With its startup support programme, food collegen, the Food Cluster is showing its commitment to Bavarian founders. The focus is on the field of product development. The target group for the food collegen programme is specifically farmers producing food, in addition to the usual food startups in food retail.
Innovative food products and production processes come to fruition in many recently-founded companies. Flavour is one of the most important factors determining success. Through the Food Cluster and its network of experts in the field of product development from its food lab Raum Null, food startups are offered consulting opportunities and personalised suggestions for improvement for their products in coaching sessions, webinars and workshops. In addition, practical information is provided about important steps in product development, from consumer research to sensory tests. There is therefore nothing standing in the way of Bavarian startups when it comes to successfully founding a business.
