The Food Guide - UK's #1 Food Business Start-Up Expert.


"The Food Guide - helping and guiding your food business to growth."

Hi, I’m Claire Brumby – The Food Guide; Mentor, Speaker, Consultant and Best Selling Author of The Winning Mix: Launch and Grow your Food Business without Selling your Soul.

The Food Guide was born through a real passion to help, teach and mentor.  As a result ‘guide’ entrepreneurs because I know how difficult it can sometimes be in your food business.

I use first-hand knowledge and experience gained through founding my own multi award winning premium snacking brand; Scrubbys Crisps into a fiercely competitive sector of the food industry.  I took this from conception through to multiple and high-profile listings, nationally and internationally, therefore I understand your journey.

Consequently, I have a simple mission…to help your business and brand grow and thrive profitability.

This is achieved through sharing the wealth of expertise, knowledge and contacts gained over 25 years.

For both established or emerging business; I have the skills, resources, understanding and know how to help and assist.

I want you to be successful, happy, and as a result fulfilling your food business dreams.

I am a proud mum to my 3 children, a Virgin Start-Up Mentor, a judge for: The Quality Food Awards, Nourish Food Awards and The Great Taste Awards, and regularly write and deliver seminars, workshops and masterclasses for clients including Nottingham Trent University and London Metropolitan University on subjects including; building a brand, launching a food business, routes to market, innovation, pitching to buyers and much more.

I was thrilled to be nominated in The National Mentoring awards by some of my food clients for the mentoring I do with them, and equally thrilled too, to be a finalist in the Specialist Category in The Business Book Awards with The Winning Mix: Launch and grow your food business without selling your soul.

I have appeared on national TV and radio stations sharing my business insights, and have been featured in Forbes and other publications, oh…and I swam The English Channel in a relay team in June 2018!
