Helping hand from the Government

A FREE service offering small and medium sized food companies in the South East financial, technical and marketing support, is available from government via a new scheme called the Food Technology Enterprise Hub (FTEH).

The FTEH provides support on two levels. Firstly, for companies with innovative technology and entrepreneurial management (Portfolio Members) intense business support is available including in the form of mentors, access to venture capitalists and assistance with applying for Government grants.

For more mainstream food companies (Network Members) a network of technical and business support is available from the FTEH partners: Reading Scientific Services Ltd; East Malling Research; Natural Resources Institute; Kent Business School; Leatherhead Food International and other organisations.
