About Jane

I’m Jane Milton, one of the UK’s leading food industry experts and founder of Jane Milton Ltd, a specialist food consulting company.

About Jane

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!

About Jane

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?

About Jane

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.


I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, so I’ll tailor-make an incredible team for you. You’ll get to take advantage of years of individual expertise and experience the benefits of our collaboration.


Whatever you want to tackle, I’m confident I can curate the right resources for you, the right people and the right skills to maximise your success in the food industry.


I’d be delighted to discuss your project. Please get in touch, and I can let you know how I can help.


With me heading up your tailor-made team, we’ll work with you on your specific project, which streamlines the cost and ensures you have full access to the particular skills, resources and connections you need to make your project a success.

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
