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.

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.
