Local Enterprise Office Louth partners with Bord Bia, SuperValu to deliver the Local Enterprise Offices Regional Food Academy Start Programme.

The programme will be delivered over a four month duration and will include a combination of group workshops held in the Virginia Show Centre and one-to-one mentoring. 

At the final workshop, participants will get the opportunity to present their product to a panel for 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.
