Why Food First Consulting?
“We help buyers and suppliers do better business together”
Food First Consulting was founded by Malachy O’Connor, a passionate food industry expert. Over the years, Malachy saw so many potentially great deals fall through, not because buyers and suppliers disagreed, but because they were on completely different pages, with completely different needs. Our vision is that those great, once-in-a-decade deals, don’t need to be so rare. Our mission is to help suppliers and buyers do better business together by understanding each other’s needs, by bridging the gap between them.
Food First Consulting bridges that gap.
