Insight Programme Rules of Engagement for Individual Companies

The document below should be signed by companies receiving Welsh Government (WG) data via the Insight Hub or directly through a Cluster/Programme lead.

Historically, companies have not accessed high quality insight.  Part of the aim of the Programme is to help companies realise the value of insight and encourage them to invest in their own data and insight in the longer term.

Data providers are contracted to provide data to Welsh Government for the Insight Programme on the understanding that it will be shared with, and used in business support for, the benefit of Welsh Food and Drink companies with head offices in Wales only.  Data is owned by Welsh Government.  Copyright is owned by the data providers and any misuse puts future access to data in jeopardy.

Brookdale Consulting is responsible for managing this contract on behalf of Welsh Government.  The data is disseminated to Welsh Companies via Clusters, The Trade Programme and the Insight Programme (WG Stakeholders) as well as at other Welsh Government Food and Drink company focused events.

Company Sharing Rules

  • Companies cannot share slides or data to any 3rd party; they can only use it internally within their company.  The only exception is that a company may share a few slides/ or some data as part of their presentations to customers. No whole presentations or reports can be forwarded to any 3rd Party.
  • No data can be shared onto any public forum.
  • Any company that is found to break these rules will be liable for any subsequent action pursued by the data provider.
  • If in doubt, please seek advice from the Brookdale team at
