Business Support Programme

A Place To Grow

We ran a pilot Business Support Programme to support food and drink SMEs in the South West with ambitions to grow. This brought together a host of industry experts to offer targeted support for businesses across the region.

Support included; one-to-one clinics, mentoring, workshops and seminars as well as financial, marketing and legal advice.

These business advice sessions were a huge success and we have plans to run further business support activities in the future.

Our team have a wealth of experience & expertise in all aspects of food industry and also sound general business skills and knowledge.

·  Strategy and business planning
·  Sales and Marketing

·  The development of new markets through exporting
·  People and team development
