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.

Fresh Banter with Giles Christopher, the food, drink and hospitality photographer


Giles and I met many years ago through his wife and business partner Abi, and since then we have all worked on a lot of jobs together and have spent a lot of time together socially chatting about business and life.


He got some great advice from his Dad about offering to do things nobody else likes to do at work and making himself a valuable team member and sound found he had multiple job offers …


He’s run his own business for over 20 years and we talk about how basic business skills should be part of the curriculum for everyone nowadays


He shares about the prep that goes into shoots and how technology has changed the job so much and how much time photographers now spend in post production too. And about the sheer weight of kit that he takes to ‘location’ shoots too.


Giles loves tech and is always pushing himself to learn new ways of doing things , or master new equipment and he also talks about keeping up with and ahead of that if you can


A really interesting insight into all that food and drink photography involves, and some great tips for podcasts and business blogs to watch out for too.


I’m really pleased we managed to book Giles for a chat in this last episode of series 3…
