Claire Jones set up her own consultancy business to support SMEs with the challenges they can face within the Food & Drink industry. After 15 years working within large scale manufacturing for Greencore, Claire can identify the key areas to drive efficiencies and profit optimisation within a business and provide support to implement change.
Claire also understands the multiple retailers, what makes them tick and what they expect from their suppliers. The shape your business is in is as important as what you say in front of a buyer.
Alongside manufacturing, Claire consults with hospitality businesses looking to change their operations to ensure they are streamlined, delivering for customers and, of course, profitable.
Claire’s excellent commercial acumen allows her to ask the right questions to get the right results and to challenge the status quo. This is not always easy for an SME but if the answer is ‘because that’s the way we’ve always done it’, there is scope to change the answer.
Through a combination of expertise and passion Claire provides practical and supportive consultancy to enable SME’s to achieve their goals using best practice procedures and processes learnt from one the largest food manufacturers in the UK.
