Applications for our August intake are now Open! find out more and how to apply below..


our Vision

The Kitchen Project will change Auckland’s foodscape by supporting food entrepreneurs who are starting out, providing them with affordable commercial kitchen space for product development and mentoring. These businesses will be financially sustainable and bring healthier and diverse food choices to the communities of west Auckland.


If you’re a food entrepreneur and interested in applying for The Kitchen Project, read more about the programme and see the recruitment criteria 


Who is the programme for?


Businesses or individuals in the community with a sustainable food proposition.

Businesses that are starting out (1-2 years into the process), who have ideas and desire to run a food business, but lack the know how and support to succeed.

It is envisioned that The Kitchen Project will provide an opportunity for those who would not have access to food business support, including but not limited to Youth and the migrant communities of those areas.




The pilot location is at 4 Henderson Valley Road in Henderson. The site will have office space and a commercial kitchen.
