As a cheftelevision presenterrecipe writerCook School owner and champion of local produce, I see food production through the eyes of the myriad of people – farmers, processors, hunters, butchers, fishmongers, retailers, transporters – who get food from the ocean, land and sky onto your plate.

I understand exactly what it takes in this industry to perform our jobs to the best of our ability. It is this depth and range of knowledge that fuels the Plenti Consultancy, not to mention some pretty good contacts built up over the past 20 years. Our highly experienced team of advisory consultants, industry experts and business leaders share what we know with clients to bring their food service up to our guaranteed levels of excellence.

We want to work with high-calibre businesses where food is an integral part, but not necessarily the main function of the company. Whether you are feeding staff or customers, producing food product or processing for export we could make a huge difference to your business. Whatever your needs, together we can achieve remarkable results. As a first step, please contact
