A NEW academy that dishes up support for the city’s independent food and drink scene is launching in Leeds this week. It is being run by Leeds Beckett University and Leeds City Council with support from the Leeds Business Improvement District (BID).

Andrew Cooper, chief executive at Leeds BID, added: “Independent food and drink is a key ingredient in the city’s culinary offer and is vital in driving a unique food offering all year round, putting Leeds firmly on the national food map.”
