Helping you create innovative food and drink products

Hi, I’m Melanie Loades. I founded Froghop to give producers, product developers, food and drink businesses and startups access to the skills, processes and experience they need to turn their ideas and prototypes into finished products.

I have over 20 years experience in the food and drink industry and have helped take hundreds of products to market. The Froghop team are approachable and enthusiastic, and we offer creative solutions to help you create innovative food and drink products.
