What makes a food business special, yet similar to business in other industries? Although, there are shared concepts and tools, a food business has unique context that you need to understand.
In this course you will focus on experientiality, authenticity and credence, vital ideas for you to create and manage a thriving food business.

Your learning will happen through case studies and meaningful stories of food products, brands and services, told by real people: entrepreneurs and chefs who are 'on fire' about bringing to the market a unique and superior proposition.
