One-to-one mentoring is available to food businesses to assist them with a wide variety of business issues which they may face, from marketing to finance to export planning.

The Local Enterprise Offices Cork offer a free Mentor Programme which is designed to match up the knowledge, skills, insights and entrepreneurial capability of experienced business practitioners with small business owner/ managers who need practical and strategic one to one advice and guidance. The mentor contributes independent, informed observation and advice to aid decision making.
