Louth LEO to host food business course

The Food Starter programme is aimed at people thinking of starting their own food business or in the early stages of start-up (typically the first 24 months) and includes people who are hoping to progress their food hobby into a full time sustainable business. 

The programme is run in conjunction with Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board (www.bordbia.ie) to help emerging food entrepreneurs bring their idea or product to life. 

It is not aimed at those thinking of opening a café or restaurant or food service (catering).

On successful completion of the programme participants should have a sound knowledge of the rudiments of food business start-up and be in a position to go about their start-up in an effective way. 

The programme will allow them to fully understand the legal requirements and consider the costs associated with setting up a food business, allowing them to decide if this is the direction they wish to take.

  • Understanding what is artisan food production
  • Identifying what are the pitfalls associated with starting your own food business
  • Minimum requirements, eg food safety, labelling requirements, insurance, etc.
