Meet Our 2018 FoodService Academy
News | 30th July 2018
The Foodservice Academy is a programme that Musgrave Marketplace run in conjunction with Bord Bia to help small Irish artisan producers grow and develop in the foodservice market. Now in its third year, we work with the participants offering mentoring and guidance in areas such as digital marketing, QA, supply chain and distribution. We love working with some of Ireland’s best local producers and growers and seeing the passion they have for their products. The 2018 Foodservice academy products will be available to purchase from selected Musgrave MarketPlace sites from September.
