Sharing knowledge and experience is the key to success
The Food Entrepreneurs Club (FEC) aims to unite a new generation of food crafters by creating a network for young entrepreneurs to share knowledge and experience about how to run a small food business successfully.
Over the course of the last decade, a new generation of passionate Foodies have been taking the lead and are forming a serious alternative to the ever dominant industrial food complex. By rediscovering and refining traditional craft dishes combined with the tools of the digital age, these quality driven entrepreneurs are creating new ways to bring quality food to the attention of the general public. A local terroir’s offers are publicized, old family recipes experience a renaissance, while pop up restaurants, food trucks, and local organic markets finally have a real chance to compete with “Big Food”.
The Food Entrepreneurs Club intends to build up a nation wide network so that passionate food operators can debate about how to deal with the challenges of today, develop ideas into plans, as well as offer business assistance and consultancy to those in need.
The Food Entrepreneurs Club goes Stadt Land Food
