With over 30 years of experience working across the food industry, both in the UK and overseas, I have a proven track record as a food consultant, helping producers, brand owners, innovators, and retailers develop and refine their ideas and find the fastest, most cost-effective route to market.
In fact, I’ve been helping food companies develop their business strategies, pinpointing attractive market opportunities and connecting people in the industry since 1996!
A lot has changed since then, but some things stay the same, like my unwavering commitment to my clients and my absolute focus on providing all my customers with full access to my expertise and experience to provide them with personalised, cost-effective solutions to help them grow their businesses in alignment with their values
So, how can I help?
No doubt you’ll have a business strategy backed up by your vision and determination to bring your food product to market. But who do you talk to when you can’t see the wood for the trees? When the contract manufacturing process seems overwhelming, or you just can’t find a viable solution to your packaging or sustainability challenges? And what if you’re trying to enter the UK market from outside the UK? What’s your strategy? Will you need to change your branding or packaging?
The string of challenges can seem never-ending. Successfully bringing your product to market and growing your food business relies on more than a vision and hard work. Of course, both are critical, but it also takes inspired connections, meaningful collaborations and creative problem-solving.
Which is how I can help.
How does it work?I work with my clients on a project basis or as a retained adviser and, once we’ve outlined your scope of work, I carefully curate a team of food industry specialists – many of whom are recognised leaders in their sphere – to develop and implement exactly the right strategy for you.
Why Jane Milton?I’ve worked with hundreds of businesses in the food industry, each one very different. And that’s how I’ll work with you too. Your business is unique, and so are its challenges, but I’ll inspire you to explore all that is possible for your business.
