New Online Course Targets Irish Food Start-ups

New Online Course Targets Irish Food Start-ups

A new ‘Digital School of Food’ has been launched, aimed at enabling food start-ups to grow and succeed. An initiative of the Dublin Food Chain and the Local Enterprise Offices in the Dublin region, the online programme for food entrepreneurs is the first of its kind in Europe.

The new Digital School of Food is an e-learning initiative that targets food producers from idea through start-up and growth stages. It consists of an online platform that will help new and innovative food businesses to start-up and succeed. Supported by Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia and the Dublin Institute of Technology, the project was born as a result of the strong interest among food entrepreneurs to learn about succeeding in business from key industry experts.

Announcing the launch of the new platform, the Chair of the Network of Local Enterprise Offices, Oisin Geoghegan, highlighted the importance of cultivating the food sector: “We have seen a lot of innovative and excellent food start-ups emerging in Ireland over the last number of years across the country. Local Enterprise Offices are very keen to ensure that start-ups in the food sector are given every opportunity to not just survive, but to grow and scale. Setting up a new food business, of itself, can be relatively straightforward. However, growing that business to make it successful and sustainable in the long terms presents a far greater and more complex series of challenges. That is why we need to ensure that our food entrepreneurs are provided with the right mix of support services so that they can identify opportunities and avoid pitfalls. This e-learning platform is a clever and very practical way to help small food businesses to learn the ropes at their own pace and in their own work environment.”

The Digital School of Food gives these entrepreneurs access to sound commercial guidance and mentoring to help them get their products onto shelves, and also gives emerging food entrepreneurs and those who want to begin their food production journey, practical support to bring their idea or product to life. The model is based on an e-learning platform which contains tips, advice and information from existing producers, all related to succeeding in the food sector.

The programme is available to food businesses in the Dublin region initially following which it will be rolled out nationally. It will be made available free of charge to qualifying businesses that register online http://www.digitalschooloffood.ie/
