Polar Ice are delighted to be a recipient of Start At Best funding this year. Start At Best is a Horizon 2020 funded project that focuses on workplace innovation to aid business competitiveness. The main goal is to contribute to the development of a European-led wave of workplace innovation among SMEs and to inspire small companies to adopt an innovative attitude.

With a total budget of €225,000, the Start at Best project aims to support 30 individual companies or a consortia of firms and providers by allocating direct funding through grants of €7,500.We used our funding to facilitate team members working from home and to allow us to conduct virtual auditing for ISO9001, BRCGS V8, and FTA accreditations. It also enables us to implement an employee well-being programme with our logistics team, which will be extended to the production team in the new year.

Polar Ice would like to thank Liz Gavin of EUR Digital Village for assisting us with our successful application. Eur Digital Village helps companies find EU funding opportunities, and they offer a range of services including proposal writing, scoping of funding opportunities, EU information webinars, and online consultations.
