Published May 23, 2012

Food and drink businesses in the East Midlands with bright ideas for innovation are being urged to apply for a share of a £100,000 pot of EU funding available via Food and Drink iNet.

Small and medium-sized companies can apply for funding of up to 40% for projects.

Previous grant winners include Northamptonshire’s Pickled Village (one of their new products is pictured above), which was assisted in getting into top London retail outlets, and Lincolnshire firm Libaeration, which developed the world’s first alcoholic foam.
