Webinar for Food Businesses

Webinar for Food Businesses

Here at LEO Galway, we are getting lots of ideas and suggestions as well as challenges from food producers, since the start of the current crisis. We felt it would be helpful to team up with our colleagues in LEO Mayo and Roscommon, to deliver a webinar on the challenges and opportunities currently facing regional food producers. 

This will take place on Thursday 16th April 2020 @ 4.30p.m. for 1 hour (we will send you details of how to log in ahead of the event)

To keep things manageable we will set a limit of 50 participants for this video call. There is no charge, but you do need to reserve your space. Secure your place now from the link below: 


While we will have experts online to handle queries, this is going to be more about the regional food community (Galway, Mayo and Roscommon) sharing tips and knowledge. Ideally we will focus on helping each other, and pinpointing opportunities. 

The following contributors will be online:

  • Elaine Moyles, A/Head of Enterprise Local Enterprise Office Mayowill provide an update on LEO and other supports in relation to Covid-19 impact in the food sector
  • Carmel Biggane of Supervalu will outline what’s happening at retail level and where might food opportunities lie
  • With online food sales up 10 fold, Amazon seller John Jenkins will help us understand where the opportunities are  
  • Former Investment Banker, Yvonne Scully will help us understand “Business continuity, cash flow management and bank schemes” with the latest up to date information
  • Food expert James Burke has been working with dozens of producers for the last 10 days and will summarise some of the opportunities and experiences he is seeing emerging with others.  James will also facilitate the call.
