Stephen is able to provide consultancy services to a wide range of clients, and can provide insight into topics including business start-up strategy, niche crop development and food trends as examples. Having himself been thought the journey of founding and developing a food-based business, he is in an excellent position to provide insight based upon his own successes and failures.

Over the past fifteen years Stephen has developed skills and experience within the food production sector and holds both a first-class BSc and MSc degree in crop production from Harper Adams University, and a PhD in plant pathology from the University of Nottingham. It was during this period of study that he founded and developed The British Quinoa Company alongside his parents on his families farm. Stephen has worked on the family farm since an early age and is able to provide useful insights to clients based upon his academic and on-farm background. 

This mix of both academic and on-farm experience has provided Stephen with practical problem solving skills and business management experience within the food production sector, which can be transferred to advising other companies who are on a similar journey.
