The Food Foundry UK

The Food Foundry: Londons first Co-Working Kitchen Incubator to Open

16 March 2016 10:15


The Food Foundry is UK’s first food startup incubator to provide a complete ‘Concept to Shelf’ solution for new food businesses. We exist to lower the barriers to entry for food businesses, and that includes providing more affordable access to commercial kitchen space.

We provide a co-working kitchen facility in Hackney, London (E2 9EZ) where food businesses can work amongst each other, sharing knowledge, skills and building a culture defined by food.

Members of The Food Foundry benefit from:
- Access to SALSA/HACCP/BRC kitchen space that’s available 24/7
- Shelf space for member products with partner concessions and sales opportunities
- Continuous support through a structured programme of workshops and mentorship
- Access to business services, networks of industry specialists and retail buyer contacts
- Warm introductions to retail buyers through events & partners
- Co-working in a collaborative and innovative community of likeminded food startups

Unlike other incubators, The Food Foundry doesn’t take any equity at the outset, and members are encouraged to use the kitchen and member services for as long as they need. The Food Foundry aligns itself with the needs of it’s members so that all companies grow together, building a community around food.

We offer tailored monthly packages based on your monthly kitchen usage. Simply choose the time of day you want to use the kitchen and how many hours you want.
Anytime Use:
Flexible kitchen hire at any time of day or night, 7 days a week. Come in whenever you need.
Nights & Weekends:
Kitchen is available for use between 6pm and 6am for those early starter and night owls.
