Diploma Speciality Food Production"The course is specifically geared towards start-ups and small producers. Anybody should be able to do it and it should benefit everyone. Some may get more out of it than others, but I say to students at the start of the year, you know what you want to get out of it; you know where you are. The best thing is to apply everything to what you need, but it is an academic diploma so to achieve it embrace every part."
