Three fruit marmalade [marketing homemade product?]

Hello everyone out there!
I always make my own 3 fruit marmalade (oranges, grapefruit and lemon). Everyone loves it and many have told me that I should try to market it. I've always been rather sceptical. What it the general view here and would anyone be interested?

Re: Three fruit marmalade

I think first and foremost you'll have to send some samples to the forum admin for "evaluation"

Since this is kind of business-related, I'm going to shift this thread over to the Entrepreneur area. I'm sure the likes of Jack (from Laughing Lemon) will be along to offer some advice.

Re: Three fruit marmalade

Traditional British marmalade is not really very popular in Switzerland - it's a jam society. So you face a sticky marketing problem as I see it...

Possibly selling through the various shops that sell British products to expats? But I think the customers that buy at those sites are after certain brand-name products that they are missing. Carlos/Evolver still around?

I know that expats are normally looking for a certain product, but thie is more like the WI marmalade and I know that that is very popular.
