The Taste 4 Success Skillnet works with its members to identify and drive training and upskilling in the food, seafood and drink sectors, to meet business, people and performance needs. In particular, we encourage and support the development of new foods, new drinks, new skills and new opportunities to grow and promote Irish Food, Seafood and Drink products, and to support job-seekers in gaining new skills and work opportunities across the sectors.

Our members include multinationals, large, medium, small indigenous Irish companies, and a growing number of micro and artisan producers involved in food, seafood and drink (micro brewing) production.

Funding is available to trainees/employees/owner-managers working in the food, seafood, beverage and related sectors; e.g. logistics, distribution, catering, hospitality, restaurant, or any operation involving the production, supply, delivery of food and beverage.
