Welcome to Claire Jones Consultancy
Thank you for visiting my website!
I’m Claire Jones, and the owner of Claire Jones Consultancy (original name, I know!).
I have worked in large scale food manufacturing for the last 15 years, and always in Commercial, from Account Exec to Sales Controller. I wanted a change, and so decided to take the bits I loved about my job, and go at it alone, whilst remaining within the food industry, which I love.
I started CJC to support food and drink SMEs to achieve their goals, and guide them through some of the pitfalls that they may encounter as their business grows and evolves. With scale comes great opportunities but also challenges, which can prove costly, especially to small businesses.
My experience of working with retailers means I know what they expect, whether that be in the initial presentation to get a listing or to maintain the relationship far beyond launch. But it’s not all about the listings, knowing the levers to pull to optimise production or maximising your profits are just as important.
Whether you are an established brand or start up, ensuring sustainability of your business is key to a long and happy journey in the exciting world of food and drink.
This handy little guide will give you a great starting point of things to consider when talking to retailers, but every business is different so if you want to know more, give me a call
