High Impact Business Cluster

​The High Impact Business Cluster is part of the Welsh Government's cluster development programme.

Selected SME CEOs, MDs and Welsh Government Food and Drink Industry Board members meet quarterly with the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre, Cardiff and the Food Technology Centre, Llangefni at various Welsh locations.

Food and drink businesses benefit from collaboration and the support provided by the food centres and the Welsh Government. The collaboration takes a number of forms and includes:

  • Sharing resources (e.g. equipment)
  • Joint sales initiatives (e.g. co-operation to enter a new export market)
  • Access to market insights (e.g. market research)
  • Access to cluster knowledge (e.g. Food Centre expertise)
