Devon County Council’s Business Promotion Grant is open for applications. The grant is part of the Devon Delivers programme which highlights the benefits of locating a business within Devon.
Grants of up to £1000 are available for local businesses to cover the direct exhibiting costs of attend trade shows and events throughout the UK, allowing them to promote their product or service to a national and international audience.
One of the successful applicants from the last round of the grant was Powderkeg Brewery, a brewery based in Woodbury Salterton.
Jessica Magill, Co-owner of Powderkeg Brewery, said: “The Craft Beer Rising event is incredibly important for our industry, and we sold £1,000 of beer to a wholesaler and £10,000 to a national distributor. We’re still a relatively new business, having only been selling our beer for less than two years, but the grant enabled us to promote our brand, and to raise our profile. Having a presence at the show also helped to cement a deal to supply ASDA stores nationwide, which has helped take us from being a local brewery to a nationally recognised brewery.”
