Calling all small food businesses in Meath, do you have a product that is ready to take the next step up into the retail and food service markets? We are delighted to be working with Local Enterprise Office Meath, SuperValu Food Academy and Bord Bia on the 2017 Food Academy Start programme. This is a food marketing programme aimed at small food businesses with a product that is ready to be commercialised. The programme will enable participants to develop and grow their food business, taking into account the following: (i) market background and understanding the consumer; (ii) core technical issues; (iii) sales; and (iv) development and enhancement.
The programme will be delivered over a four month duration and will include a combination of group workshops and one-to-one mentoring.
Participants who complete the programme will be eligible to avail of Bord Bía’s suite of follow-on programmes at the appropriate stage in market development.
At the final workshop, participants will get the opportunity to present their product to a panel for SuperValu and, if successful, can participate in a trial based in local shops, which in the right circumstances, could progress over time to a national listing with SuperValu.
