“Melanie has been the most incredible support in helping me get my business off the ground. From helping me with the recipe development to advising me on labels – and all that comes in between – Melanie has been amazing! Her wealth of knowledge is incredible and I couldn’t recommend her more highly!”
Margie Broadhead, Founder
“I first spoke to Froghop for advice when I was looking in to legal requirements for food labelling and nutritional information, for a new business idea. As the business is online, the official guidance was unclear and Froghop helped me understand my options around voluntary information to be compliant with EU food legislation.
“Once the product was more developed, Froghop worked with me again to put together comprehensive nutritional profiles for all of my meals. Being aimed at the fitness and nutrition industry, the meals required detailed profiles highlighting % of RDA for vitamins and minerals, as well as basic nutritional information.
“Froghop have helped me provide my customers with all the information they need, and set me up with the tools and knowledge I needed to profile recipes myself. I now have the control to adjust recipes and see the effect it has on their nutrition, as well as profiling weekly specials without having to call on consultants.
“I would definitely recommend Froghop for any new food venture!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Melanie on our new edible paints. So much so that I commissioned a new range of glow in the dark paint and I also made sure to recommend her to a couple of friends who wanted to create their own edible products.”
Clare and Judith
“Working with Melanie to develop my product and extend the shelf life has been an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend her services.”
“Working with Mel and the team has been brilliant! She has a wealth of knowledge and is incredibly resourceful. She has also been very adaptable in her approach to refining and developing the final product to capture the true essence of what we wish to create for our market.”
“Froghop’s consultancy session was PRICELESS.”
