Food & Consumer Goods

The food and consumer market is developing rapidly with ever changing tastes and habits. The more demanding and discerning consumer is also becoming more affluent and thus significantly increasing spend in a number of areas such as dining out and luxury goods.

We have experience working with a broad range of food and consumer businesses advising them on their strategic M&A options within the rapidly changing market.

Within the food sector we cover a range of areas including food manufacture, food distribution, restaurant operators and niche food importers.

Within the consumer sector we cover retail, leisure and hospitality.
