Who we are

FoodLab Sydney is a not-for-profit food business incubator working to build a more equitable and inclusive food system, helping diverse and under-represented food entrepreneurs build financial freedom by doing what they love to do. 

Our program empowers and equips food entrepreneurs in their food business journey through:

  • industry-specific resources, advice and skill-building workshops

  • mentorship, community and networking opportunities

  • sales and market opportunities

We launched in 2019, inspired and based upon the original FoodLab model in Detroit, a globally recognised intervention in addressing food security, social justice, food justice, and grassroots food entrepreneurship. With support from the University of Sydney, the City of Sydney, FoodLab Detroit, and many other partnerships and collaborations we have since helped launch over 25 food businesses in the Sydney region. 

Our team lives and breathes food and community.

Supporting FoodLab means supporting gender, ethnic, and racial diversity in our local food system. 

Your donation can help support the next generation of culinary entrepreneurs. 

Since 2019 we have helped launch over 30 food businesses in Sydney.
