DEDICATED TO FOOD.
foodlights consulting – these are Annika Becker and Nathalie Gourdin. Founded in 2019, we are the management consulting for the foodservice industry, addressing all aspects of food safety and quality management.
What sets us apart? We combine expertise in quality management and many years of experience in the fields of system catering, food industry and retail. And we’re really good at it!
We interpret excellent consulting as understanding and consistently pursuing your concerns and requirements from the very beginning. We aim to build a long-term partnership with all our business partners. One that is characterized by commitment, appreciation, and authenticity. This means that we do not work for you, but with you and your employees, side by side.
Our goal and motivation is to make food safety and quality management not only a legal requirement but rather to see it as an opportunity to set you apart of your competition.
More than simply providing you with an analysis, we want to guide you through the entire implementation process to make sure that optimizations can be truly realized. To achieve this goal, we act like short-term colleagues who assist you with all the tasks that might arise. Drawing on our many years of experience, we are well equipped to generate real added value for our clients by providing specialized consulting and extensive expertise. We achieve your goals together, driven by the utmost motivation, and perfectly tailored to your needs.
We invite you to benefit from our expertise and experience. So, let’s make conscious decisions collectively! By the way: all data and information you provide to us will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and managed in a highly secure IT infrastructure.

A YOUNG COMPANY,
WELL EXPERIENCED IN PUTTING INTO PRACTICE
Ensuring quality, optimizing processes, minimizing risks, strengthening relationships. This is what foodlights consulting stands for. Together we have more than 20 years of experience in the foodservice industry. Having been a perfectly attuned team for many years, we can rely on each other – and you can rely on us.
“I can rely on more than ten years of professional experience in the foodservice industry and was previously Senior Quality Manager at one of Germany’s leading system catering companies. As such, I was responsible for all questions concerning food law, both in day-to-day business and in terms of the company’s strategic development.
This put me in charge of the design, implementation, and monitoring of internal and external audits, staff training, and the HACCP concept. As a former quality management officer at one of Germany’s leading bakery manufacturers, I am an expert on all aspects of food safety and quality management in the food industry. Besides the planning, implementation, and further development of the company-specific quality policy and quality targets, I was responsible for the IFS certifications and played a crucial role in establishing the associated QM system. Thus creating an essential link between management and production. ”
“Prior to the founding of foodlights consulting, I was responsible for the strategic and operational quality management of a major system catering company. In this role, I defined all quality-relevant aspects for the systematic selection of raw materials and suppliers as well as the monitoring of their compliance. As part of this, I was in charge of designing and executing supplier audits, which had a vital influence on the company’s successful supplier management. Operationally, my responsibilities included setting quality standards for the restaurants and checking them on site. Included in this was also the drawing up of comprehensive quality-relevant documentation and manuals.
Many years of professional experience in quality management and retail round off my expertise, making me well aware of all relevant quality standards.”
INSPIRE TO BIND
Our clients are all players in the foodservice industry. Be it trade, the food industry, communal catering or gastronomy, from start-ups to medium-sized companies to large corporations. As a partner for our clients, we pursue a common goal.
IMPRESS WITH PERFORMANCE,
CONVINCE WITH RESULTS.
OUR CUSTOMERS – A SELECTION
MANY PATHS, ONE GOAL
HOW WE WORK
For us, there is not just the ONE client. Each and every client is considered and treated individually. What is suitable for one client is not somehow made suitable for the next client, but individually planned and realized. To achieve this, we have various tools at our disposal, which we use where necessary. But before it gets that far, the first meeting is first and foremost.
Professional, informative, hopefully charming, but always an open-minded approach: this is how we imagine the beginning of a potential collaboration. Be it on the phone or in-person over a cup of coffee or a glass of good wine: we are always available for an initial non-binding meeting during which we can discuss your company and your needs. At this stage, it is not important whether these are already concrete concepts or just first ideas. What matters is that our meeting is an enrichment for you.
WHAT COSTS NOTHING
IS WORTH NOTHING
As individual as our clients and their needs are, so individual are our compensation models. We work with both fixed models – a fixed daily rate – and package prices. The compensation, therefore, always depends on the specific project.
Even if we have not yet met in person over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, we look forward to your call or message. Our sales contact Annika Becker will be happy to assist you.
