The Skills Share mentoring programme, co-ordinated by Bord Bia, in co-operation with FDII, will help small companies formalise access to the expertise available within the industry in the key areas of strategy, account management and logistics.

The initiative is designed to encourage and share best practice and learnings between small and large food companies and represents a fantastic opportunity for companies to work together and co-operate for the benefit of the Irish food and drink industry. Mentors on the programme include Coca-Cola, Kelloggs, Flahavans, Kraft and Glanbia Consumer Foods.

The mentoring consists of four hours one to one mentoring over a period of three months.
