Why you should enter the Food Challenge
The very nature of being in the food sector means that you are operating in a sector that is fast moving and exciting. The product development process of a product from initial idea to final product has its challenges but the feeling of knowing that you are delighted with your product takes some beating.
So your food product is great, but what about the business?
Many food businesses grow from there initial small business often being so engrossed in their product that they forget about the all-important paperwork, systems and processes. Some of the classic business failings being
- Orders may be taken informally which can ultimately cause significant issues
- Web sites are developed on a home grown basis and may not reflect the credibility of your product
- Finances can become strained.
- Producers often forget about the bigger picture and where they will be in the medium to longer term i.e. 3 to 5 years
- Fundamentally causing issues such as whether their branding matches their growth plans and whether their resources match their ambitions.
