1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

Small food businesses were approaching us for help with their startups but could not afford professional help. This encouraged us to develop a course tailored for food startups that teaches them all the essential skills they need to know. We are food business owners ourselves and also food technologists and product developers. Together we have a wide range of experience in the food industry, a wealth of experience and we are well versed in the industry in Australia. This service makes expert advice and training available to food businesses at an affordable cost.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

help food business owners learn how to be more successful, understand the rules and regulations in Australia while creating and selling a new food product.

It does this by…

…teaching food business owners the skills they need through an online training platform designed and developed by food business owners, food technologists and food product developers. The online program is accessible on any device and includes videos, pdf workbooks, templates and industry contacts along with easy-to-follow lessons on 25 key topics.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

…we have removed the main barriers to access to business experts with an online course that can be taken by anyone, anywhere in the country. You no longer need to pay lots of money or commute to a major city to get the support you need to start your own food business.

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

Small food businesses used the trial and error method, thus putting their business and their customers at risk. Food business consultants were expensive to access and mainly worked with large food companies rather than small startups. For a startup without a lot of funds, there were little to no options for expert help and guidance.
