Coast to Capital's Growth Hub Account Manager, Grant Baker worked with the directors at The Chichester Biltong Company to help the company and directors, develop their leadership skills, overcome barriers to growth and help set a new direction for this fast growing business.
The support Grant Baker extended to The Chichester Biltong Company, has had a significant impact on the company's ability to take control of their fast growing business and improve productivity and profitability.
BEEFIT Snacks started in a shoe box, and grew until untilit has became one of the largest biltong drying chambers in the UK. Their chamber is fitted with the most sophisticated and hi-tech equipment to create the finest biltong snacks in a range of delicious flavours.
The farm is located on the beautiful Sussex coast and it's been said that their biltong is considered the best in Europe! With prestigious awards under our belt to prove it.
They marinade the beef in the finest herbs and spices, before hanging it to dry for 4-5 days. We then slice the biltong, bag it and send to you direct from our Beefit Snacks biltong facility.
"Our initial involvement with Coast to Capital related to a grant application to assist in the funding of an additional factory for our business. We were assigned a "mentor” who worked tirelessly with us to prepare our application. This assistance resulted in us being successful in our grant application and we have now completed the construction of our new factory. It is a business changing step for us which we would not have been able to achieve without the grant from Coast to Capital. The support we received was fantastic and the follow up has been equally helpful. It is not just about the grant, it is much more and we have a number of meetings with people that Coast to Capital have put us in touch with that have helped shaped our thinking and therefore our business. We continue to have a dialogue with Coast to Capital and in all regards this has been beneficial to advancing our company."
