The Food Glorious Food Competition has been established to champion the best food and drinks producers from across the Cotswolds. It aims to support, inspire and nurture these businesses ‘from idea to shelf’.
Applicants will have an opportunity to win a cash injection into their business by pitching their product or idea, in a Dragons’ Den style, to a panel of five local industry entrepreneurs and business experts.
The winner will be awarded £10,000 in cash for their business or business idea. They will also gain access to business development support and have their products stocked in Co-op Midcounties food stores. Runners-up will gain a place in the Co-op’s ‘Best of our Counties’ range of locally sourced food and drink.
Food and drink producing businesses with a product idea or start-up, based in the Cotswolds with products produced within the Cotswolds region, may apply. This region includes Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire.
The competition closes at midnight on 31 January 2020.
