Objectives and competences

What makes a food business special but at the same time similar to businesses in other sectors? Although there are shared concepts and tools, a food business has a unique context that needs to be understood. This course allows students to focus on expertise, authenticity and credibility, which are essential concepts in building and managing a successful food business. The training is based on case studies and meaningful stories of food products, brands and services told by real people: entrepreneurs and chefs highly interested in offering the market a unique and superior proposition.
