  • 30 years in the food industry working in product, processing and packaging development.

One key learning: it is far better to "know why" something happens rather than just "know how". With "know why" you can extrapolate not just interpolate.

My aim is to help food companies grow and improve their businesses by helping them develop "know why" as well as "know how". I can do this by asking the right questions and applying my broad range of technical and business skills.

I have extensive expertise in

- Food science, food engineering and bioprocessing.

- Dairy science, especially cheese.

- Water and waste water treatment

- Food ingredients and interactions

- Training and developing technical staff in key non-technical skills

- Developing Innovation & R&D strategies to support business strategies

- R&D business processes such as Stage - Gate
