Since its formation in 2010, we have worked extensively within the interface between the food industry and the Innovation and research communities, building on the years of experience that the founders Alan Marson and Jacek Obuchowicz gained from working within open innovation roles in industry - working in global and major UK branded business.
Not only do we have an appreciation of the challenges facing Industry and academia but also the difficulties both start-ups and emergent technologies have in gaining a foothold in the market
Principally we act as accelerator for the food industry providing access to growth, supporting internal teams to overcome technical and commercial challenges, helping academics and inventors bring their science to market
Over the past 10 years, we have helped several novel technologies enter the market
supporting development and commercial exploitation, combining the full use of commercial and science know how with our extensive network throughout the industry.
Both Alan and Jacek, both have passion for supporting the development of talent
And continue be active in this area through providing mentorship for many of the Junior consultants whom we have working in the business each year.
Although Jacek ( City ) and Alan ( Utd ) may support the different sides of Manchester, they are a formidable duo actively work together, helping overcome innovation and commercial challenges within the food industry.
