Our vision:

“To assist the stimulation of Healthy & Creative Food Regions in UK/Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, Hungary and Ireland.”

Our project has 3 clear and simple objectives:

1. To develop a toolkit to assist and train regional stakeholders to create a Healthy Food Regional Partnership. This toolkit is called the “Healthy Food Partnership Toolkit” and will comprise a programme of learning actions and guidance on how to create a healthy food region.

2. To create a set of open educational resources to be delivered via an online course for Food SME Owners and Employees. This course is called “Creative ways to produce, market and distribute healthy food” and will focus on teaching Owners and employees how to implement greater innovation and creativity in their business.

3. To test an innovative industry based employability training module with a cohort of young unemployed. This will be industry based learning delivered by Food SME Owners through providing practical placements for learners who will acquire new skills for new employment/self employment.
