food microconsulting was created by Olivier to advise food professionals (SMEs and employees) lacking access to traditional consulting due to the high costs involved. Our services are available worldwide in English, French and Italian.

Helping on Strategy

You are a food business owner. You have very little time and a lot to do. You would like to spend more time on strategy but you just do not seem to be able to find it. You prefer direct feedback to complex theories. You do not feel comfortable with major consulting firms and their food industry consultants as you feel that they would not understand your business and would certainly be too expensive.

Bringing Resources

You have built your business on a good idea and hard work. You have developed it mostly on your own. You know your business inside out so it is difficult for you to find efficient help. You are not sure that you could find or afford the right people to help grow your business. You feel that you need more resources to move to the next stage but do not know how to find such resources.
We have just described the situation in which most of our clients are. We created food microconsulting to cater for yours need. Our food industry consultants are available to help.

A hands-on pragmatic approach

food microconsulting is hands-on food industry consulting. We understand food businesses inside out because we have been there.
Olivier, our founder, has worked in multinational and family-owned businesses in 11 countries. He started as an engineer and went up the ladder to MD/CEO roles. He created food microconsulting to pass some of his pragmatic and valuable experience to food SMEs.
At food microconsulting our food industry consultants bring “actionable” knowledge to your company.

Efficiency first

We do not care whether what we do is consulting, mentoring, or coaching if it makes you and your business more efficient.
You want food industry consultants to help you improve and develop your business, not give you theoretical lessons. We chose to put efficiency as our most valued principle. We are result-oriented, not process oriented.
Do not count on us to have complex contracts or produce long and intricate reports. Our exchanges are the base of our consultation.

Your time is precious, we adapt

We know that you have little time. We interact with you the way that is most convenient to you. We optimise our consulting by mostly communicating through emails or messages. You write them when you have time, we answer fast with suggestions that are very pragmatic and direct.
You want some help now, not in 2 weeks’ time. At food microconsulting our food industry consultants can start working with you the very same day that you contact us.

You set the fees, there is no long-term engagement

Here is the good news. You will pay what you think the advice is worth. What do we mean by this? It is simple: we will ask you, in all fairness, what you think this service is worth to you. And if accepted (9 times out of 10 the price you propose is fair and we accept it) it will become our consultation price. Our consultancy then respects the limits of available funds. We are very experienced in concentrating the effort (and consequently the cost) where it matters i.e. the core issue(s).
We believe in efficiency. Our food industry consultants need to bring continuous added value to your business. The best way to ensure that is to have no long-term commitment on either side. You may stop working with us anytime. No reason required. Your level of satisfaction is our only success factor.

A flexible service

Every company is different, every owner has a specific background. Our food industry consultants will adapt to your needs and your background.
We can help you on any general subject you decide (we do not provide expert advice on technical matters, though we may try to put you in contact with the relevant experts) and will take your situation in consideration when accompanying you.

In food microconsulting you have a hands-on pragmatic partner focused on improving your business. It is simple, fast, and affordable. We are looking forward to cooperating with you.
