The Lovin Dublin Food Start-Up Prize Long List Announced

Lovin-Dublin-Paint

It's been an exciting time in Lovin Dublin HQ as over 200 of the best food start-ups in the country sent in samples of their products for us to consider for our €25k food start up award last week. The competition has been high and it's it's been a tough job whittling down the list from 200 to 25 but we have done it. 

One of these 25 companies will win a prize that any food start up could only dream of. The list will be shortlisted later this evening to the final 10 entrants and tonight at our Lovin Dublin Show Live the winner will be chosen by our expert panel of judges. 

The €25k prize could literally change the winner's business. We want to extend a huge thank you to our partners for providing our winner with the following:

  • SuperValu for providing €5,000 cash
  • Bord Bia will arrange membership of Bord Bia's Brand Forum and Origin Green
  • PR360 for public relations advice
  • Philip Lee will be providing €5,000 for pre-investment legal services
  • Picstash for free product photography services
  • Miralize are providing a free website, brand and product design
  • Blueface arranging telephony services
  • CEO of Socialmedia.ie will provide a Social Media Startup Workshop
