quantity of flour, yeast, salt, etc. that is needed each day.

Bakery business comes also into different types such as mum & pop shops that do their own baking, franchise bakeries and industrial bakeries.

Baking is something that’s extremely pleasurable for many people, what is better than the aroma of cookies and bread baking in the oven?

By looking around your local shop you would be forgiven for thinking that large bakeries are swiftly overtaking smaller ones.  However this is not completely true.  Many small bakeries do not seem to have adequate power to compete in the world, but it is potential as long as you know what you are doing.

When you are considering preliminary any type of business which produces food you must think about the legal necessities.  You will be able to start using your existing oven but you must make sure you talk to the department of health to find out whether or not your bakery is up to scratch for profitable food production.

As you start, it is not all that easy to build your own business; you require having a good head for business and also being aware of all your expenses.  You must be able to keep your customers fully satisfied and happy with your products.

Your bakery business plan should be comprehensive and go into all of the costs which you expect to incur.  You will need to plan for a license and business permit.

You might be able to start your bakery right from your home provided you have all the necessary equipments and permits.  Another option to try out is renting a commercial kitchen.  Just make sure that the rental facility for your bakery is situated in a popular location where there are plenty of customers.

Lastly, you need to research the number of other bakeries in your local area, uncover what the competition is like and how much they will charge for similar product.

Also learn the local environment and find out how it will affect the prosperity of your business. Bakeries smell wonderful but this alone would not mean that people will be lured to it. You will need to endorse your business so that people know that it exists, …

Who owns the rain?

Who owns the rain?

 It’s official. Greed is no longer cool. As turbocharged capitalism implodes and jobless queues swell, sensible governments have had to slip the bonds of laissez faire dogma to prop up their economies. The ‘free-market’ model is on the nose. Unfettered global creditors have plunged much of the developed world into debt-bondage; these days, their enforcers, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank wield the structural re-adjustment stick with renewed vigor. And it slashes to the bone. Reeling from this brigandage some countries are starting to cut their own cloth to fit their circumstances. Troubled times demand it! But I did say some, not all. Here in the islands of Mauritius and its colonially attached dependency, Rodrigues, the enforcers still have the run of the mill and, sometimes, they even get to run the mill.

 First some background: citing a lack of local expertise, and the need for a separate specialist agency to improve efficiency, Rodrigues chief commissioner disbands the water unit and, amid bitter party in-fighting, shunts the incumbent water commissioner aside and snaps up the commission for himself. The government establishes the privately-run but government-owned Rodrigues Water Company, effectively outsourcing to itself. Water meters are promptly installed for the user-pay system. And in classic like-it-or-lump-it style, public consultation follows the fait accompli. Rodriguans are reassured that new regulations will safeguard against future water privatization.

 Somehow, I detect a less noble instinct behind this political pantomime. Here’s why: if the government were really serious about keeping water in public hands, why didn’t they simply improve the existing public utility making it more efficient, iron out the kinks and, if needed, brought expert consultants to the commissioner’s table? Incidentally, costly imported experts have been doing their sophisticated rain-dance with negligible results since British rule; what’s more, with all the money thrown at this problem since, we could have built a brand new aircraft carrier. Okay I exaggerate. The point is, the money is gone but the problem is still here. Why? Evidently, no one could make it rain but they will now! In the crudest monstering of the truth, we are told that this cockamamie scheme will modernize and develop our country. No it won’t. In reality, it will bring grief and misery to the poor, while making those who eventually get to own the company – filthy rich. 

No matter the slant, when we get to the nitty-gritty, it distills down to a cash grab. Taxpayers paid for water infrastructure, and will continue to pay for major repairs and works, and reservoirs. And since RWC won’t churn out any desalinated water, or treat grey water, or produce a single drop of water that does not fall from the sky; water restrictions will remain. Indeed, in future, we may have to pay more for less. RWC will simply commandeer taxpayer-funded infrastructure, submit an annual uncooked report to the administration, check meters on taps, tip a bit of chlorine in our water and sell it back to us. …
