The Food Industry Centre Business Partnership Programme is an annual membership scheme that gives companies access to a range of benefits such as technical support, training and food labelling advice.

The Business Partnership Programme is flexible and is tailored to the needs of the company. The Partner selects from a menu and "spends" their points during the year on the most useful support.  Our Partners are able to access the Centre's facilities, consult with the staff and benefit from a close working relationship with industry experts.

The membership costs are realistic for food companies and provide outstanding value for money.
