Focus Management Consultants

This bakery business has taken science nutrition to the next level. They have created healthy, delicious products, normally up there as one of the naughtiest in terms of sugar and fat content. We’re talking cookies, donuts, muffins, with half the fat and sugar content, added fibre, and of course up to half the calories. With no compromise on taste, texture, appearance, and sheer indulgence, it’s no wonder their products are flying off the shelves.
Branded retail outlets are already established in some key locations in London and the South. Now the retailers are interested, including Selfridges, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s, it’s time to partner with a third-party co-packer as they gear up to meet national demand.
