What we do
The path to launching a successful new food or drink brand is intrepid. Any entrepreneur wishing to take it will need courage, determination and self-belief. There are huge hurdles to overcome and the stark reality is that over half of all consumer brand launches will fail in the first year. However, for those that succeed there are potentially rich rewards and a chance to create retail history. Think Innocent, think Green & Blacks, think Gu.
Who we’ve helped

In each sector launching a brand will differ in terms of route to market, marketing requirements and interface with customers. We ensure that before taking on any projects or new clients that there is no conflict of interest and will always be transparent and open.
