Bord Bia’s Foodworks Programme Open to Applicants

Food Works is a government supported accelerator programme that helps develop the next generation of scaleable and export driven Irish food businesses.

Food is an important part of the Irish economy, representing 12.3% of total export revenue today, and the industry is projected to be worth €19 billion by 2025. The programme aims to the people and businesses who are creating our food future.

If you have an innovative food product that satisfies a genuine market need, and an ambition for global success, you should meet with the Food Works team. The Food Works journey begins with an introductory meeting followed by a formal application. Finalists will be shortlisted for Bootcamp from the applications based on a set of criteria including innovation, market insight, ability to scale and export, commercial potential and strength of team. The successful programme participants are selected at an industry-led Bootcamp. Pictured is our client Conor Coughlan of Black Twist who took part in the most recent Foodworks programme.
