About us

To maintain our individual professional status of the FCSI (Foodservice Consultants Society International) we are required to operate in accordance with the Society’s Code of Professional Conduct and demonstrate we follow a programme of Continual Professional Development (CPD) to ensure we remain informed and aware of Industry development.  Our growth and performance are monitored via the Society’s Ethics and Education Committee.

We do not assign junior or inexperienced consultants to lead roles on our projects.  Few aspects of assignments are routine, especially those in heritage buildings. Continuity of a senior consultant’s full involvement is, in our opinion, essential.  Our consultants are imaginative, innovative and experienced in working as part of a collaborative design and project team.
