Devon Business Start-Up Award


Have you started a food related business since October 2016?

Is your turnover less than £70,000 per year? 

Are you based within Devon using local products, ingredients and/or suppliers?

If you can answer yes to all 3 questions then then why not apply for our Devon Business Start-up Award and let the Dartmouth Food Festival promote your fledgling company!

The chosen company will benefit from:

A free 3 day pitch at the 2018 Dartmouth Food Festival

An hour discussion with the Festival’s PR and Marketing team (The Marketing Shed)

A tailored marketing and PR campaign run via the festival social media and other channels

The chance to talk to a business start-up and financial expert

A ½ day photo shoot with Original Image Photography and a selection of images for your own use

Also on offer is a double page spread, "Business Profile" editorial in Taste Buds magazine. Taste Buds magazine, is one of the Dartmouth Food Festival media sponsors and this amazing prize is worth approximately £1,200.


To apply just fill in the application form, send it to us by May 31st and keep your fingers crossed!

You may apply for a pitch in the usual way as well and if you are the subsequent winner of our Devon Business Start-up Award your pitch fee will be refunded following the Festival in October
