Four local businesses participated in this year's Food Academy Start Programme with Bord Bia, Supervalu and LEO Cavan.

The Food Academy Start Programme is a new initiative, introduced in 2014, aimed at supporting and nurturing start-up food businesses. The programme is delivered through workshop style training which is designed by Bord Bia and Supervalu. It is also supported by Supervalu in the context of retail expertise and providing a route to market.

Co-ordinated by Local Enterprise Offices nationwide, the programme is designed to guide companies from start-up to their first retail listing.
