Small independent food traders like those who sell street food, as well as those with established businesses, can benefit from the advice, support and training on offer from the IFDA.  The Academy is run by Leeds Business School with the support of Leeds City Council.  With industry experts being at the helm of delivery, the independents can professionalise, develop and grow, which for one of the most dynamic sectors in Leeds is a positive and reassuring way forward.

Any trader who signs up to membership of the IFDA will realise a range of growth benefits, such as networking events – always a great opportunity to share with like-minded people.  There are also mentoring days, where traders and mentors are carefully matched so as to help develop strategies.  Masterclasses – workshops which focus on specific issues – can be of great help to start-up businesses in areas such as finance and marketing.

With such a thriving, knowledgeable and receptive market in the City, the IFDA has an ever more significant role to play.  So – whether your particular passion is Korean, Caribbean, coffee or tea and cake, there’s always the need to make the business run smoothly and, should you choose, to make the most of the opportunities available to you.  To meet and exceed your customers’ expectations, you might just need a little more business know-how.
