Starting and growing a business

We provide practical advice for new and existing small businesses in the South West and we are also specialists in developing social enterprise and co-operatives.

Our clients are from a wide range of sectors; from local food production and retail to health and wellbeing to bookshops. The images on this page demonstrate the breadth of clients we work with. We have a strong track record of working with Local Authorities and Public Agencies to support the local economy.

The Fruit Tree For Business is a partnership created by Debbie Stewart and Lorna Turner who are business women which means we understand the reality, not just the theory.
