Let us have a first chat about it! – We can help you with assessing consumer trends, market sizes and price points. We estimate your future unit costs and co-pilot your business plan development.
Interested in Agilery implementing your ambitious launch plan? Great! Our in-house New Product Development team will bring your product vision into reality with rapid prototyping. This will allow you to validate your idea, to get early consumer feedback and to be able to pitch at distributors, retailers and investors.
Now it is all about scalability. – Questions about shelf life, processing methods and packaging should be adressed early. The product and its claims needs to be compliant with international regulations. Ingredients and packaging materials need to be available within reasonable lead times and the scaled unit costs of the final product need to be in line with your business plan.
But most importantly, any compromises on your original product vision shall stay minimal. And this is exactly where Agilery will make a difference! – Our project leaders in Manufacturing and Operations will find and set up manufacturers and suppliers with a strong “can-do-attitude”. They will not select just one possible setup but will build the most optimal “best-of-breed” supply chain for you.
Very understandable! – You will probably have to outsource your production into a (semi)-industrial setup to be able to focus more on your growth and the commercial aspects of your business.
Leave your operations in our capable hands. It is our “daily bread” to professionalise and scale up artisanal productions into outsourced solutions. The art lies in empowering you to steer the ship while reducing the time you invest in routine operations. We will ensure a smooth transition and, if needed, continuous optimisation in quality and costs - fully leveraging the scale effects that arrise from your volume growth.
There is an inherent clash between food innovators and food contract manufacturers. The product owners want to test new things, iterate, and remain flexible, while the food producers lean towards optimisation and higher volume productions for maximum return on their equipment.
At Agilery we understand both worlds and bridge between them. Our industry partners value the cooperation with us due to streamlined production assignments, clear purchasing orders and exposure to cutting-edge food trends. Innovators admire our ability to navigate the uncertain terrain of innovation projects with deep experience and a structured approach.
Agilery project leaders will smoothen the cooperation between you and your co-manufacturer. If things are really bad, we will find and setup alternative options (also as backups), negotiate new terms, or de-couple process steps for a better overall efficiency.
Team members at Agilery are all food scientists and foodtech engineers. Everyone has thier specific field of expertise which is futher refined through engagement in innovation projects and constant interaction within our ecosystem (encompassing academia, trade exhibitions, and industry leaders).
With a gatekeeper-approach we make sure to be always at the pulse of cutting-edge food know-how and developments. Our offered consulting services range from fermentation techniques, novel food and plant-based alternatives to systematic quality assurance, preservation methods and packaging materials, just to name a few. We will support you in a down-to-earth and uncomplicated manner, based on flexible hourly rates.
