Our Partnership represents a robust, forward thinking and well connected team.

It combines VET organisations and specific agri food industry champions drawn from profit, non-profit and public sectors spanning operational right through to policy levels. Project partners have been assembled on the basis of their reach and connectivity to the food sector, VET and policy channels in their respective countries. Their connections are important to support the spread of a “Healthy Food” creative and innovative culture inside both small food supply chain businesses and their support networks of policy makers and influencers


CIDO will lead the project. CIDO is a proven transnational lead partner with a strong agri food focus.  Led by Brian Hunter, the organisation works closely with the agri food & life sciences sector which in Feb 2014 employed over 10,000 people directly in the Craigavon Borough.   Their industry-specific knowledge and networking reach to their counterpart agency colleagues and District Councils throughout Northern Ireland ensures they have the reach and organisational strength to lead this project.
