  • You are not going to be able to make a profit after you buy the containers and what not, as tnt said this is against the law in most states without a food certificate, what are you going to do when someone sues you because they got sick?

  • How much does it cost you to make the soup, package it, and anything else in the process? How much profit do you want to make or expect to make? How much do you think people would be willing to pay for it? You need to answer those questions to figure out an appropriate price point. And if you want to make this an legitimate business, you need to go through the proper channels: business license, health inspection, etc.

  • You should first look into what your jurisdiction has for standards and licenses for small scale food processors.
