It is a voluntary social enterprise managed by a board, made up of local community activists and representatives of statutory agencies. It is located in Ardee, Co. Louth and provides low cost facilities and services to support the food sector.
A fully fitted kitchen, featuring the most modern equipment and work areas is available on a timeshare rental basis. This is especially suitable for once off large scale commissions or special orders. The kitchen will also be of special interest to artisan producers for developing new products in a secure, approved facility. A training area adjoins the kitchen for food courses or demonstrations. A CCTV system links the training room and kitchen, allowing food/cookery demonstrations to be beamed into the training room. This makes it most suitable for staff training/ conferences and product promotion.
