Food Xcel has been developed to help aspiring food entrepreneurs move their idea forward through a combination of progressive workshops, networking opportunities with food agencies, industry experts, and entrepreneurs and a chance to compete for a $25,000 Food Ignition seed capital award. Our first Food Xcel Winner, Ryan Abdallah, was awarded for his Marouns garlic paste which he has since launched in Sobeys across Atlantic Canada and other retail locations.
Food Xcel breaks down the process of developing a food product into smaller steps to help you make progress, test your assumptions, and build momentum. We understand that every entrepreneur has different strengths so we have established a support team that can help you as you build your food business.
Join us on November 29th to register to participate in Food Xcel. We will also be hosting Peter Van Stolk, Founder of Jones Soda, to speak on “Lessons in Building Consumer Loyalty from the Ground-up”.
