Are you ready to future-proof your business?
The coronavirus pandemic is forcing many food and drink businesses to diversify, develop new products or services, and access new markets to survive- which means having to learn new processes and skills. The Business Gateway Growth Hub and its delivery partners have put together a comprehensive package of free support to link food and drink businesses with industry experts.
Tailored one to one specialist support
With an ever-changing market due to the Coronavirus pandemic, food and drink businesses should take this opportunity, and the free support available, to diversify, stabilise and future-proof their business.
Complimenting the wider support provided through this programme, each enrolled business will receive consultancy support, free of charge.
The consultancy will cover:
- Full business diagnostics with an experienced adviser
- Identifying challenges and opportunities and how to overcome them
- Support to assist in areas such as food safety, labeling and nutritional analysis
- Developing action plans for improvement
