Food and Drink has been our heartland sector since we started out over 35 years ago. Since then, we’ve helped insurgents, the nation’s favourites and the world’s leaders in brand, private label and agri-business.

Our experience and expertise extend across the whole value chain, from the source supply all the way through to the customer transaction. We work with retailers, food service businesses and the on-trade / on-premise, ensuring we have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the key customer channels.

We have also moved beyond just food and drink for humans, becoming the leading consultancy in the global Pet Food market.

We stay one step ahead by partnering with leading digital businesses, developing our own proprietary insights to ensure we’re at the forefront of the technological and consumer behaviour changes that are creating opportunities for our clients today.
