Bord Bia, Enterprise Ireland and Teagasc are working together to find and foster a new group of entrepreneurs.
Applications are now open for candidates interested in being a part of the 2015 Food Works programme. Ideal applicants are ambitious food or drink entrepreneurs, or companies trading for less than 4 years that wish to target export markets and scale their business. It is envisaged that the company will have an innovative product either already developed or in development. The Food Works programme aims to help these young companies to realise their full potential to achieve significant scale and become major international businesses in markets across the globe while creating new jobs at home. Successful companies will be introduced to suitable investors to help them to fund a scalable business during the programme.
Interested participants are invited to learn more about the programme at a number of regional information seminars at the Radisson Hotel – Athlone, Tayto Park – Ashbourne and Cork Institute of Technology – Cork.
