Ready to grow? Scale up with our facilities and expertise.

Innovation and business development

We offer a range of resources to help your food business innovate and grow.

  • Product and process development
  • Facilities to help you fast track R&D and trial commercial runs
  • Access to new food technologies
  • Connections to industry and export experts
  • Advice and consultancy services

Innovation doesn’t just mean new products and processes. We’re all about connecting you with experts who can help optimise your business model, de-risk your investment decisions, and maximise your chances of success. A busy programme of technical and business workshops, courses, and events keep you up to date with market innovation, and on top of your game.


Business planning comes before applying for funding. The more fully formed your business idea is, the more support you’ll get from advisors, mentors, and funding officers.

We don’t provide funding but our Business Development Managers can discuss your funding options, support you with your business planning, and connect you with the right people.
