Melbourne's North Kitchen & Food Incubator initiative is a partnership between Melbourne Innovation Centre (MIC), Melbourne Polytechnic and Melbourne’s North Food Group (MNFG).
It is an incubator program for start-ups looking to realise their dreams of joining Melbourne’s food scene.
The incubator offers users a commercial kitchen space at Melbourne Polytechnic's Preston hospitality centre. This project will receive more dedicated spaces at the institute’s Epping campus later in the year, with support from the City of Whittlesea.
Participants have access to a arrange of support services, including expertise from Melbourne Polytechnic’s educators across compliance and food safety, as well as a host of specialist short courses and vocational learning opportunities.
Program goers will get access to MIC’s small business training and professional development offerings, as well as engagement with MNFG’s 400+ businesses.
The establishment of the Food and Kitchen incubator has been generously seed funded by the Brunswick Business Incubator Melbourne Polytechnic and the City of Whittlesea.
