As part of the Programme for Government, Welsh Government wishes to support local food and drink producers / suppliers and make it easier for them to access public sector food supply chain opportunities by having the necessary food safety accreditation. Welsh Government is opening a short grant scheme, administered by Menter a Busnes, to fund either SALSA or STS accreditations for Welsh SME food and drink businesses.
Applicants must be an existing Welsh food and drink business that is a micro, small or medium scale enterprise [less than 250 employees and an annual turnover under £42m) ] and predominantly involved in the production and distribution of edible goods. They must also demonstrate their main operational presence is within Wales. Applicants principally involved in the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages are not eligible for support through this grant scheme.
To submit a bid for funding, please visit Sell2Wales to access the application form and Scheme Rules. The closing date for applications is 20th January 2022.
