food microconsulting

growing small and medium size food companies

Small businesses often lack access to the resources they need to bring their ideas to scale.

I created food microconsulting to help small to medium size businesses implement successful growth strategies.

“Olivier was someone who saw more talent and ability within us, than we saw it by ourselves. We have gone further than we imagined we could because Olivier thought we should.” Primož Artač – Managing Director and founder – Tosla

“I made contact with Olivier after reading his profile online, and needing an objective opinion I enquired if he would be available to advise me. Olivier was willing and able, with a few pointed questions, to identify where our attention should be focused.
Using this simple yet intuitive diagnosis, with very little information Olivier has given me insights that I am now able to employ in a strategic manner in order to grow my business. His style was engaging, fast and very direct, which is extraordinary given that he is on another continent and had very little to go on.
His fresh approach brought a much needed “new perspective”. We are now working on these areas. I think Olivier has a skill-set born out of many years of diverse experience that is of particular value in the food sector.”
Tony – Natural Food Ingredients – Cape Town, South Africa.

Olivier Goudineau

I have 28 years of experience in the food industry, started as a Project Engineer, then held Marketing, Sales, Business Development, Managing Director and CEO roles in 11 countries over 3 continents.

I worked at Nestlé and family-owned companies. I have managed large businesses (€ 1bn) as well as start-ups.

I now exclusively work with small and medium size food businesses because I think that they can help make the food industry right.
