Established and growing food and drink businesses will share their experiences of start-up with new and early stage producers and manufacturers at the end of November.
The ONE Food, Drink & Agriculture Start-up Programme webinar on 30 November will provide practical insights from three business founders who are successfully growing their food and drink producing businesses in north east Scotland.
Scott Fraser of Angus & Oink has grown his business through consumer-focus and collaboration and building a strong brand to achieve growth in the UK and international markets.
Jane Mackie of rora dairy has built a successful business with a strong foundation in product and market research informing her product, market and brand development choices, and differentiation from competitors.
Pete Dignan of Lost Loch Spirits will highlight how flexibility and collaboration have been vital to the development of the distilling business.
Peter Cook, director of food, drink and agriculture at Opportunity North East, said: “Starting a new business involves many choices that can be critical to future success. We are giving pre-start, new start and early-stage manufacturing, processing or producer businesses the chance to learn from people who have successfully made the transition from start-up to growth business. The peer to peer forum and real-life examples will help those embarking on their own growth journeys to gain valuable insights and make informed decisions.”
Jane MacLeod, ONE FDA Business Growth Manager, will host the session that will include a Q&A with the speakers and advice on next steps for start-ups.
