BiG Challenge

As the first stage of the BiG Challenge draws to a close, participating teams are preparing their final reports ready for submission.  The teams took the chance to make some final sales during the trade fayre held on Tuesday 11th February during lunchtime and two of our teams sold out completely at the event.  Out of the original 10 teams, four have made it through to the end of the competition: Recipes Worldwide, Sweet Treats, Green fingers and Jarful.  All of these teams have produced really good products and made a profit. 

We were visited by Nathan Delves, Recycling and Innovations director from Veolia Sheffield and Liz Yoxall from BiG challenge who viewed the stalls and gave the students some feedback on their business and completing their final report. Nathan enjoyed the event immensely and offered to coach the teams further should the make it through to the final stages of the competition.
