“The first word that comes to mind with Appleton Greene is quality. They employ the services of turtles, not hares, if you excuse the analogy. Everything is developed carefully and slowly in order to ensure that quality is of the highest possible standard. Having worked as a Quality Management Assessor myself, I instantly warmed to this approach and to my pleasant surprise, so did my clients. I wanted to move away from providing a consultancy service that my clients were employing, merely because they had to for compliance reasons, to a service that they actually wanted and would be more engaged with. This is difficult to achieve in Quality Management, but we achieved this simply by repackaging what I was already doing into a product that was proactive, rather than reactive. I realized during this process, that clients do actually want to improve the quality standards of everything they do, but we all naturally rebel against anything that we perceive is being forced upon us. If we choose to do something, then we will always be more committed to it.”

The food industry is a complex, global collective of diverse businesses that supply much of the food energy consumed by the world population. Only subsistence farmers, those who survive on what they grow, can be considered outside of the scope of the modern food industry. The food industry includes: Regulation: local, regional, national and international rules and regulations for food production and sale, including food quality and food safety, and industry lobbying activities; Education: academic, vocational, consultancy; Research and development: food technology; Financial services insurance, credit; Manufacturing: agrochemicals, seed, farm machinery and supplies, agricultural construction, etc; Agriculture: raising of crops and livestock, seafood; Food processing: preparation of fresh products for market, manufacture of prepared food products; Marketing: promotion of generic products (e.g. milk board), new products, public opinion, through advertising, packaging, public relations, etc; Wholesale and distribution: warehousing, transportation, logistics; Retailing. The global food and beverage retail industry has witnessed significant growth over the last five years and is expected to continue its growth momentum, reaching approximately US $5,776 billion with a CAGR of 5% over the next five years.

“I expected Appleton Greene’s bespoke programs to be consumer-driven, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that their standard programs were too. Whether it is because they operate as virtually as possible, or whether it is because of the significant human resources that are available to them, I am not sure, but one thing I do know, is that the consumer is an integral part of program development.”
