How many years has it been going?
This is the much anticipated opening event for Local Enterprise Week Cork City 2020. This is part of a series of events run by Enterprise Ireland every year to support local businesses.
What was the inspiration to start it?
According to Paul McGuirk, Head of Enterprise at the Local Enterprise Office, Cork City the sustainability agenda is moving fast – so fast, that some food stakeholders are encountering a dilemma when trying to answer the question “Where to next?”. This short seminar will bring together a panel of experts who will share their views on the journey they have undertaken to date. For food manufacturers and foodservice operators attending, this will be the perfect opportunity to develop their thinking and explore a positioning for their business in relation to this topic.
