Funding for food and drink projects and businesses!

Funding for food and drink projects and businesses!
A project is offering £10,000 grants to businesses and community groups to develop local food supply chains.

The Food4Growth programme in Torfaen, Caerphilly and Monmouthshire has two grant schemes available, aimed at increasing the amount of locally-produced food, creating new food networks and offering a sustainable solution to food poverty.

The Rural Business Scheme is open to businesses who have innovative ideas to add value to their produce, such as diversifying or looking at new processes like vertical growing.

The Community Food Scheme is open to third sector organisations, community groups or public sector services with ideas of new ways to tackle food poverty, such as growing fresh produce or linking with local welfare services. 

The Food4Growth project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.

Applications to both schemes can apply for up to £10,000 to develop their idea, but funds are limited.

Please note the deadline for applications is the 30th May, with a project end date of August 2022.
