About the Food Destination Development Plan 

The Ards and North Down Council Food Destination Development Plan (FDDP) aims to position Ards and North Down borough as a premier food destination on the island of Ireland.  Further information on the FDDP is available here.

The next step in the delivery of the FDDP is to identify a tailored programme of support for businesses involved in the Food and Drink sector, including producers, processors and hospitality providers within the borough.

About the Food Destination Business Survey 

The Agri-Food Business Development Centre at Ulster University Business School has designed this survey, which is aimed at owners or managers of food and drink sector businesses. The results will shape the content, timing and delivery of future business support and training to drive sales growth and increase visitor spend. 

Getting Involved 

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your input is vital to shape future support within the sector. All answers will remain confidential. Please can you respond by Monday 4 March 2019.

Some parts of the survey have been tailored to look at specific needs within the sector.
