We have just finished two Start Your Own Food Businesses (CREATE) programmes in two of Lambeth’s most deprived areas – Loughborough Junction and Gipsy Hill.
It’s of course all down to the entreprenneurs themselves but the CREATE programme gave people a chance to network and meet food business owners in Brixton, Loughborough Junction and West Norwood & Crystal Palace, and learn about the process of setting up a food business. They also got the chance to present their food and business ideas to a panel of experts and to one another, meet Lambeth food safety officials, and take they Level 2 food hygiene certificate. To top it all they received a full day of technical training on costing, marketing, licensing, sustainability, and much more from Greenwich based community food consultancy GCDA.
Watch this space for more information about our entreprenneurs and hear their stories over coming months.
