The Food Starter Programme

The Food Starter programme is an online 4 x 1/2-day programme designed to help those with a food idea, or those at a very early stage of starting up a food business. Typically, within the first 24 months.

It will cover everything from an overview of the Irish food sector to the specifics of starting a food production business.

It is a prerequisite for anyone undertaking the Food Academy Programme.  We would also recommend starting out that you complete a Start your Own Business Programme with your Local Enterprise Office.
