Food industry expert Jane Milton joins Catsai as board advisor.

I’m very excited to share that I’ve been invited to join CatsAI as a food industry expert and board advisor. 


CatsAI uses artificial intelligence (AI) to provide hyper-local demand predictions for retail businesses across the UK and worldwide. Using an algorithm they’ve refined with over 70,000 retail outlets around the world, they also help businesses reduce waste, increase efficiency and improve their customer’s experience.


When I met CatsAI, I was hugely impressed by the level of accuracy their algorithms provide their retail clients, without them needing to spend huge amounts of time feeding data into CatsAI’s platform.  In fact, I was surprised to learn they only need six pieces of data that all companies will have to hand.


But it’s not just accuracy. The affordability of CatsAI’s solution makes it accessible to early-stage challenger brands and smaller businesses as well as bigger firms, giving them deep industry insight when they need it most.


My role will be to help CatsAI understand the different parts of the food industry and where they could provide solutions to producers in retail, food service, and B&I.


I’ll also be helping to connect them to the right people within organisations so we can understand their business and tailor solutions for them.  


The team at CatsAI are small, and I love their drive and enthusiasm and how personable they are….they speak plain non-techy English, so they are really easy to deal with!


CatsAI CEO Stephen Kinns said, “CatsAi are thrilled to have Jane join our team as an unquestionable industry leader and board advisor.   From our very first conversation we knew it was going to be a sparkling relationship.  Jane instantly understood what we did, the challenges we solved,  and the tremendous benefits we quickly bring to the food industry.”

Let Me Introduce You to Francis Gimblett, Author of Gimblett’s Guide to the Best of British Cheeses, and co Owner of Taste of the Vine, an interactive food and drink event company.

Francis and I met in Spring 2021 when I joined one of his monthly Friday evening meet the cheesemaker tasting sessions. I learned so much and loved meeting the cheesemakers. I told other people and very quickly was joined on screen by 10-12 friends each month ….

My copy of Francis book , Gimblett’s Guide to the Best of British Cheeses has become very well thumbed and through it i have tracked down cheesemakers around the UK and even found a cheesemaking course in Tottenham, London inspired by him.

He is a great story teller so i know you will enjoy hearing about :

  • his journey in food and drink
  • people who have inspired or encouraged him
  • his French mother’s cooking and how that added to his food journey
  • how he has for many years, resisted repitition and always desired change, t learn or to reinvent things BUT
  • how possibly now after almost 2 years of constant change, he my just be happy for a little more predictability for a while
  • we talk about work life balance and partnering in business with his wife
  • about the importance of understanding your P&L and planning for your business right from Day 1
  • we also get a hint or two about his next taste adventure….

I cannot wait
