Food and Drink Innovation Network (Free)

What is the business support?

Highly experienced advisers that provide a free, impartial and confidential innovation service. Advisers can talk to you about your ideas, provide expert advice and help find contacts to solve problems. The service begins with an initial meeting to discuss business needs and work out a plan of action to support your food business. Events that keep attendees up to date on the latest developments and opportunities and allow attendees to network across the sector and with iNet advisers. Training seminars and events. Access to research institutions and academia, food specialists and technologists, marketing specialists, process consultants and engineers (including bespoke events). Enquire for possible grant funding and subsidised support for innovation projects.  


Support for businesses, universities and individuals working in the region’s food and drink sector.
