Food Academy is a training programme aimed at supporting and nurturing start-up food businesses. The Local Enterprise Offices 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.

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 national listing with SuperValu. (There is no guarantee of your product being listed as part of the programme, however over 80% of products proceed to trial)

  • Understand core technical issues facing your food or drink business

The programme consists of four workshops covering 6 modules and is aimed at those in the early stages of developing a food or drink business. Selection criteria will apply.
