If I were to start a drop shipping business, which niche should I focus on? Should I focus on products that are "recession proof"? Like food for example?

Where is you passion? Something you know about? Wouldn't that be a good place to start?

I agree with viper_one. Find what you like to do first. It's hard to start a business you don't like. For me even food businesses aren't recession proof. I know somebody here in our place who didn't succeed at that one. I think it depends on how you manage your business well especially in terms of sales and marketing. Quality matters most if you'll start with this kind of business.

Good advice - find a niche you know and are passionate about. Also, look for a market that is either not being served or is currently being underserved.
Lastly, regarding dropshipping. Know that if those that provide the product get their hands on your customer's information, they will try to steal that customer from you.
