Start Ups

You’ve got lots of questions?


Starting your own business is exciting but can be daunting – there is lots to think about and do. Added to this, in a food business you need to make sure your products and processes are safe and legal.

You have a great idea for a product but no previous food knowledge so just don’t know where to start. You may be a start-up business ready for that next stage of moving into new premises from making in the kitchen at home. Maybe you are not sure what the next steps are in scaling up effectively, as doing it the way you are used to may just not be sustainable or profitable.

You may be a sole trader or small team and are feeling overwhelmed and pulled in lots of different directions. How do you work out the things that will make a difference to growing your business and identify the distractions? It can be lonely and you need someone more experienced to bounce ideas off and challenge your thinking.
