Over the last ten years, we’ve learned the insider tips, tricks, and best practices you need to set up a successful food business.

We know you are probably time-poor, and may even be juggling another job or a family as well as your new venture. You probably don’t have the time or interest to be Googling answers to your burning business questions (seriously, please don’t do this), or you might not even know what all your business questions are.

We’ve been through it all ourselves, and we’re confident that we have the knowledge and network to help you avoid those all-too-common new business pitfalls and get your business off the ground.

We’ve got all the ingredients for your success right here.


Food Business Coaching 1:1

Ready to get going fast? For that one-on-one experience or particularly sensitive topic, book a customised in-house consultation and get your new business on its feet quickly. We tailor this exactly to your needs and business, so you get all the relevant information and connections you need and nothing you don’t (because who has the time for that, really?).

If you’re ready to get on the fast-track, book in now for a private business consultation.


Food Workshops and Events

We cover a huge range of topics, including regulations and compliance, marketing, branding and packaging, consumer demand testing, and process development. We also run members-only events and half-day courses on specific pain-points for new businesses, many of which are held in an industrial kitchen that you can hire.

Jump onto our Eventbrite page to see a full event listing with prices, or read below for some descriptions of each.




We host informative, useful events and workshops every month for people just like you, where you can meet others in the industry, learn necessary skills, hear from relevant experts, and apply your new skills with practical exercises.


Recipe to Retail Workshops

If you have a great idea but need help with your direction , our most popular information session, Recipe to Retail is the one for you! It’s held monthly, and we’ll go through all the steps one by one to get you off the ground.


Food Focus Networking Events

Held every month in multiple locations across Melbourne, this is a fun, supportive environment where you can ask your questions, meet other people in the industry, and do some networking over a delicious lunch.


A Taste of Success Events

These are casual evening meet-ups where we hear from inspiring business owners doing something a bit different.
