UMIP-supported social enterprise launches the Recipe for Success course to support new Manchester food enterprises
Former University of Manchester student Amy Win has launched a new food business training course for local people through her social enterprise 4Lunch.
Amy received funding and support through a dedicated Social Enterprise competition managed by UMIP to start 4Lunch after graduating with a degree in Politics and Economics in 2013. After 5 years in business, Amy has launched a new course to inspire the next generation of food entrepreneurs.
So why this course? Amy says that through her work at 4Lunch, she found a lot of culinary talent out there in the community and people wanted to know how they could start a food business from home.
“As someone without a business background, I relied on the support, generosity and knowledge of others to help me get started with my social enterprise. This included accessing expertise from UMIP in the early stages. It has always been fundamental to my work at 4Lunch to give opportunities to people whenever I can and keep the circle of learning going.”
The Recipe for Success course provides all the information and support needed to establish successful and sustainable food businesses and community food projects.
To promote the new course, Amy is also putting on a series of food business start up events at various venues around Greater Manchester. These events are open to anyone interested in starting a food-based project and is a chance to meet established food business owners.
