I was speaking with Conor Hyde in Bullseye Marketing this morning and I will be doing a post soon on the branding and packaging design work they have done in the food space – many, many artisan and local food brands have passed through their hands.
In the meantime he sent me information on this event coming up Wednesday 16th Feb in Inchydoney Lodge. It follows a very successful one last year at which there were 150 attendees.
Some Event Details:
6.40 TESCO IRELAND : Topic: “Local Irish Food opportunities with Tesco Ireland”.
Carmel-Anne Brennan, Tesco Ireland, Commercial Business Manager Dairy, Chilled Convenience, & Local Irish Food.
7.10 LOCAL FOOD PRODUCER : Topic: “How to develop a successful Irish Food Brand on a tight budget”
Sean Og Duffy, Truly Irish.
7.40 LOCAL FOOD PRODUCER : Topic: “Things to know before you start a food business”
Michael O’ Neill, Irish Atlantic Sea Salt & Irish Atlantic Abalone.
It kicks off at 6pm and finished at 9. You can see more in the pdf: Cork Food Forum 2011 and book in here.
I won’t be able to make it but wish I could.
PS – they are looking for foodie bloggers and twitters to help out on the night – I did this at the Tipperary Food Producers event last year and it was great fun. Let Paul www.twitter.com/Omaniblog know if you are interested 🙂
