Developed by Food Island Partnership as an easy to use one-page tool to build a new food business idea. We recommend food entrepreneurs start by listing their assumptions with a sticky note for each question starting with the Green (Idea Section). Assumptions should then be tested by reaching out to potential customers, evaluating competition, etc. Ideas can quickly be adjusted as new learnings emerge.
