Trust is of the highest importance in our industry, which is why we prefer to let our clients do the talking. Here's how we are helping F&B brands...

"Gavin really is one in a million and a real gem. He is a fountain of knowledge and really understands the food & drink industry, like no other. There are very few people he does not know or hasn't met. Gavin gives practical and thoughtful advice, delivered in a kind and considered way.

He is always there when you need him and has a way of making you feel special.

Gavin is responsive and supportive, and calm in crisis moments, which is essential as a start-up journey is often full of unexpected 'twists and turns'. Gavin is someone that I completely trust, a thoroughly decent bloke, who is a must for any challenger brand looking to unlock their growth." - Susan Gafson, Co-Founder & Director, Pep & Lekker

"Gavin has a sound grip on commercials and an ear so close to the ground, your inbox will be inundated with action points. For anyone new to F&B this is extremely useful, and he is a fantastic sounding board for your ideas, always offering constructive feedback and sound advice. Invaluable. Thanks Gavin!'' - Tahi Grant-Sturgis, Founder, Jamu Wild Kids

''As an daytime office worker and night time entrepreneur, I run at 100%, 100% of the time. So I needed a mentor who could help me refine the many ideas and things that I come across. I just needed directions to run in and Gavin is a key part of the navigational system for the ideas and questions that we have as a company.

He knows enough about a range of things that affect our business whether its manufacturing, suppliers, logistics, brand building he continues to be a source of valuable insight and guidance and I really lucked out to have him on board the No Guilt Bakes journey."- Taeya & Maya, Founders, The No Guilt Bakers

''Gavin has been fantastic since day one. Actually even before that: already before signing a contract he has been sharing great pieces of advice to improve our products and overall strategy.

He helped us fully understand the buyers' point of view, create amazing sales pitches and secure our first national listing. On top of that, he is basically 24/7 available if you have a doubt or if you need advice from someone with more than 20-years experience in the industry. Definitely, someone who is really passionate about his job and willing to go the extra mile. We would definitely recommend working with Titan Brands to any start-up and challenger brand in the food and drink industry!'' - Edoardo Imparato, Co-Founder, Small Giants

"For start-up and challenger brands, breaking into the retail market is a tough battle and often not a fair fight. Gavin has been right there with us, providing industry 'intel' and supporting break-in opportunities.

His understanding of our product and our business mission has been vital to building a great relationship. Gavin feels like one of our team and is exactly the person you want to be shoulder-to-shoulder with when the going gets tough." - Jason Clarke, Creative Director, Genius Brewing
