Create. Contribute. Prosper.

The Food Foundry UK is a Food Startup Incubator that exists to grow and promote startups and early stage food businesses.

Our goal is to drive food startups to success by providing the key ingredients:

  • Co-working kitchen for food businesses to work
  • Shared workspace and meeting areas for entrepreneurs to run their businesses
  • Free business support and networks to minimise risks and mistakes
  • Sales opportunities on shelves across London and the UK

But The Food Foundry UK isn’t just about the bottom line as far as money goes.

As various boroughs of London are being developed, this is an opportunity for us, as locals, to put a stamp on our city. The Food Foundry UK is one piece of our effort to sculpt the future of London. A future that is grown organically, from within, to promote our businesses, to create our own culture, and to establish the community that we want to be waking up to each morning.
