Bread & Jam has so far helped hundreds of entrepreneurs break into the food and drink business. With this know-how we have pulled together all of the essential information that you need to get your business started into a comprehensive one-day bootcamp.

So whether you’ve spotted a gap in the market, or you’ve just developed an amazing food product, or you’ve already been selling your product at local markets, this bootcamp will give you the tools you need to get to the next step.

We have pulled together a team of carefully selected industry experts, who have worked for many household names (including Innocent, Sainsburys, Pip & Nut, Vita Coco and others), to run this highly practical course.

You will come away with the skills and knowledge to develop your idea or product. You will have an action plan of the next steps. You will have a clear understanding of how to avoid wasting valuable time and money. And you will be part of a new community of entrepreneurs who can support you and share your journey.
