Local Enterprise Office Wicklow are currently seeking expressions of interest in the Food Academy from ambitious Wicklow based food producers who want to take their business to the next level. Food Academy is a training programme aimed at supporting and nurturing start-up food businesses and will be delivered by James Burke & Associates.
The Local Enterprise Offices Wicklow have joined forces with Bord Bia and Supervalu on this initiative to provide a consistent level of food marketing knowledge to new and early-stage food business owners. This programme will provide companies with long-term business supports including Consumer insights, technical advice, resource planning, commercial advice and marketing development.
The Food Academy consists of 4 workshop covering 6 modules. At the final workshop, participants will get the opportunity to present their product to a panel from Supervalu and if successful, can participate in a trial based in local shops, which in the right circumstances could progress over time to a listing to a national listing with Supervalu.
The Academy costs €150 and is inclusive of all course materials, training and mentoring. To express your interest please submit your details online on www.localenterprise.ie/Wicklow or phone Annette on 0404 30800.
