Charcuterie Board Business

Want to know why you should consider starting a home-based charcuterie board business? During Covid, pre-packed charcuterie sales went up in volume over 80%, and by Q2 of 2021, pre-packaged charcuterie boards remained 40% higher than in previous years. Charcuterie boxes and boards are all the rage now, and sales don’t show any signs of slowing. 

Though the charcuterie board started in France in the 1400s, they are seeing prominence in culture now. Charcuterie board ideas range from the classic meat and cheese presentation to the inclusion of pickled beets, honeycomb, flavored honey, teas, chocolate, boiled eggs, crackers, toasted bread, nuts, mustards, and many more delicious combinations. 

If you need to know how to make a charcuterie board, look no further. There are ideas at every fine-dining restaurant and even online at places like Williams Sonoma or Goldbelly. You can start your own charcuterie board business, charge far less, and offer much more than online competitors in a food niche that is trending. The next best charcuterie board could be yours!
