The Food and Drink Forum is inviting submissions to carry out an effective impact evaluation and “Summative Assessment” for the FEAST2 Project.

The FEAST2 project is part funded by ERDF, therefore there is a requirement to conduct a thorough Summative Assessment, and the Project Board wish to go further than this and require a report that will identify areas of potential development for the Growth Hub both to support the specific needs of food and drink businesses and in the context of Government/LEP policy and ambition to drive productivity and inclusive growth.

We therefore require practical recommendations as to how to develop and become well positioned within the landscape.

The FEAST2 project focuses on the two LEP areas; D2N2 and SEMLEP. (note that SEMLEP now includes NEP).

The project commenced in January 2019 assisting food and drink manufacturers.

Assistance is provided in one or many forms; a Diagnostic, Grant, Mentoring, Technical Support, Business Support, or Event attendance.

With over 800 food and drink manufacturers across both LEPS, we aim to engage with all of them in some way and promote or signpost them to appropriate provision suitable to their needs.
