Foodpreneur 2017

The search for the UK's most innovative Foodpreneur is on!

Being bold and creative is intrinsic to how we run our business and we want to support others in their quest to make their own business dreams a reality.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Virgin Start Up to launch a competition to find the next big ‘Foodpreneur’. The competition combines the power of our brands, knowledge and expertise and invite entries from aspiring food entrepreneurs from across the UK.

From the entries received, eight semi-finalists will be awarded the opportunity to showcase their business in a customised pop up at one of intu’s prime regional shopping centres and online at for one week. Four finalists will then pitch and present their business to a panel of top industry leaders with the final winner being chosen in September.

The Foodpreneur 2017 winner will get the unique opportunity to run their business in one of our centres and online for six weeks and benefit from advice and support from both intu and Virgin Start Up.
