Yeah, that's what expansion is for. Rape them for ketsup and it will still get bought. I bet at $70 a bottle with q0 it will still sell quick in quantities of up to 10,000 or maybe more. Not sure how the big guys do it.
Yeah, I've considered it. I'm currently making a batch of 10000 bottles of ketchup, but it's taking a very long time just to get it to market all the while I'm not making profit on anything. I think what I'll do is split the batch, sell one half to whoever wants it here, and the other I'll sell at a high market. I can't see myself producing it very often since it's so expensive and time consuming to produce. I'll likely sell something that takes less steps to make like white vinegar to help recoup the costs before I venture into ketchup again.
As mid guy (not big yet) its simple, if buy ketchup at 70 and can sell it at 100-120 and probably run out through 10000 bottles in 24 hours. Yet, if i dont run anything in that spot, i am losing 30-50 a pop, hence the obscenely high prices and still get sold immediately, because not enough people making it yet. Vice versa, fruit is dirt cheap mainly because so many people making it. I cant imagine anyone trying to make it in fruit business, (gl GG) i see a list of 20 strawberries with almost no differentiators, and think boy, thats a tough business.
