FDPartner - Moving Food
Moving Food has a successful track record in launching new products into major retail multiples within the UK and Europe. They focus on innovation in food technology, helping SME’s and foodies - the “idea creators” - get to market.
Founded by Stephen Minall in 2004, Moving Food is unique in that it can ‘speak’ for both Retail and Catering. The team have worked extensively for many years in both sectors.
MFL advises and consults in all areas of food production. Whether it be new start-up innovation or adjustments in products or packaging, they can identify opportunities in sectors such as grab-n-go and ambient longer shelf life FMCG ranges. Moving Food can also takes the strain out of finding sources for production or alternative packaging services, as well as getting you access to all-important buyers.
MFL have been particularly successful in launching international brands into the UK market - specifically working with producers to not only adjust their product to maximise local appeal - but also to identify and develop key routes to market. One such example is with Canadian producer, Wowbutter. This no-nut peanut butter is now listed and sold in Holland & Barrett, Amazon, and Tescos.
As experts in their field, the team are regularly called upon to write for trade journals, present at Retail Consortiums in UK and Europe and been seen on BBC Business News as leading experts in food related stories. They also judge in the Food Service Awards, The Cateys and The Quality Food Awards.
