Local Food Business Start Up Event – I am invited to speak :)

If you are living like me in Lambeth and you are interested in starting your own Food Business, then join me on 28th of April at the Impact Hub Brixton for an evening full of networking, local food & drinks and interesting stories from entrepreneurs like Papi’s Pickles, Drunken Diary and myself about what it means to start up your own business  – the good and the bad 😉

*FORMAL INVITE*

Want to be part of developing a healthier and more sustainable local food economy in Lambeth?

Interested in starting your own food business?

Involved in local enterprise networks?

Join us for the Lambeth Food Partnership’s second CREATE networking event where you’ll have the opportunity to hear more about starting your own food business, connect with local food entrepreneurs and find information about organisations offering support and advice to food start-ups.

The Lambeth Food Partnership launched CREATE in 2014, building on the success of the previous ‘So You Want to Start Your Own Food Business’ workshops in Brixton and West Norwood. CREATE is designed to support budding food entrepreneurs through a series of events covering everything from business planning to food safety, premises to sourcing ingredients. Thirty start-ups have completed the first year and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The LFP will be inviting applications for the second round from June.

As part of this event, attendees will have the opportunity hear from some of those who have benefitted from the programme, with presentations by:

Noemi Dulischewski – a passionate local foodie and founder of Brünch, a Berlin Brunch pop up concept which tours London’s quirkiest venues and supports local suppliers. It is Noemi’s goal to bring family, friends and strangers together to ‘break bread’ and enjoy each other’s company while experiencing a bit of Berlin in London. 

Chana Mani – co-founder of Papi’s Pickles, a family-run social enterprise. Papi’s Pickles cook authentic South Indian and Sri Lankan food, and fresh pickles, using the best seasonal, local and organic ingredients for events, pop ups and street food markets, while working with unemployed women from these communities.

Plus our special guest speaker:

Angela Wilkins, founder of Drunken Dairy – booze-infused ice creams and sorbets which are hand-made using only natural ingredients.

Angela decided to take the leap after attending one of Lambeth’s ‘So You Want to Start Your Own Food Business?’ workshops in West Norwood in 2013.  The company has since gone from strength to strength and now sells at markets and events across London, caters for corporate events, festivals, weddings and parties. Angela will be talking about her start-up journey, and offering insights and advice to other budding food entrepreneurs.

There will also be information available from organisations offering support and advice to local start-ups, plus catering by CREATE alumni and a selection of drinks.
