Ambassador Programme


Application for FOTE 2021 Ambassadors

We are now accepting applications for our Food on the Edge Ambassador Programme. If you are interested in applying for our programme, please fill in the form below. You can also nominate someone to be an ambassador. 

Each year we receive a large number of inspirational applicants hoping to partake and speak at Food On The Edge. These applicants are very often doing wonderful things for Irish food and developing the industry in their own way. While we have a limited capacity of speaking slots, we wanted to do something to acknowledge these food champions. We hope this initiative will widen the reach of the Food On The Edge and act as its legacy into the future, eventually expanding onto a global scale.

Six people who are working to change their food landscape and are exemplifying the Food On The Edge ethos will be selected to be the Food On The Edge Ambassadors for 2021. The Ambassadors will be invited to speak in a discussion panel at Food On The Edge 2021 on the work they are doing, as well as receiving a two-day ticket to Food On The Edge and a profile on the Food On The Edge website.

Closing Date: Thursday 1st July 2021

Terms & Conditions 
The successful applicant will receive a ticket to attend FOTE2021 (Mon 18th & Tues 19th Oct 2021). Flights and Accommodation will not be covered by Food on the Edge.
