TRADEIT Craft Dairy

The TRADEIT Project

supports small to medium sized Traditional Food Producers and who work within the Dairy, Meat or Bakery sectors. We can help in a number of ways including: access to training and expertise from some of Europe’s leading specialists; finding new markets and partners across Europe; finding the business solutions and technologies that will allow your company to grow whilst retaining control of your brand; and help you bring your own innovations to market.

The project is focused on supporting companies in the dairy, meat and bakery sectors. The project has 19 partners based in the UK, Ireland, Poland, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Finland, Portugal and Italy and will run for 3 years. 9 Regional Traditional Food Knowledge and Technology Transfer Hubs have been established, including Coventry University Enterprises.

The hubs will provide access to a range of support, including training and technology transfer:


  • Food safety and quality

  • Food labelling and marketing for geographical indications and traditional foods
  • Supply chain management and distribution

Transfer of Technology
