Building healthy and creative food regions is the aim of the new ERASMUS project called Nourish EU, which has been launched recently in Craigavon, Northern Ireland. Motivated by two closely-related issues of obesity and poverty the project will include all key actors in food policy trying to establish a new approach towards healthy, affordable and sustainable food.
Nourish EU partners are:
• Craigavon Industrial Development Organisation (project leader, Northern Ireland)
• Food Hub (Ireland)
• Momentum (Ireland)
• Canice Consulting (United Kingdom)
• Euro Perspectives Foundation (Bulgaria)
• Agricultural VET Centre FM KASZK (Hungary)
As Orla Casey of Momentum explains, this strategic partnership will work closely together to create a new set of educational resources for SME owners and employees focusing on the creative ways to produce, market and distribute healthy food. The aim is to up skill the knowledge of food producers on how to implement greater innovation and creativity in their businesses through a free online course. Once ready, the learning material will be tested with students coming from the educational institutions of the partnership.
EUROPEA wishes Nourish EU a lot of success and a great time !!
