    Hello Guys,

    East Midlands-based support organisation, the Food & Drink Forum has won a £7million contract to deliver funded services to the food and drink manufacturing sector. The Forum will be offering food and drink businesses a range of funded support services including technical support, business mentoring and access to grant funding.

    The FEAST project, which stands for the Food Enterprise Advisory Support Team, will run until December 2018 and during this time will support hundreds of businesses, responding to the specific needs of the sector. The project which is worth £7.1million in total will receive £3.5million funding from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

    The Food & Drink Forum is a not-for-profit, industry-led organisation and will be offering support to food and drink manufacturers through; bespoke technical and business advice, business mentoring, tailored sector-specific events designed to share good practice and Healthcare Services Video develop business partnerships, a specially designed technical apprentice scheme – supporting job creation and developing skills amongst young people, and finally through the allocation of capital grants.

    The Food & Drink Forum will be offering grants to businesses looking to expand, to assist with their expenditure. With food and drink manufacturing being a key priority sector within the D2N2 area the FEAST project will encourage growth and innovation not only within the businesses it supports but also across the sector as a whole.
