This ‘Food Starter programme’ is a short two day programme designed to help those with a food idea, or those at a very early stage of starting up a food business (typically the first 24 months). The objective of the 2 days is to provide the participants with a base knowledge of what is involved in setting up a food business.
The content is designed to provide you with information which will allow you to avoid the pit falls normally associated with this journey.
