Sustainable Food Businesses Get Ready To Scale

Following the success of their Feeding the City: Start Up programme – for entrepreneurs at the start of their journey – Impact Hub Kings Cross have developed the Feed the City Accelerate programme to help with the next stage of growth. The programme brings together thought leaders in food sustainability, large scale buyers, enterprise support providers and investors with the shared goal of supporting social or environmental impact driven food enterprises with B2B revenue streams to grow and flourish. This programme is funded thanks to support of Players of the People's Postcode Lottery, through the Postcode Innovation Trust. 

Drawing on insights from scaling food enterprises and expertise from EIT Food, Sustain, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Charity, Food Chain, Big Society Capital and large scale buyers, they have co-designed the programme to help participants overcome the key challenges that sustainable food businesses face when they come to scale:

The programme will provide benefits such as access to expert business analysis, mentoring and support from experienced coaches and industry heavyweights, six month’s Impact Hub “Connect” membership and the opportunity to meet and network with buyers, including supermarket chains, restaurants and major contract catering companies.
