The Seed Fund Opens for 2018 Showcasing UK Food Start-ups

The Seed Fund aims to showcase the food talent in the UK by supporting start-up ideas to become fully formed brands and become long-term, sustainable businesses.

The Seed Fund was established by food brand experts, The Collaborators, in 2013 and is supported by a range of PR, social marketing and private equity firms.

Now in its fifth year, the Seed Fund supports new food brands in the UK to become successful and inspiring businesses. The key aim of the Fund is to help start-ups and small producers in UK grow and flourish within the food and beverage sector.

The Fund is looking for applications from small producers in the UK who have been awarded a great taste award in the previous year as well as start-ups that have been trading for less than four years. The overall winner will receive a year’s worth of support from an expert team of Seed Fund mentors as well as £100,000 worth of branding and marketing development from The Collaborators.

A total of 12 companies will be selected for The Seed Fund Academy. This is a series of workshops, mentoring sessions and talks that will take place throughout the country over the course of the summer season. A variety of industry experts will host the academy, which will cover a wide spectrum of disciplines such as social media, marketing, raising finance and food photography.

The next deadline for applications is 30 April 2018.
