"I have worked with Susan and the team at FBDC over many years, and they bring to the Food Development scene an approach that is refreshing and challenging. Susan has a passion for not only great food, but ensuring that it is relevant to the chosen market and eating occasion. She builds her approach on extensive research and understanding of the product area and the target customers."

"As brand director of SPAR UK I worked with Susan Pieterse and the team at FBDC and was always impressed by their level of professionalism, innovation and skill in all aspects of food development. They helped us to transform our own brand product range which became multi award winning due in most part to their dedication and flair."
Susan Darbyshire, SPAR UK Brand Director 1997-2017
"We Chose to work with FBDC, above any other food development and technical consultants, because not only did they understand the importance of creating a product that aligned with our brand values – provenance, taste and quality – but also their vast technical knowledge and experience allowed them to find creative solutions to the challenges that were presented to them as part of our brief."
Pippa Murray, Pip and Nut Founder
"Working with FBDC has been fantastic - they have an amazing team who are extremely talented and supportive. Great to work with and would highly recommend them"
"Our paths crossed with FBDC when we won 2 QFA awards in 2018. Up till this point all our sauces were produced in our home kitchen and FBDC have played a pivotal role in enabling us to upscale in order to expand. From sourcing a manufacturer which best suits our needs to product development, their support and assistance has been invaluable. They offer a genuine personal and bespoke service with Susan and Nicki always being accessible for any queries no matter how small. As complete novices venturing into the unknown, we are incredibly grateful for all they have done."
