The Food Practice Ltd - our business is food product development and innovation. Without a doubt, the key to success for The Food Practice over the last 14 years has been the vast experience the team has in all areas of the food industry, particularly food retail and product development.

It is hard for any company to keep up with the dynamic consumer market. Every business needs to take a step back occasionally and refocus. That is where we come in. We are able to give you objective advice, recommendations and realistic commercial solutions. We offer a fresh pair of eyes.

We consult on all areas of the product development process from strategic thinking to concept generation and launch. Along with our experience and expertise we bring a passion for food, food trends and significant project management skills as well as a vast knowledge of ingredients and factory processes.

Our holistic approach is defined by our belief that maximising the potential of a business is as much about understanding the business and its people as it is about identifying product opportunities. We spend time getting to know your business to ensure the end recommendations truly fit with your company strategy.

Our core values:

We use good ingredients. We are fiercely commercial and want to help you succeed. We are passionate about good quality food but that doesnt mean we only develop expensive food - good value doesnt mean cheap, poor quality.  We will deliver what you want at the price you want to a high standard.

We never use artificial additives. We are experts in this field. We will colour it, thicken it or make things runny! - All with natural ingredients.

We aspire to green credentials.  We do not claim to be eco warriors however, the environment, local sourcing, fair trade, sustainability, good positive nutrition, texture and flavour through quality ingredients and careful processing, are at the heart of everyone involved with The Food Practice.

We want to have a positive impact on the food industry and our vast experience means we have the knowledge to gain commercial success with a greener approach.

"We used The Food Practice Ltd for strategic support and insight around a key business project with one of our major retail customers. The result was invaluable in terms of clear, concise recommendations. These guys know their stuff! It was also the support and communication during the project that I found refreshing. They are easy to deal with, pragmatic and results orientated. In my experience, a rare combination."
