Jackie Reid, Owner & Sales Director at Deli Lites, Northern Ireland

I’ve known Malachy for over ten years now and can only recommend him as
a real professional in his food first consulting business. He is highly experienced, with knowledge in the purchasing and sales aspects of the food industry. It was important in my business that he was as passionate about food as I was, his support, enthusiasm and negotiation skills have helped my team immensely. Great balance of skills and an asset to any company.

Fantastic knowledge of the food industry and a great understanding of the economic challenges small to larger companies face in the current climate. A massive asset to any business

Malachy’s knowledge of the retail sector is extensive. His ability to look at the project from a supplier’s and a buyer’s perspective is invaluable when, as a food producer, you are looking to expand.

Ed Kerrigan, Trading Director at Iceland UK

I worked alongside Malachy as Buying Director in Aldi Stores (Ireland) between 2006 – 2013. He was responsible for the strategic direction of the Fresh Food Category and also headed up the Marketing Department within Aldi. He & his team rejuvenated the fresh food offer, particularly fresh meat and his new product development won several awards over the years. He always demonstrated a refreshing interest in his colleagues’ categories apart from his own. He is commercially astute, innovative, creative, and has a real passion for food retail. He is a sound source of advice in Irish food retail business development. He is a trusted and valued former colleague and friend.

Alison Cummins, MD at AP Fine Foods

Malachy is an experienced professional with a wealth of knowledge of the retail trade. We hired Malachy to help us with our commercial proposition for a major retailer and we still use this information to this day. I would highly recommend Malachy if you need insights and information on creating a case for your company to do business with retailers.

Eddie Hynes, Head of Sales & Marketing at Manor Farm

Malachy’s vast retail experience gives him a perspective that you rarely get with bespoke training while his unique delivery style ensures that participants remain engaged and challenged long after the course has been complete. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a provider of high quality negotiation training.

We’re eager to discuss your business needs and answer any questions you may have.
