Regional Food Programme 2013/14 17 December 2013

The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) has opened the Regional Food Programme for a second tranche of applications

 

Applications are invited from eligible organisations for projects that will be completed by 31 March 2014. State Aid restrictions mean that only not–for–profit agri–food groups representative of producers and/or processors who have local membership, registered charities or regional development agencies can apply. All applications must be received by Friday 10 January 2014. 

The aim of the Programme is to promote quality regional food and to help increase its consumption by provision of financial support in four key areas namely: Regional fairs / shows, information programmes, award ceremonies, and seminars / workshops.

Since its inception in 2007, the programme has assisted the formation and development of many well known food promotion initiatives such as the Food Pavilion at Balmoral Show, Dalriada Festival, the Open Farm Weekend and Belfast Restaurant Week.

An application form for funding can be downloaded from http://www.dardni.gov.uk/northern-ireland-regional-food-programme or obtained from:
