What people are saying...

We appointed Howel Food Consultancy to review the catering offered at the sites owned by Amgueddfa Cymru, National Museum Wales. They provided us with the clear and incisive view that we needed so as to ensure that the catering across our sites meets the expectations of our visitors and supports the local economy by, wherever possible, using local produce of the highest possible quality.

Mark Richards,
Director of Operations, National Museum Wales

Whilst working with Howel Food Consultancy they have been extremely professional. I could rely on them 100% to carry out any organisational work. It was an absloute pleasure to work with Nerys and her team.

Having been a client of Howel Food Consultancy for many years I have always been assured that all members of staff have been professional, approachable and have offered a very high quality of demonstrating, where topical tips are offered freely. Adverse weather conditions are no barrier to the cause of sharing good food! I would certainly recommend their services.

Nerys, I would like to say thank you for the day we spent in your kitchen in Bala. I came away so enthusiastic about what you showed us that weekend. It's not that often I get excited about preparing food but I certainly did that day. Please let me know if you are doing anything else in the area as I'd love to attend another session.

Mark Edwards,
Workshop attendee, North Wales

Just a short note to say that you so much for your help, and immense knowledge on the press trip yesterday. It was a lovely day – a fab showcase of what Wales can offer and I think the journalists were suitably impressed!

I'd like to thank you for two fantastic demonstrations at the Food Festival in Glansevern, we've had wonderful feedback from the visitors.

Paula Anwyl,
Glansevern Food Festival

Gair byr i ddiolch i chi am eich cymorth dros yr wythnosau diwethaf. Dwi'n gwerthfawrogi – mi oedd yn amlwg fod lot fawr o waith caled ac amser wedi mynd i mewn i bob dim, ac mae pawb yma yn y Fenter yn canmol ac yn gwerthfawrogi'n fawr.

Menter Caerdydd,

We do so appreciate your contribution to Amgueddfa Cymru and taking us to new, higher standards.

Her creativity, expertise and in-depth knowledge of the sector in Wales has enabled her to devise top class menus for two consecutive years and, working with top producers, has always delivered.

Antony Jones,

Nerys and team worked with us on increasing our local sourcing for our catering operation, working with Government and local producers to get us the best ingredients at the best price. Great practical advice, in a timely manner, her team has been a great asset.

It is always a delight to work with Nerys. Not only does she bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each project combined with an in-depth understanding of the client's brand values, but she is also open to creative ideas and alternative views. Every time I work with Nerys I'm grateful to have her in the creative team.
